Bio:

Architect, always fond of art. Born in Naples in February 1990. Graduated in 2018 with honours and publication right. For me, making Architecture means working with the atmosphere of a place. I am fascinated by cities, by their architecture, history, and I firmly believe in the human and cultural values of civilization. I cultivate a passion for astronomy, for classical music and its composers. My goal is to affirm these principles in the workplace, to grow individually and professionally.

 

How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

When I was 12 years old I went on a trip with my parents to Rome, I was fascinated by the Coliseum and I stayed all day trying to draw it on a sheet with a pencil. I began to copy all the architectures of the most famous paintings.

 

What do you do?

My aim is to create beauty by satisfying the needs of real life.

The possibility to continue and carry on the thought of the masters of the past, expressing the desire to improve the built environment more and more.

The Bayard station, completed in 1839, united Naples with the city of Portici and was the first Italian railway connection. The ancient Bourbon factory has long been in a state of total abandonment: the vegetation completely covers the construction, preventing the perception of the volumes that compose it. The project provides for the redemption of the historical station of the first railway in Italy. Opportunity to recover, safeguard and integrate a fragment of the memory in Naples.
