I’m from Ossola Valley and studied architecture in Milan. I did an MA in Landscape Architecture: first year at RWTH in Aachen, second year in Milan. After graduating in 2011 I worked for a stone builder for two years. I’m teaching at a local building school and am involved in restauration projects in Ossola. 2013 I began working with Werkidee Architekten in Switzerland. 2014 I produced a study on social critically in the recovery of rural heritage commissioned by the province of Verbania.

Miserable Architecture


Being human, satisfying basic needs and other poetics

Miserable Architecture


Being human, satisfying basic needs and other poetics
Future architecture has to mediate past knowledge to contemporary life while infusing instructions from planet Earth

Europe consists of vast amounts of abandoned rural land depleted of its meaning. The current interest in agriculture augmented by aspects of “health” lead us to approach the rural object, yet most often chasing the simulacra of a lost rural world.

I believe in a profound re-reading of this rural abandon as a multi-layered tissue devoid of caricature landscape to function as a basis for thinking about alternative uses of urban areas and to inspire new models of urban densities.

A revolutionary shift would consist of searching for solutions of urbanity set within rural historical agglomerations. This in order to generate a landscape with polycentric hyper-urbanities, inhabited by people who care for, are connected to, and understand their immediate environment and live their lives accordingly.
Why should rural European heritage be the source for inspiration for future architecture? Because farmers had to make the very most of what was available. That’s sustainability.
