About Me
I graduated in 2000 at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Florence on the symbology of the monastic garden. I later specialized in Landscaping and got my Ph.D in Landscape Planning at Florence University, where I have also been Teaching Assistant the courses of ‘History of Garden and Landscape’ and ‘Restoration of Historical Gardens’. Since 2013 I have been lecturer as Adjunct Professor in ‘Gardens and Landscape’ at New York University, Villa La Pietra, Florence, and I continue my activity of research on gardens. Parallel to school and university study I've been regularly working in my parents' hotel in Cattolica (near Rimini) all my summer holidays, and now with enthusiasm I continue, in parallel with my research on gardens, this family tradition in Florence.
