Particularly interested in ecological matters I’ve started planning following the principles of permaculture, an approach to designing human settlements and perennial agricultural systems that mimics the relationships found in natural ecologies. I’m particularly interested in therapeutic landscape; since the time of university, when i developed a planning method for green areas dedicated to children, I’ve been occupied in the ecotherapy research and in the promotion of healing gardens planning for psychophysical rehabilitation, in collaboration with PN studio and the University of Milan. At the University of Milan i collaborate with the agricultural engineer department working on healing gardens plans and as tutor in specialization course on healing gardens at university of agriculture.

In 2010, together with Francesca fornasari, architect, i won International garden festival competition - Chaumont sur loire - with the garden entitled ‘La reverie dans la nature’ a symbolical journey of reflection and reconnection with the natural system through specific steps and settings, that represent the old and historical relationships and practices between man and nature. in love with nature and children fairytale world i work as naturalistic illustrator and collaborate with publishing houses of art and gardening magazines
