He graduated from the University of Parma in 2004 with a red diploma and with the title of a specialized architect.

In 2005, he became an honorable member of the Italian Chamber of Architects of the City of Parma. He has also been a member of the Czech Chamber of Architects since 2008.

As an admirer and lover of Czech architecture, he has conducted a number of his own surveys and exhibitions (exhibition “Secession in Prague, Art Nouveau and Cubism”, Parma – 1998, and also a publication called “Socialistic Realism in Czechoslovakia: 1948-1989”, Prague – 2009). He focuses on cohesiveness of historical and architectural elements as a part of renovations of historical buildings, new construction within the frame of whole urbanistic units and interior design solutions. He perceives a simple and, at the same time, elegant creation style as a “rich minimalistic style”. In his studies, he breaks away from nihilistic elements of current architecture and applies new lines, areas and forms, implementation of which is perceived as a new, continuously developing element.
