Profoundly stimulated and fascinated by the urban and social structure of modern day Rome, I began studying the often violent contrast between Rome's historic buildings and its commercial spaces.
When I create an object, I study the interior for which it is destined, try to understand the unique qualities I want to underscore, and strive to conceive it in relation to the people who "inhabit" the surrounding environment. When I design an object, the choice of materials is equally important to that of the technical, functional elements. Each object has an evocative power that I try to determine and emphasize.
My goal is to find a correct harmony between things which already have a history and things which are beginning their object or spatial life now. In my work, I strive to underline my respect for the world we live in, its peoples, and its different cultural and material traditions.
