After the graduation in Fine Arts in Venice, he founded his own design studio in 1993 in Chiampo, Vicenza, Italy where he combines interest in research, materials, production processes and technology. He designs several marble collections with important companies in the sector, investigating the characteristics of the stone, such as the surface, gravity, translucency, color, the use of digital technology and the reduction of waste. He participated to many conferences about design, becoming part of the ADI Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige directors. His projects have been published in books and magazines and exhibited in international events. Since 2014 he is the curator of the Marmomac Verona experimental pavilion. He is a professor of design at the University of Ferrara.
