As an architect and as a designer, my "design" is guided by curiosity, by aesthetic and formal research, and above all by passion. In the architectural composition I love the well-defined volumes, the sharp contrasts of light and shadows, the use of natural materials combined with large windows, which characterize the houses I build. In design I try to make my objects alive and animated. I am fascinated by the natural elements and they, together with the light, its nuances, reflections and the shadows it generates, guide my research. These elements change during the day, as well as at the changing of the seasons, as intensity and as colors; the interiors of the houses, like the objects, seem to continually reinvent themselves and tell different and always new stories. As an architect and designer I use elements such as light, reflections, shadows, which change throughout the day and the seasons, to give life and dynamism to the spaces I design and to the objects I make, which change over time and always tell stories different. In the activity of architect I combine a modern language with elements of tradition; I approach the exposed concrete to the stone coverings. In the villas I design, I insert internal gardens, large windows and green cavities to create bright interiors. My design follows suggestions and brings them to the decorative elements, enhancing the lightness of origami through lights, reflections and shadows on the walls; breaks up the kaleidoscopes and reinvents them around the flowers to create new and unexpected images. I like venturing into ecodesign, drawing inspiration from organic forms, from the cell of the beehive to the veins of a leaf, to draw bookcases and vases. I graduated in architecture in July 2005 with the landscape project Redevelopment of the Sarca river corridor with which I participated in the European ideas competition Dessiner sur l'herbe. Between September 2005 and May 2006 I attended a FSE professional course at the EnAIP Veneto with which I acquired the qualification of "Interior Architecture Designer", recognized pursuant to Regional Law 845/78; at the end of this I participated in the presentation of the experimental project of restoration and functional recovery of the fortification system of the coast of the Municipality of Cavallino-Treporti. In July 2006 I obtained the qualification to practice the profession by registering with the Order of Architects of the province of Padua with the number 2628. In 2007 I attended the "Specialized refresher course on alternative energy and energy saving" of ESSE TI ESSE at the Order of Architects of Padua. Since February 2006 I have been working in the guerrarchitetti studio, dealing with architectural design and interior design. For some years now I have also begun to move in the world of design: in April 2013 I presented my first works at the SaloneSatellite at the Salone del Mobile in Milan and this year I exhibited at Lambrate in a personal space at Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week . My goal as a designer is to create objects that do not end at a first glance, but that at every glance show a new facet and offer a different image, depending on the time of day, the angle of the light, of the position of the viewer. They are objects that interact with the environment in which they are located, that "animate" with light, designing the space with the texture of the shadows they project, and, in my most recent creations, creating a chromatic calediscope and reflections thanks to the use of the RADIANT
