«I am Italian and I have spent most of my life in the Veneto area, surrounded by the world of art and design. I have always loved languages, and traveling to Spain seemed like a great option for my personal and professional growth. I had already had the opportunity to spend one year in an international school, in Scotland, which made me realize the great advantages of studying in a multicultural environment. I really wanted to experience that again, and learn a new language and culture.
I think the environment I grew up in helped me shape my scientific and analytical capacities and, at the same time, awaken in me a great passion for art and design. I’ve always seen architecture as the perfect balance between these two passions, and that’s why I decided to study it.
I think architecture at IE University has a very up-to-date program that prepares us to be 21st-century architects. Since architecture is rapidly evolving, I believe that one of the strongest points of the program is the internship period. For a timeframe of four months, second-, third-, and fourth-year students can work in companies from all over the world and continue their lessons online. In my opinion, these great experiences help students not only understand how “real life” works, but also helps them learn about tangent fields of architecture and, most importantly, about time management.
IE University has molded me in lots of aspects. In addition to the knowledge I’ve gained, IE University has provided me with a solid network of contacts, and the confidence of knowing that nothing is impossible. Being surrounded by other interesting students and professors, each of them with a great story behind them, can only be motivating.
After graduating, I would like to gain some experience in the world of high-end design and learn how this business works, how new designs are advertised and how new clients are obtained. Once I gain some knowledge I would like to specialize in Design Management and eventually run my own studio.»
