He graduated in Architecture in Milan and started his career in the seventies, working alongside his father Livio in their design studio.During this period he developed lighting engineering projects for many art galleries and temporary exhibits, hotels, offices, showrooms, shops and private homes. The Scintilla system, which he co-designed with his father, is a FontanaArte bestseller and the result of the experience he gained during those years. He also designed Sillaba in the same period, followed by Sillabone, inaugurating a new business sector for the Milan-based company, on the fine line between decorative and technical lighting.
