Tell us a little about your background in design:
I’ve always had a passion for yacht design, which initially led me to consider pursuing a career as a naval architect when I studied engineering in Trieste. After a year of studying, I had the privilege of meeting Luciano Di Pilla, a prominent figure in the world of interior yacht design, known for his work on some of the largest yachts of his era. I was presented with the opportunity to work alongside him, which led me to leave university and join his team. I believed that gaining hands-on experience with the best in the industry was more valuable than completing my education.
