I’m a PhD student in engineering and applied sciences at the University of Bergamo, Italy, where I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Building Engineering. Since 2013, I have worked in a research group composed by Prof. Attilio Pizzigoni and researcher Giuseppe Ruscica. We are working on several issues such as urban planning or environmental survey, but my main research field is on herringbone technology. This technology, now lost, was used in the Renaissance by the family of Florentine architects: The Sangallo. It allowed to build domes without any false or framework, thus less time-expensive. I joined the Form Finding Lab in October 2018 as VSRC for few months and here I’ m working with Prof. Sigrid Adriaenssens. We are investigating the possibility to apply the herringbone structure concept to shells of different shapes.
