When I was a child, I had a dream: to create the most beautiful house in the world…
I have had two great good fortunes in my life: to be born in Italy and to travel to many countries. In 1975 my friend Roberto sent me to coordinate my first job in Saudi Arabia and later, in 1977, in Hong Kong: two places that left a deep mark in my life and professional path. I started with buildings, by creating new ones or by renovating old ones, always following the same guideline: harmony, respect for culture and environment with one single goal, beauty. Yet, operating only on the structures was not enough: to give the buildings a soul, I also had to take care of what was inside and around. From here, I paid more and more attention to interior design, furnishing, garden and water landscape, with one conviction: “Luxury and refinement are not made up of ostentation, but of an equilibrium of shapes and preciousness of materials; in one word, elegance”. This is how I created Officina Della Scala, a team that combines common principles that are rooted in the best Italian spirit, in art, creativity and culture of our country, with attention to internationality and openness to different cultures, which joins seriousness and dedication for one’s work with inexhaustible curiosity, the first step towards innovation and continuous research. From the hardest and roughest materials to the softest and most refined ones, we put care and passion to create something that is not just an office, a shop, a hotel or a house but that is a place where you can live well and spend quality time.
