I graduated in Architecture at the IUAV of Venice in 1997 with a thesis on History of Architecture on the sixteenth century codex of Giovanni Vincenzo Casale at the National Library of Madrid, followed by Anna Bedon. This first experience allowed me to identify one of my main fields of interest: architectural design, with particular regard to the manuscripts of humanistic age drawings. In 1999, thanks to a MURST funding "Young Researchers Project", I started studying the Destailleur B codex, an unpublished 16th century manuscript preserved at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. The analysis work, which allowed me to extend my explorations to other disciplines such as archeology and the history of art, ended with the publication of the book:“Questo Libro fu d’Andrea Palladio”. Il codice Destailleur B dell’Ermitage, L’«Erma» di Bretschneider, Roma 2015 (with R. Martinis).

During my Doctorate in History of Architecture and Urban Planning at IUAV I developed a strong interest in contemporary architecture, museography and the relationship between the arts; therefore, I chose to analyze Carlo Scarpa's work with the guidance of Marco De Michelis. My thesis, discussed in 2002, was published the following year:Carlo Scarpa. L’architetto e le arti. Gli anni della Biennale di Venezia 1948-1972, Marsilio, Venice 2003. In 2009–2011, on behalf of the MAXXI in Rome, I was also a scientific consultant for the reorganization of the Carlo Scarpa Archive (about 22,000 drawings), conserved at the Center Carlo Scarpa – State Archive of Treviso. I continued to manage Scarpiano's work, but over time my interests extended to Franco Albini, Luigi Moretti, Giulio Minoletti, BBPR, Marco Zanuso and others. I also had the opportunity to collaborate and curate various exhibitions dedicated to them, as well as to hold lectures open to the public to make them known.

My research has also ranged in the field of scenography and theatrical architecture, with particular regard to the Opera Houses, to which the volume is dedicated:Teatri e luoghi per lo spettacolo, Electa, Milano 2008 (with A. Muffato).

I started working in 2005 as a researcher at the University of Udine and since June 2019 I am an associate professor. I teach History of Contemporary Architecture at the Master's Degree in Architecture (2006-) and at the Master of Science in Art History and Heritage Preservation (2016–) and where also teach the course in Museum Practices in the contemporary architecture (2019–). Since 2012 I am a member of the teaching staff of the Ph.D. program in Art History, Film Studies, Media Studies and Music of the University of Udine.

In 2017–2018 I was a FNS post-doc researcher at the Archivio del Moderno of the Academy of Architecture, University of Italian Switzerland – USI, for the project: "Architecture in the Canton Ticino 1945–1980", coordinated by Nicola Navone. I currently work on the project as an external member.

I have lectured both in Italy and abroad, participated in numerous international conferences and the author of publications in international books and magazines.
