In 2012 Stefano was appointed to restore the historic park of Villa Ada in Trieste, Italy. The neoclassical villa built in 1838 by Nicolò Pertsch for the De Eckel family has undergone a thorough refurbishment since 2004. The Villa is adjacent to the park of Villa Engelmann and has the most ancient species of Gingko biloba in the region Friuli Venezia Giulia. Stefano is currently designing the formal park of the villa and also the garden of the gatehouse. The project will be completed by the end of 2013.
