Stefano graduated from the University of Florence with a degree in Landscape Architecture. After moving to London he continued his studies with an MA at the University of Greenwich.
Inspired by a passion for plants, he went on to take a horticultural internship at Kew Gardens. During this time he also had placements at Land Use Consultants (LUC) and at Gillespies. Here he was involved in some of the most prestigious landscape projects in central London, such as the concept design of the Crossrail Park at Canary Wharf in collaboration with Norman Foster, the residential development of Bankside alongside Rogers Stirk and Harbour, and the master plan for London Zoo in Regent’s Park.
In 2010 Stefano joined Arne Maynard’s garden design studio and worked on a wide range of high-spec private gardens in the UK, the USA and the Middle East.
