From 2002-2003 to 2005-2006 he is professor of the courses of Drawing within various Laboratories of drawing in the Design Faculty of the Polytechnic of Milan. From 2003-2004 to 2005-2006 he is professor of the course of Design of the Architecture in the Architecture Degree at the University of Parma. Since 2006 he is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Parma, where he teaches courses of Design, Descriptive Geometry and Architecture Design in the Science of Architecture Degree and Architecture Degree. First as a graduate visitor, then as a PhD student, he participated in the research activities both individually and in collaboration with teachers holders of courses of Drawing and Design Building of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Parma. The activities of scientific research has developed mainly in the fields of Design and architectural Survey. The focus is particularly based on research topics related to methods of representation. In this sense the in-depth studies have focused on Design, applications of Descriptive Geometry, automatic techniques of representation and graphical and digital modeling. Particular importance was given to the research related to the use of computer resources for graphic restitution both the project of architecture as well as the survey of historical monumental building. At the same time he also dealt with the creation of database for the computerized management of data in the field of construction. Since 1995 he participates in the national researches in the field of representation. From the beginning of the same year he has begun an almost continuous activity in surveying historical architecture, both on the national territory and abroad. The carried out experiences have enabled to test the integration between the different methods of survey and to assume proficiency within the areas of topographic survey, photogrammetry and laser-scanner 3D. In order to submit the results of the experiences conducted, he has published articles in national magazines and books, as well as in acts of national and international conferences on the subjects of Descriptive Geometry, Survey, project design, but especially Survey and Design of the historical architecture. First as a PhD student, then as a Assistant Professor, he is a member of the research group coordinated by Prof. Paolo Giandebiaggi at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Architecture, University of Parma, which operates on the themes of computer and multimedia applications, as well as on the themes of the Design and the Survey of the architecture and the city.
