After completing his architectural studies at the Polytechnic University of Milan and at the Pomona Polytechnic University in Los Angeles in 1994, Davide started his career in Indonesia. At the age of just 25, he gained international recognition for the design of PSP bank headquarters - one of the tallest skyscrapers in Jakarta.
In 1998 he moved to London and joined Design International. Embracing the company’s ethos to tailor unique, commercially viable projects, Davide has pushed the design boundaries in every project undertaken. He rose rapidly within the company, becoming a Partner in 2002 and Chief Executive Officer in 2006.
Committed to constantly setting new benchmark designs that are both financially sustainable and aesthetically strong, Davide has been Project Principal on many ground-breaking developments, including Odysseum in Montpellier (2009), Morocco Mall in Casablanca (2011), Nave de Vero in Marghera (2014), Il Centro in Arese (2016). These, and many other Design International projects have been recipients of some of the most coveted industry Awards, including ICSC, Mapic, Mipim, RLI, a Guinness World Records™ and over 30 other International Property Awards across four continents.
Davide retains a hands-on, listening approach, working closely with colleagues and guiding teams to deliver projects that are meticulously crafted and tell their own unique story. Under his leadership, Design International has grown into a globally-recognised practice.
