His scientific interests in the fields of spatial planning and urban design refer to an approach aimed at giving cultural coherence and operational continuity between the fields of research and education on the themes of the city and the territory, with a special focus on two main areas:

  • The relationship between urban planning, design and management in the perspective of sustainability;
  • The interpretation of mobility systems as "public spaces", playing a major role in structuring contemporary territories.

On these topics he has written essays, articles and books, joined national and international conferences, lectured in post lauream and master courses for professionals and public administrators, provided expert help in participatory processes, coordinated seminars and conducted researches.
