At the heart of my work is the relationship between man, in his action, and nature. Landscape as a key element of individual and social well-being should be safeguarded, planned, organized and managed in accordance with rights and responsibilities for everyone. The reckless use of land and its resources for years perpetrated by man compromised, perhaps irreversibly, those biological and chemical processes that support life on earth. My research moves from the urgent need to reflect on the significance of the interaction between man and the environment, not only in search of new sustainable technologies to solve development problems resulting from a resource-hunger, but rather to formulate a new concept of life style.
