Being an architect that specialised in lighting, Domenico likes to create “lighting for living”. This means enhancing the visual characteristics of the built form (spaces, objects, architecture and cities) accentuating their beauty and function for the people that will appreciate and use them as part of their habitat.

Domenico enjoys being in contact with the creators (artists, architects, designers, planners) to define ideas which become transformed in practical and sustainable lighting solutions. The whole process, from the first sketch to the light “switch on”, is always a challenging pleasure.

More than an artistic expression, lighting for Domenico is an indispensable design item that will affect our senses, our actions and our lifestyle. “Better lighting is always better quality of life”
