I am honoured to have been chosen as the winner of this scholarship. I had the opportunity to exchange a few thoughts with Mr Giannino Gottardi, president of the Foundation, who gifted me wise reflections together with the sweet memory of Marco and Gloria, their dreams and their determination. Two young people who represent all of us, dealing with our studies and with endless enthusiasm towards the future. The themes highlighted by the scholarship, such as restoration, safety and architecture in general, are typical of my education as an architect, which mostly coincides with the education of Marco and Gloria. The determination and dreams of these two young people will be kept alive by the future architecture students and by the efforts of Giannino, Daniela and the entire Foundation, in order to always transmit the courage of taking a chance without expecting anything for granted.
