Graduated at Politecnico Milano, he wins a competition for the interiors of Musée d’Orsay and, established in Paris, he works on the restoration of the Museum of Modern Art at the Centre Pompidou first, the restoration of the new French School at Louvre’s Cour Carrée later and also on the refurbishment of Nantes’ inner town. Since 1996, he has been working and living in Milan, where he opens the Studio Italo Rota. The projects of the practice change according to the subject, the scale and the typology – from a museum to a church, from a casino to a conference hall or an urban intervention – while showing a global approach due to a high expertise in exhibitions, events and temporary structures. Studio Rota means richness of forms, colours and materials. The peculiar use of light and lines give a sense of multidimensional, while piercing spaces and movements, that makes interiors and objects very creative and intense. Among his several projects, the refurbishment of the iron and steel complex in Dolvi and the Lord Hanuman Hindu temple in India, the stunning Maisons Cavalli in Milan and Dubai and the Wine, Kuwait and Vietnam Pavilions at the Expo Milan 2015.
