Considering himself an explorer and even an adventurer, his quests have been widely ranged, starting with the basic existential questions: “What is life all about? Who are we? Why are we here? What gives meaning and purpose to our experiences?” Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” has been tested in Pierluigi’s personal and professional life when he came to America following an interest he had in Frank Lloyd Wright’s so-called “Organic Architecture” and, in general, in the Modern Movement. But, eventually, he grew out of them. “A strong philosophy or design approach tends to become limiting and somewhat stifle down the line when all the parameters seem to be changing,” asserts the renowned architect. As an explorer, he likes to deal with each situation from within and see where it may lead him. Selecting a shade becomes a direct result of this process. The colors he loves the most are the deep pastel colors of Michelangelo’s combinations like blue and terra cotta, yellow ochre and lavender, aqua marine and green, light peach and gray.

The American culture gave Pierluigi the unique opportunity for personal and intellectual freedom, the possibility of looking at new situations and ideas in fresh and limitless ways. This mental attitude, combined with the intricate heritage of his Italian DNA, has proven to be an exquisite concoction. Brave, ingenious, disciplined, and still holding on to a thick Italian accent and Italian ways, due to the many Italian companies he has worked for on a daily basis, he is a proud American citizen and maintains a strong foothold in each continent. As a result of his professional standing and involvement with the high-end fashion industry, in 2013, he was knighted by Italian President Giorgio Napoletano with the prestigious title “Cavaliere della Repubblica Italiana.”

The love for style has found deep roots in the iconic residences he designed on the West Coast, in areas such as: Bel-Air, Hollywood, Palm Desert, Pasadena, Beverly Hills, and Laguna Beach. Specialized also in retail design and implementation of retail projects, Pierluigi has worked in association with the concept designers of some of the most prestigious retail brands such as Bally, Rolex, Versace, MaxMara, Brioni, Dolce & Gabbana, LaPerla and Moncler. Through the years he has realized many flagship stores in the most exclusive destinations across the US such as Rodeo Drive, Madison Ave, Bal Harbour, Kalakawa Ave.
