• In my research, I aim at understanding rural–urban interaction, urbanization, and land use change. Sharing a historicist and morphogenetic vision, I often combine empiricist and humanist approaches. My regional foci are on the central Andes—especially Peru—and the European Alps. More recently, I am also interested in the northern Apennines. Apart from purely academic research, I have a strong interest in environmental planning and local development.
