Over the last three years, after about thirty years of work devoted entirely to architecture, he has also begun to take care of the history of the Baglietto shipyards that belonged to the family until 1983. Thus the idea of ​​an exhibition that could be re-established in different places and contexts.

"Organizing the exhibition gave me the opportunity to do a huge job of research and historical cataloging of images and stories of the shipyard of which I had only a vague perception, originated from family stories. I rediscovered the incredible amount of projects realized as the result of the irreducible search for technological evolution and the constant desire for experimentation that has always characterized the making of my family ».
