Marcello Ziliani was born in Brescia in 1963 under the sign of Pisces. In 1988 he graduated in architecture from Milan Polytechnic with Achille Castiglioni as his supervisor (and unrivalled teacher). He has dedicated himself mainly to design, developing projects for the furnishing, complementary, lighting, bathroom, office, gift and fancy goods and early childhood sectors, as well as installations, theatre sets, art direction, design coordination, graphics and communication. He pays particular attention to sustainability, human-centred design and agile production. He does not like absolutes and unshakable certainties, he likes to speak softly and above all listen. He believes that any project is, at heart, a desire, a hope of flight.
