Valerio Cozzi

I am a landscape designer. After graduating in Architecture at Politecnico di Milano, I earned the Master in Design and Conservation of the Garden and the Landscape ruled by the same Athenaeum in partnership with the Fondazione Minoprio. I am Member of the Milan Board of Architects since 1999 and of the Italian Association of Landscape Architecture (AIAPP) since 2002. Working as designer, project manager and works supervisor for AG&P from 1999 to 2012 allowed me to grow professional experience in the landscape design field at all scales from private gardens to city masterplans. Determined to match people and trees’ needs in each project, I entered the Italian Society of Arboriculture (SIA) and the International Association of Arboriculture (ISA) in 2014 and keep experimenting, studying and writing on the topic.

Committed to develop my landscape architectural career keeping in contact with research and education, I am creator, coordinator and tutor of experience-lead and technical courses about garden and landscape design at Civica Scuola Arte & Messaggio in Milan and at Fondazione Edmund Mach in Trento.

I am also President of the Landscape Committee of the Metropolitan City Milan and appointed environmental advisor of the Building Commission of the Municipalities of San Giorgio su Legnano and Busto Garolfo. Because I am convinced that landscape culture is a value to share.
