Paolo Villa

Garden and Landscape Architect

(1958 – 2019)
Born in Milan in 1958, Paolo Villa was one of the most important architects working in the field of the design of the garden and the contemporary landscape in Italy. In 1986 he founded the studio AG&P greenscape with Emanuele Bortolotti, in partnership with whom he carried out his professional activity for over thirty years in Italy and abroad.
In addition to design at various scales, he devoted himself to teaching at the faculties of architecture in Milan and Genoa, the Accademia di Brera in Milan and the Agricultural School of Monza Park, ISAD. As well as publishing a number of books and articles, he served as national chairman of the Italian Association of Landscape Architecture (AIAPP) and edited the magazine Architettura del Paesaggio, contributing with great enthusiasm to the Italian debate over the subject of landscape.
