Studio Torresi at Fermo in central eastern Italy first began as an idea from Gino Torresi, who in 1952 established a design and consultancy firm, providing support to building administrators, companies and individuals.
The aim of Studio Torresi is to provide both consultancy and advice, focussing on research, the quality of the work and respect for the environment. Remaining unchanged to this day, this aim still represents Studio Torresi’s core values.
The steady growth in our activities and requests for collaboration from international study and research centres has led to highly prestigious results and a constant development in the quality and innovation of our projects.
Having worked on various projects around the world, the team at Studio Torresi have gained considerable experience and competence in the areas of restoration as well as rural, environmental and urban planning, eco-sustainable planning of historic centres, seismic risk assessment and general risk planning, as well as damage assessment.
Since the 1980s, the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has allowed Studio Torresi to develop state-of-the-art urban plans, and thanks to our research activities, we are able to assess mitigation of environmental and anthropogenic risks and offer consultancy for tenders (HORIZON, INTERREG, CARDS, IPA, SEE, LIFE +. etc.), including the `Practical Guide to contract procedures` (PRAG) for activities outside the EEC.
We have also participated in various international conferences and published numerous articles on issues affecting the urban planning and restoration sectors.
