Bio

Her Story

Maddalena d’Alfonso is an architect, essayist, and researcher. Qualified Associate Professor in 2017, she held courses at IADE in Portugal and Politecnico di Milano, among many other academic organizations. Her ability to combine research with museographic culture has been applied to curate and design cultural exhibitions and projects.

The architect’s innovative method of interdisciplinary investigation stems from the interest in the theoretical and visual analysis of architecture, art, photography, and landscape, connected both to history and present-day architectural issues. She conceived cultural projects for the Fundação Gulbenkian-Portugal, the Fundação Iberê Camargo-Brazil, the MIT Museum in Cambridge-USA, Triennale di Milano and Politecnico di Milano-Italy. She has been a member of DASTU-Department of Architecture and Urban Studies of Milan and founded Md’A Design Agency where they provide content curation, creative solutions, and direction to build a design virtue based on sustainable innovative ideas.

d’Alfonso’s publications include Two Museums by Àlvaro Siza-Electa, 2009; De Chirico. O sentiment from Arquitetura-Camargo, 2011; How space transforms art | How Art transforms space-Silvana, 2016 and the book Warm Modernity-Silvana Editoriale 2016, which has received RED DOT award.

During her professional years, she has accomplished many awards for her vision and successful outcomes, including the Medal of high representation from the Presidency of the Italian Republic for the exhibition “The landscape of rights. Photographing the Italian Constitution” - designed and curated by her, 2017 for Comune di Milano.

When you love what you do, life brings you more opportunities. Her career path crossed a very interesting road which made her who she is today.
