Born in La Spezia (Italy) in 1960, Duccio Malagamba studied architecture in Genoa and then moved to Barcelona (Spain) to work as an architect. In 1989 he won a scholarship granted by the “CNR” (Italian National Research Centre), for a research on Spanish Contemporary Architecture. To carry out this study he took up his youthful interest in photography. As a result of this research he received several commissions by renowned Spanish architectural firms, after which, in 1991, he decided to devote himself entirely to architectural photography. In these 23 years of professional experience in architectural photography Duccio has participated in several exhibitions, lectures, and juries. He collaborates with prestigious architects like Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron, Rafael Moneo, EMBT, and Coop-Himmelb(l)au, among many others. His photographs are featured in major specialized magazines and publishing houses worldwide.
