    I’m an italian architect. I’m very interested in sustainable, traditional and self-build construction, as I could discover also travelling in Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, Armenia and so on while I was living in Turkey, so after the graduation I travelled to India and I worked there, in Auroville (Tamil Nadu) for the Auroville Green Practices, in the bamboo center. Now I have the chance to use a scholarship from my region to study abroad for some months. Unfortunately the deadline will be in a few days. Beside of course the need to get admitted, I would need now to propose the option of your master to have sent back to me signed on time (july, 5th!!) these things I need to apply for my scholarship!!

    an estimate budget because even if I can read it on the web site but I need an official paper because the only internet page advice is not enough to give to the ! (MOST IMPORTANT!)

    I attach you the papers explaining the program also!

    Thanks again a lot for your attention!!
