The architectural firm Albera Monti & Associates has its main headquarter in Milan with branches in Rome, Genoa, Bologna and Palermo. The practice, founded by Giovanni Albera and Nicolas Monti in 1985, is comprised of a tight professional team of architects and technicians. The "modus operandi" of the group guarantees that every project is constantly supervised by one of the partners. AMA employs state-of-the-art CAD systems, and has designed new buildings and worked on renovations in Italy, France, Germany, the UK and the United States, in the residential, tertiary, industrial and commercial sectors. In recent years, AMA has acquired specific expertise in the design of integrated architectural projects, in which functional and operational aspects, corporate identity and efficient communication are integrated to form a single design philosophy. Giovanni Albera and Nicolas Monti also boast a prestigious track record as industrial designers. Their work has won several awards and has been widely exhibited at venues such as the Venice Biennale, the Milan Triennale, the Landesmuseum in Dusseldorf and the London Design Museum
They are authors of several books, published in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, England, United States and Japan.
