The two founding members of Rinova Projects are Conor Mulvenna,
born in Belfast, UK and Debora Passaleva, born in Florence, Italy.

In 1992 both qualified as architects in Sheffield University and
Politecnico di Milano respectively.

They met while working in Berlin in 1995, later they also worked
in Dublin for some years before settling in Milan in 2000.

From that date Debora worked with and still maintains strong
links to the internationally renowned Italian Design guru
Alessandro Mendini, while Conor worked as team leader on a
number of large projects for foreign clients in North Italy.

One of these projects was "Castelfalfi" in Tuscany, the biggest
tourist destination project in Italy, during which Conor felt
particularly enamoured with old buildings and the rich
vernacular architectural language of the different regions in Italy.

Increasingly Conor began working on restoration of residential
buildings in north Italy often for English speaking clients.

As a natural development of Conor "finding" suitable properties to
refurbish for prospective buyers and developers, Rinova Projects has
continued to carry out more frequent Property Searches.
