Alessandro Poli was born in 1941 in Fiesole, Italy. He studied architecture at the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Florence with Leonardo Savioli, and obtained a Master of Architecture degree in 1970. From 1970 to 1972 he was part of the Italian radical architecture group Superstudio (with Adolfo Natalini, Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, Roberto Magris, Gian Piero Frassinelli, and Alessandro Magris) and continued to collaborate with the group on projects through the 1970s. In 1972 he participated with Superstudio in the exhibition Italy: The New Domestic Landscape at MoMA. From 1973 to 1982 he taught at the Faculty of Architecture in Florence, focusing on the research for Cultura materiale extraurbana, a project that was presented at the 38th Venice Biennale (1978) with Superstudio. Poli started his own architecture practice in 1973 and founded the firm Poli Sgaravatti in the 1980s with partners Mariella Sgaravatti and Irene Bartolozzi. Poli’s later research and design interests include exhibition design and contemporary art jewelry.
