Italian-born Luigi Rosselli first travelled to Australia to work on the new Parliament House in Canberra. He established his own practice in Sydney in 1985 and since then, his signature European-inspired architecture can be seen all around Australia, most recently in his design for Stefano Manfredi’s BALLA Restaurant at The Star.
