My name is Timur Kadyrov. I'm from the city of Kazan in Russia.
Since 2008 I have actively participated in Florence Festivals Degree and Profession.
In 2010 I graduated with honors from the Architectural Faculty of Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering. In 2011 I presented my diploma project "The concept of urban development of the Kazanka river's bank within the boundaries of the Kazan city." The Festival Jury appreciated my work and awarded me a medal on behalf of the President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano. This victory opened new opportunities for me.
It helped me to enroll in the most prestigious architectural University in Italy: Politecnico di Milano.
However the main thing - is the experience and communication that I got at the international level with colleagues and well-known specialists from all over the world. For this I am very grateful to the Foundation Romualdo Del Bianco® and everyone who helped me."
