Manuela Senese completed her professional Architectural Master’s Degree from the University of Bologna, Italy. Her thesis project investigated the reuse and preservation of modern architecture heritage and was awarded the gold medal in Domus international competition for restoration and conservation. Following her professional degree, she pursued her interest in heritage preservation and obtained a Post-Professional Degree in Modern Architecture and Heritage from the University of Québec in Montréal (UQAM).

In parallel, she continued to have academic roles in the Department of Architecture of the University of Bologna, where she focused on courses dealing with historical architectural restoration. Upon her relocation to Montréal, she has worked as an Architectural Intern at the Société de Transport de Montréal and MSDL Architectes, and she continued to collaborate with the École de Design of the UQAM.
