Luca is interested in the links between health, wellbeing and the built environment at all scales and in very different socio-economic and geographical contexts. His doctoral research is on urban design and the ageing population. It focuses, in particular, on how the public realm and public urban spaces can be considered as salutogenic and supportive for healthy ageing policies and practices.

He is editor of the Spanish blog, Colectivo Lazareto.
