Okay, I want to discover more.
My adventure began in Como (Italy) the nineteenth day of January, where for the first time I felt how seeing the light was like.
I still don't know what the exact reasons behind this are, but the fact is that while growing up I got very interested about technology and scientific topics, fascinated by the underlying interconnections between everything around us. Trillions of interconnections per second, not visible at a first glance, yet ruling the whole universe.
I was thus attracted by that little grey box from which branched several cables, also called computer. I was interested on how it could be so useful in almost every field: from math to art, from games to business, able to create virtual realities and forecasts ruled by tireless algorithms.
So came my first computer: a nice Windows desktop, on which I tried many Frankenstein-like experiments. I enjoyed experimenting things, I felt like a mad scientist, and that feeling hasn't faded since then. So that first of all I added a transparent plexiglas panel on its side and four (or maybe five) really loud fans (except for the Noctua one, it was unbelievably quiet) along with colorful led lights, a lot of them.
I installed the Snow Leopard version, maybe one of the best Mac OS version ever. I remember that I spent almost the entire summertime in order to make it work properly, trying to enable that damn Kext to get the Graphic Acceleration (QE/CI - Quartz Extreme / Core Image) on my GPU (an ATI HD5770). I became during that time one of the most active users on the Hackintosh forum. I lost the count of how many times I formatted and re-installed the entire system(s) from scratch, and unfortunately it was a really boring and time-consuming process.
Back to me, my childhood flowed slowly between friends, cartoons, books, games and snacks, first with the background of Oltrona, then of Colverde, both in northern Italy. As for the school, I decided to continue on the wave of my interests, studying at I.T.I.S. Magistri Cumacini, a technical public school with a very strong path on Information Technology (main subjects: Software Engineering, Systems Architecture and Telecommunications).
During my studies, with the desire to turn my gaze to something new and feed my mind, grew up inside me many other interests. For example, on the success wave and traction of MasterChef, I decided to experiment some weird things with food (see photos below). You can find more weird photos in my old website version, where I created an apposite section branded as Food Engineering. (Breaking news: actually I recreated that weird section in this website as well, and it looks great! Check it out here!)
I have many different interests, from Philosophy to Science, from Psychology to Finance. Basically everything that can help me on wrapping my mind around our weird reality catches my attention. At the moment I'm really interested and reading a lot about finance and investments (mainly equities and strategies). I tried to melt down those interests in my logo, where they are expressed in abstract circular shapes (ouroboros) that interact with each other.
During my free time, along with reading and hitting the gym, I enjoy travelling: seeing and feeling new places and different cultures is incredibly inspirational.
