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 light was like.
I don't know what are the reasons behind this, but the fact is that growing up I became interested on technology and science topics, fascinated by the underlying interconnections between everything around us. Trillions of invisible interconnections between everything, not visible at a first glance yet ruling everything.
I was also very attracted by that little grey box from which branched several cables (at the time), 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.
My first computer was a nice Windows desktop, on which I did many Frankenstein-like experiments. I enjoy experimenting things, I feel kind of a mad scientist. So that first of all I added a transparent plexiglas panel on its side and four or five really loud fans (except the Noctua one, it was unbelievably quiet) with led lights (a lot of them, of course!).
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 to 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 lost the count of how many times I formatted and re-installed the entire system 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 photos in my old website version, where I created an apposite section branded as Food Engineering.
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 catch my attention. At the moment I'm really interested and reading a lot about finance and investments (mainly equities).
I tried to melt these interests in my logo, in fact they are expressed in abstract circular shapes (ouroboros) that interact with each others.
During my free time, along with reading and going to the gym, I enjoy travelling, seeing and feeling new places and different cultures is incredibly inspirational.
