I was born on the Adriatic seaside of Italy, February 22, 1976, in a town called "Fano" (derived from the ancient Roman Latin name "Fanum Fortunae", that means "Temple of Fortune").
I've always been fond of science, particularly in physic, astronomy and computer science: in fact I degreed in Computer Science in Turin University April 9, 2001.
I served my Country in the Italian Army, Signal Corp, as an Officer for 10 years.
In september 2006 I joined the Italian Army Reserve, rank Captain.
From October 2006 to November 2009 I worked as Sales Manager at Hi-Net Group, an Italian System Integrator and Application Provider.
From November 2009 to February 2013 I worked as Operation Manager at Flying Work, a flight school.
Nowdays I'm acting as Operation Manager at Fano Airport.
My favourite sport is Muay Thai and my preferred artistic activities are writing, painting and photography.
I'm a Star Trek ('Ex astris scientia') and Bruce Springsteen fan too!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Every one of us has to contribute to human progress, in the interest of all human kind!
Running SETI@home I'm just trying to do my very little part - in the same way I served my Country to do my part.
In my opinion, the aim is to find an answer to the question Enrico Fermi asked to his colleagues Edward Teller and Herbert York in the mess hall of Los Alamos during the summer of 1950: 'If Universe swarms of aliens, where are all they?' (Known from then on as the Enrico Fermi's paradox).
