First of all let
me present myself. I was born in Florence the 23rd of January of 1961. I've
spent most of my life in Florence till October 1995 when my family and I
moved to Pontassieve a small city near Florence. Here I am when I was 4
Physics at the University of Florence and in particular at the Arcetri
Astrophysical Observatory, which is the Florence Observatory, were I
specialized in Astrophysics. I achieved my University degree in 1986 and
then I left for the military service.
Here I am in my
office at the Anti-Aircraft Artillery HQ. During that period I had
opportunity to specialize on the most powerful computers! (Please note the
original IBM XT, a museum piece even in 1987). Anyway I had the opportunity
to work at the creation of electronic slides to be presented at briefings
and this was quite an interesting job
finished my service and our officers gave us a beautiful leave ceremony. I
finished military service in August and in December I was already working
at the Observatory.
I have many
interests. I like very much music, expecially early music, which I perform
on the lute and as a tenor. I like very much
architecture, music, painting, literature of the past, expecially from
Middle Ages till 18th century. This I admit is my biggest contradiction, I
would like to have been born in the Renaissance Florence but I love
technology and I am myself a technician! I like very much reading books but
on the other hand I don't like sports with an exception for swimming. For
me mens sana in corpore sano is nonsense. To know more about my

I like travels a
lot. I was in most European coutries during my summer holidays and in a few
US towns for work, but I never seen a place so beautiful like Sardinia.
