Welcome to my personal home page.
Born in Italy and living in Australia since 2001, I am a world traveler, perennial expat, internet's early adopter, amateur investigator of genetic mutations (or, according to my wife, mild hypochondriac), Nutrigenomics follower, enthusiast TEDster and, above all, a strong believer and advocate of studying and working abroad.
Despite my gluten sensitivity, I wish it was just a myth or another marketing fad, I love Roman-style wood-fired pizza and cornetti, Italian sweet croissants.
I like all sorts of animals and have a passion for highly intelligent and clownish sulphur-crested cockatoos.
My favourite celebrities are not overpaid sports personalities, actors, rockstars or average Joe and Jane reality show participants but all those visionary and open-minded people who, often away from the spotlight, innovate and research for finding solutions to big problems.
I am a natural skeptic and I believe that the only thing that can stop hair from falling is the floor. If I had a time machine I would love to meet Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein above all.
Last but not least I am a very proud father of two sweet little girls who, hopefully, will contribute to change the world for the better one day.
