Short Biography

I was born in 1978 and grew up in Florence, one of the most beautiful towns in the world. Most people, as they put their eyes on me, think: “Hey, there’s an alien among us!” Well, I often guess they are right: I’m an alien, but not for the reasons they know. The flame of science, research and technology has become alive in my life since I was twelve. A dream was coming out of my heart, so I started to build my road to it. Mmmh… I think this makes me an alien!

In July 1997 I got my high-school qualification in Computer Science and Electronics at ‘Alessandro Volta’ High School in Florence with a score of 53/60. In September 1997 I started my long way to Bachelor’s Degree, interrupted in 2001 for four years and a half, because of the worsening of my visual diseases. Finally I graduated in 2007 with 104/110 and then I got the Master’s Degree in December 2010 with 110/110 cum laude.

My main interests were facing software creation (Assembler 8086, C, C++, C#, Java, PHP, HTML, XML, SQL), as soon as I attended the Computational Vision Course something changed in me: The way Vision lets you see the world, or makes you feel part of the delicate equilibrium of things, the way it lets you go through the geometric mechanism of all things touched by light… All this and many more aspects forced me to expand my idea of Computer Science.
