I was born on 9th october 1969 in Pisa, the city of the leaning tower placed right in the heart of Tuscany. In 1988 I finished the high school with the maximum degree (60/60) and in 1993 I graduated with the maximum degree in Informatic Sciences at the University of Pisa. I had my military service as a Navy Officer (1 year and 3 monthes) then I started to work on January 1995 in Unisys.
