About Me

Programmer. Drummer. Tolkenian. Chocolate-addicted.


I have been studying Computer Science since I was 14. I studied Computer Science at "I.T.I. N. Copernico - Carpeggiani" high school of Ferrara and then got a degree from the University of Ferrara in 2010.
Being first a Java programmer helped me write my thesis (ATT: Automatic Testing Tool) during the MEEO internship and find my first job as a Java Web Developer at CSE (Consorzio Servizi Bancari) S.c.a.r.l. (started on February, 1st 2011).

During my 4 years and a half at CSE I deepened my Java knowledge using Eclipse RCP/SWT, JEE, Spring Framework, Google Web Toolkit (GWT), XML, XSD, JAXB and IBM DB2 technologies.
In November 2015 I started working at MEEO as a Web Developer. Currently I am developing using Python, Django, Bootstrap3/4, HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript&jQuery&manyOtherJSLibrariesThatILove.
Sometimes I do some bash scripting... Sometimes... Obviously, I can manage PostgreSQL databases... And I use a GNU/Linux OS. Yep.

In my programming life, I have also tried other languages, like PHP and RUST, and I am always looking for something new to try... Information Technology is a huge category... What do I want to learn/improve in the future? JS frameworks, PHP frameworks, all-the-web-based-technologies, Android/iOS development, ...

Drummer, Guitar Player and Song-Writer

Music is my first passion (after Information Technology). I have always listened to Music in every moment of my life.

In 2008, I started playing and teaching acoustic guitar to children, and in 2012 I started practising my favourite instrument: the drums.
"Making Music School" has been my music school since 2013 (I started at Gorilla Music School then named Making Music School in 2014) but I started practising at "AMF (Associazione Musicisti di Ferrara)" in 2012.

In October 2015, I joined an Italian Pop-Rock group located in Ferrara named Outburst as a drummer and sometimes as a song-writer. In February 2018, we started working on our first EP.

Tolkenian, Chocolate-addicted & More

Music is not the only passion! I really love reading (specially Tolkien's books) and eating chocolate (...sometimes while reading...)! I do like fantasy and crime novels (sometimes in English), but the book category is not so important. What matters is reading something!
