Personal info

I was born in 1989 in Venice, Italy.
Since then unfortunately i lived on the mainland (terraferma) and not in the historical city center. :(

My home town.

Career + Crunchlab

I started as a sysadmin at various local companies and then as a software developer (C/C++ and "web stuff").
5 years ago i founded Crunchlab with some friends, at that time Crunchlab was just an hackerspace but then 3 years ago we adopted the FabLab Charter and bought all the required FabLab machines.
Running Crunchlab together with Sebastiano is my actual job nowadays.
Crunchlab is San DonĂ  di Piave (Metropolitan Venice Area).

Crunchlab: entrance.

Other interests

Aviation + rocketry + other unusual means of transport (my first project @ Crunchlab was a model airship: fail).
The real list is a bit too long for this page but if something is engineering or science related it's probably interesting to me.


I studied electronics and computer science at local high school.

That's me

Why photos? :)
