Almost every time I meet someone for working purposes or for fun, I spend five-ten minutes googling his name.
It is like a way to have a second point of view of the person I'm dealing with!
When I decided to start with this personal site, I had the same aim: to give to everyone like a movie trailer of myself, my interests and my projects, plus share, day after day, some experiences of my life.
Now it is time to introduce myself: I was born in Milan, Italy in 1984; when I was young, with my family we moved to Varese, a small town nearby were I grew up. My childhood dream was to be an astronaut (like 80% of the boys...), after there was the real life and today I'm a really happy aerospace engineer!!
Hindsight I understood how much the engineering fits with my personality: since I was young my main play was to disassemble my toys, try to understand how they worked and reassemble them improving the features; before with toys, then with bicycles and then with motorbikes. Now I play with something bigger and more expencive, but they are always toys for me...
Among many others, three experiences have been important for my growing:
Company's internship: At the end of my bachelor degree, I joined MvAgusta (a motor bike company) for four months. There I had the chance to understand the meaning of working in a company, the challenge of the relations with collegues and the satisfaction of a goal achieved by a team work. Most important, I understood that the work for which I studied was the one that I liked!
Students' association: more or less along all my university years, I led the ASVP, among the biggest student association of my town. With the elected board, we organized policy debates, conferences, events and of course, parties! It was simply awesome!! Here I learned how much difficult is to motivate someone (without the help of the money) and how much satisfying is to achieve this goal!
Educator's time: the story is long and the idea is that I've always felt pretty lucky for all that I have. I started to volunteer when I was nineteen, I helped with the homework the guys of a penal community (Comunità "Il Sorriso" Onlus). Then one thing leads to another and in January 2010 I started to work there as educator part-time till the end of 2012. The best and more difficult experience ever!!
If you need more formal info about me, at the bottom of this page there is my CV.
