I have a background in physics, but for the past few years I have been working as a freelance consultant for digital typesetting, with a special interest in critical editions. I am also involved in the Italian TeX community: I became a member of GuIT in 2004, in 2006 was among the founders of ArsTeXnica and its first editor in chief. I have been serving as president of GuIT since October 2007.
