Welcome!
I teach in Communication & Digital media topics at the Pontifical Athenæum Regina Apostolorum [Link] and the University of Rome Tor Vergata [Link]. I currently do online research about "Digital clusters" – personal and collective narrations and their correlation with social media. Previously, I founded the hypertextual technical magazine BETA (1996) and the online agency ITNews (1999), wrote popular guides about social network citizenship, and co-organized TEDx ViaDellaConciliazione (2013). I do consulting with LG Studio and am a fan of HTML 5 & open paradigms in CMS/SNS. You can find more in the About and Contact pages. Don't miss out my favorite Quotes!.
