About - Luciano Giustini (en)


To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous.

As a computer engineer, roman* but european as culture, I developed a passion for telematics and computer science since 1992 - an Internet era ago.

In 1996 I founded BETA, one of the very first hypertextual technical magazines in Italy that has been an important experience, involving me also in the ideation of IT News and other italian websites developed with leading technical partners, among with a professional growth and the honour and privilege of knowing protagonists of the italian Internet.

In 1998 I entered in the Nice S.r.l. company focused on the ICT, within I already collaborated, as project manager for the Internet business unit.

In 2007 I entered in Telecom Italia S.p.A. (the main italian telecommunication company) Wireline - Technology & Operations I.T. - as specialized consultant in the OSS Engineering ambit.

In 2010 I worked as a Web designer & developer in Teamcode, following the project of a computer system for the remote control of wireless purchases while on the beach (with a ring).

In 2011 I took a sabbatical year, and lately started teaching Programming in a professional institute; whereupon I was called to teach at the fledgling Master in Communication and New Media at the Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in two courses about digital media and the Internet. This experience was truly challenging and made me refocusing my professional activity into teaching.

In 2012 I've been co-opted as technology visionary organizing TEDx ViaDellaConciliazione about Religious Freedom, a TEDx event and a great international opportunity as well as a professional challenge. The event was held in April 19, 2013 at the Auditorium della Conciliazione (Vatican State belonging).

In 2013 I served as consultant for european Horizon 2020 programme, in the S3 initiative (Smart Specialization Strategies), inforegional Focus group for Lazio Region for research and innovation.

In 2016 I postgraduated at the University of Tor Vergata in Information and Communication Science (LM-19), meantime continuing to teach and work in my research fields (see Didactic).

In 2017 I started teaching at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, faculty of Literature and Philosophy, in the Laboratory for multimedia writing. The course identifies the digital content processes, focusing on critical ability and source selection, especially on social media. At the same time I started teaching as assistant in the Sociology of Cultural Communication course at University of Tor Vergata.
In 2018 I've been teaching at the Laboratory in Communication and Digital media (still at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, faculty of Literature and Philosophy), in 2019 the fledgling Models and methods of Digital Communication course.

I am Honorary Fellow in the Scientific Field of Sociology of Cultural and Communication Processes (IT-SSD: SPS/08).

I'm a fan of HTML 5, paradigm-shift models and Open access (scientific and technical) journals. I both appreciate Jaron Lanier critics and Harper Reed visions.
I keep a website of my professional and consulting activities in LG Studio (where you'll probably find a work in progress...).

In case of extreme curiosity, can read more about me also in a old-fashioned bio, a classic curriculum, or Linkedin. Some of my publications are listed on Academia.edu too.

The english blog is born on June 2004, following the italian one that's two years earlier.
