- information retrieval / search
- linked (open) data / semantic web
- software design and development
- teaching / mentoring
I like to work on integration and re-use of data and knowledge, especially for greenfield projects or prototypes, in order to focus on change for innovation, for example in the cultural heritage context.

I have a mixed education background: a bachelor's degree in Computer Science Engineering (2003, with a thesis on Music Information Retrieval), and a professional master's course in Sound Engineering (2007, with a thesis on gestural interface to MAX/MSP platform).
From 2003 to 2006, I worked as a consultant and developer at Artificial Intelligence Research at Tor Vergata (ART) group.
From 2007-2016 I worked full-time as a freelancer: teaching programming languages and best practices, mentoring small companies on topics like Information Retrieval and Linked Data, and collaborating as a software engineer, often in the contexts of cultural heritage and public administration (open data publishing, and related).
Since 2016 I'm working at Almawave, mainly focusing on knowledge graphs and linked (open) data.
I'm still open for small consultancies and courses, in case I have some spare time... :-) So please, get in touch if you'd like to have a chat on these topics, or if you want to explore possible collaborations.
I love using graphs in many ways: from knowledge representation, to graph databases (RDF, LPG, etc) & linked open data. I like being involved actively in "civic hacking" projects. I'm also an enthusiast adopter of the Scala language.
I [seriously] love opensource.
