I'm born in Uznach, Switzerland, in june 11, 1967, and I lived my early years at Rapperswil, a graceful town on lake Zurich. My parents are sicilian and I lived in Ispica, Sicily, since 1973 to 1987 when I won a place of scholarship at the Scuola Normale Superiore at Pisa, Tuscany, for Mathematics. I graduated at the University of Pisa in 1993. In july 1993 I began my military service in the Bersaglieri Army at Trapani, near Erice, Sicily. In 1994 I begun the Doctoral School of the University of Pisa, Department of Mathematics, which I finished in 1998. At present I am a visitor at the IMA (Institut de Mathématiques) of the University of Lausanne.

    I also have a VNA Vespa (1958): This Vespa has been used by me in Sicily since 1982, and now it is in Pisa, for daily use and for some little holidays in Tuscany (S. Gimignano, Volterra, Elba Island) and Liguria (Cinque Terre).

    Here you can found a letter of mines published on "Il Manifesto" of the 6th november 1997. It speaks about the "Ponte sullo stretto".
