I was born in Milano where I completed my studies at the local Universita' degli Studi with a degree in Physics, defending a thesis on Hadronic Interactions at the Experiment 80 at the Serpukhov accelerator in Russia, obtaining highest score and Laude. After graduation, I joned the Milano group at that time engaged in the NA1 experiment at CERN, were I contributed to the development of the Silicon Active target, a pioneering solid state detector, father of the modern microstrip and pixel detectors, now in worldwide use in experimental particle physics. In 1982 I began an exciting adventure at Fermilab, contributing to the design and construction of the E867 photoproduction experiment at the Tevatron.
Since 2004 I'm a member of the CMS Experiment, where I've been responsible for the Forward Pixel Detector commissioning test-stand software. Recently I've been responsible for the database interface software of the whole Pixel Detector.
