Technical Student

CERN, Geneva, Switzerland

I was selected as a CERN Openlab Student with a full time contract for the summer.In this work I’ve learned to use StackStorm, open-source automation platform provided by Extreme Networks, by deploying the platform and investigating its features and, once familiar with the software, I have expanded the current automation pack for the IDS (Intrusion Detection System) system to support multiple network vendors to enable dynamic modifications to traffic steering rules.

Full-Stack Developer


Built a website from scratch with a newsletter service. I consider this work as a full-stack job because the site's images are updated by admin in the cloud and there's a big backend to manage emails, pictures updated by users, email confirmation etc. The website's backend is fully written with Nodejs and the front-end is pure Bootstrap, CSS3 and HTML5. The site is currently available here.

LaLaPark - App di interscambio parcheggi

Progetto Universitario per il laboratorio di progettazione software e sicurezza informatica. Università Sapienza di Roma, Anno Accademico 2016/2017. Il progetto prevedeva lo sviluppo di un'applicazione per l'interscambio dei parcheggi. Gli utenti possono cercare un parcheggio (utilizzando filtri come distanza, tipologia della macchina da parcheggiare e tipologia di parcheggio richiesto) o liberarne uno guadagnando punti che permettono di cercare ulteriori parcheggi. Personalmente mi sono occupato della parte Android, sviluppando la UX che tramite le API di servizio permettevano all'utente di prenotare un parcheggio disponibile, liberare un parcheggio, guadagnare stelle e comunicare con gli altri utenti. Il progetto può essere visionato qui.

Apart from being a developer, I enjoy most of my time playing PC games and basketball and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the development world, in particular the part of building solutions for entrepreneurs.

I also organized a library in the oratory, called Mamre Giovani, of my church (Parrocchia Sanfrumenzio at Prati Fiscali”). The main goal of the library is culture spreading and giving a place where everyone can study or read a book, probably the best vehicle of culture and history since his creation. In our library, called BiblioMamreGiovani, every book we’ve collected was given for free by caretakers of our parish and every money donation was used just and only for buying new libraries and books. Meanwhile the library management I’ve assumed the role of coordinator of the whole structure. So I was called to organize work for a team larger 15 guys and during this experience, I’ve learned the difficulties of team-working and the great opportunities to work with good companions. Also inside this project I’ve deployed an automated client-server system to track when the library is opened or not online.
