I was born in a small village in the centre-south of Italy. As a child I was fascinated by the workers building houses nearby, so I decided that I would have been a bricklayer. Life redefines perspectives and change paths, so when I discovered my love for Science, Organic Chemistry was for me the natural choice. If I build something, both scientifically and from a human point of view, I have the impression that I fullfilled that creative desire.
