About me

IT addicted since I was young, I have a Technical Institute Diploma as Computer Specialist, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science at the University of Bologna. I’m a skilled programmer (java, C, bash, php, …) who enjoys solving problems and challenges. I have worked as SEO, programmer, web developer (WordPress customisations, web services, front-end and back-end development), software engineer and system administrator (Amazon Web services mostly and any shared hosting or VPS). As SEO I have developed most of my work experience; I’m an analytical person and I always focus on results. Social media marketing, lead generation, web marketing strategies are only few of the expertise I have studied during the last years and of course all my IT preparation has helped me a lot to see things way better than from the economic marketing point of view. I know what, from a mathematical point of view (stationary distribution), google algorithm wants to achieve, what is a CURL request, how HTTP headers are send/received and how an Apache/NGINX server works, just an essential knowledge if someone wants to work as SEO. I can also coordinate teams, develop in agile programming environment and work remotely.

Experience

Works

SEO / SEM, IT Specialist Consultant at RTR srl - Sports Marketing

August 2011 – Present
I started the experience in RTR as a SEO/SEM, analysing the current status of the infrastructure and positioned the website so as to study and build a solid strategy to lead the company (with an analogical approach) on gathering new clients (call center) to a totally inbound way of getting new clients. We have grown contacts and request more than 200%, just thanks to website pages and search engine presence. After a lot of SEO, I studied good SEM strategies to promote RTR content and grow popularity of all the digital properties. The results were really amazing and we have reached one of the best fan base of a marketing agency in Italy.
When RTR got bigger in terms of page rank, domain authority and organic views, I made a second website to focus RTR business not only in Italy, but in UK too, with a rtrsports.co.uk website localised in London. Activities of Link Building, Link Popularity, Content production, UI design studies, A/B tests and rebuilding all the infrastructure on Amazon Web Services (migration made by myself) were only the basic activities I did. I used famous analytical tools such as Ahref, MozPro, GoogleAnalytics, GWT to achieve all the knowledge from an analytical aspect and almost coded all the upgrades by myself too.
I even used a lot of Marketing campaign tools, but mostly Google Adwords.
As DEM platform I’m skilled on CampaignMonitor.
Now I have an activity calendar with tasks I have to do day by day and I am always searching for improvement in organic views, win over competitors and convert most of the users who find us in clients.

MikonOS: Minimal microkernel for MIPS architecture

December 2006 – December 2007
Me and some colleague from university developed a complete microkernel OS running on MIPS architecture, for academic purposes.
The MIKONOS Operating System (OS) described below is inspired to other experiences of Kaya OS, AMIKE OS and AMIKaya OS projects. All of them are descending (not directly) from the THE OS outlined by E. Dijkstra. In his papers he described an OS divided into six layers. Each layer provides an abstraction layer to the i+1 layer. Kaya derives from
the past experiences of the TINA OS and MPS, a rework of the HOCA OS and CHIP. The AMIKE and AMIKaya specifications introduced microkernel operating systems, based on the message passing facility. MIKONOS will be yet another microkernel operating system, based this time on an unusual variant of message passing inspired by Toth’s primitives and the QnixOS.
