Technology teacher at Rita Levi Montalcini Comprehensive Institute of Salerno

Technology teacher at the Rita Levi Montalcini Comprehensive Institute of Salerno, but also chemical engineer, university researcher, teachers trainer on teaching methods and new technologies in the school, cartoonist, writer in his spare time, actor, sportsman, chess player, and full-time father. Basically it's what I do to fill my days. Actually everything I am and everything I do it is due to a single principle, CURIOSITY. A lifetime is not enough to learn everything, but it is enough to observe and learn all the new things that cross my path. I like to discover and tell secrets of science and technology in a simple way and STEM activities and Tinkering are the best way to do it. School is a springboard for all of this and my kids are wonderful learning catalysts. Their questions, their desire to discover the world is what fills my life. Here then, at the end of this short, strange bio, what I do for a living. I walk with my son and my students on the roads of the world in search of knowledge.
