The full story
I’m a full-stack web developer. After working for years for different web agencies now I’m a freelance. I enjoy creating digital products from the ground up, by creating designs, writing code, and coordinating teams.
In 2022 I started doing project management, marketing, and strategy in order to create digital products from the ground up.
My driving lights are UX and performance. The applications I deliver must be usable and run fast.
Here is a list of the four technologies that changed my life.
From my first job, I fell in love with Django. It is my default choice to build full-stack applications or provide APIs.
It made me discover the world of Python and its community. I have been helping at the PyconIT event and Django Girls Italy for years.
It is the technology that I have been carrying with me for several years and I hardly see it as replaceable. Python is making giant leaps in terms of performance and resources. Rust is giving a huge boost and I am convinced that in the next few years, Python will be a good place where to stay.
A long time ago I couldn’t enjoy Angular 1. When I heard about React I tried it right away and I loved it.
Precisely this minimalist nature made it emerge as one of the technologies that changed the world of web development (and not only, right React Native?).
Much of its success, however, is due to Redux and a wonderful—albeit complex—management of the state.
What can be said about this library? Exactly what I needed. By now I felt the need to find alternatives to the tedious Bootstrap (which I used practically only for the grid and the CSS reset). At first, I was a little skeptical of Tailwind and thought massing many classes was not a good idea.
After trying it seriously, I immediately changed my mind.
I can develop interfaces at an incredible speed compared to all the tools I used before. Especially considering it allows for incredible flexibility.
The newcomer. I have been using it for a few months, reducing the development time of low/medium interactivity applications by a lot.
It removes the need to create APIs and takes full advantage of Django’s potential by gradually replacing only the necessary interface pieces.

I live in Italy, more specifically in the north, between the mountains. While I drink some tea 🍵 I enjoy reading fantasy and non-fiction books. Besides reading, I also code for fun 🧑💻 and climb 🧗 a lot.
I’m part of some associations. I believe being in an association is the most effective and fun way to help improve the world.
Talking about food, I like pizza 🍕, pork ribs 🍖, milk + cookies 🥛🍪 and of course tea 🍵.
I want to play more TTRPGs but time is what it is.
My dream is to write and publish a fantasy book 📖. Nothing fancy, I imagine it as one of those cheap books you can find in every bookshop.

A quote that I carry in my heart
“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
