In the early 80s I was a big fan of Alberto Camerini (italian tecno pop singer) and very fascinated by the electronic world of "Compiiiiuters".
I remember my first console, a Philips Videopac with basic language decoder, then the first "graphic" experiments with my Commodore 128 and its Basic 7.0; after that the Big Amiga and Deluxe Paint...
I discovered years later the European Institute of Design in Milan, where, they said, I could have became a "Computergraphic": Great!...
From that point on, Videogames, 3d/2d and Motion Graphic, Multimedia and Web...a lot of various creativity...and Camerini is still in my playlist!!!

I speak GERMAN and ENGLISH fluently.
