Geographer specialized in Free and Open Source GIS technologies.
Since 2007 I contribute to OpenStreetMap specially during my the outdoor activities. I started in Genova and when I moved
to Trentino I continued to map here, helping the community to grow.
I organized and partecipated several events, meeting and conferences where I try to help people to start to contribute or use OpenStreetMap. The most important events where I was involved are OSMit, the Italian OpenStreetMap conference (specially during years 2010-2011-2012) and M(')appare Genova (2012)

During years I collected several information about OpenStreetMap, I created a simple tutorial (in Italian, sorry) to learn how to use and render OpenStreetMap data.
During years I contributed to several project testing, writing documentation, translating and developing.
For some software I did few contributions, but others I'm continuing to contribute year after year.
I'm a OSGeo Advocate and you can see
