I was born in Bologna in 1970 and I am full professor of general and inorganic chemistry at the University of Bologna.
My Curriculum Vitae (complete version in english, brief version in english and italian) is available for download at the bottom of this page.
The complete list of my publications can be seen here.
Since the very beginning of my career, I have been strongly involved in scientific education and popularization of Chemistry. I was a founding member of the group "Conoscere la Chimica" of the University of Bologna. I have been invited many times to talk about Chemistry in schools and in public events.
I am married and the father of two boys. When I am not working and I am not playing with my kids (these two activities take most of my time...), I enjoy playing keyboards in a rock band named "The Quantum Dots". I also like biking and swimming, and crafting objects (see a few of them here).
