Studies and Certifications
In 1992 I achieved a diploma in electronics (italian title: “Perito elettronico”). In the following years, between 1994 and 1996, I attended two specialization courses about microelectronics, both provided by C.S.E.A., a training institution in my country:

- Technician designer of applications on microprocessor systems (italian title: “Tecnico progettista di applicazioni su sistemi a microprocessore”), course of 1400 hours
In 2006 I started to learn Java programming completely by myself. Thanks to my passion and interest about Java, I also achieved two professional certifications:

SCWCD 5 (“Sun Certified Web Component Developer for
the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5”)
exam CX-310-083, score 94%
