A bunch of science and a bouquet of art


I am currently interested in data science, complex networks, blockchain, bibliometrics and generative art. I also worked in the field of logic and of artificial intelligence.


I am currently teaching data science and network science. I also taught creative computing, algorithms, databases, and XML technologies.


One of my favourite verbs is to demystify, in particular when it's applied to complex mathematical ideas. I am a TEDx speaker: my talk was about time in logic and computer science (in Italian, English translation, slides).


I love cross-fertilization between science and art. Under the nickname HEX0x6C, I am a generative and crypto artist.

I love blockchain, from technological and philosophical view points. Here is my tidy approach to understand blockchain.

Outside academia, I approached theater and contemporary dance (with controversial outcomes!). My artistic experiences, in chronological order.
