While my education has mostly been focused on Computer Science, I am a graphic and video enthusiast and I'm a self-taught but all-around content creator.
During my early high school years I began learning Photoshop and Illustrator. Other than graphics, I did some freelance work as a content editor, translator and proofreader. Moreover, I worked for a long time as a videomaker, with the expertise to shoot, edit and animate videos completely on my own.
I'm a sociable person, well suited for teamwork, always open minded towards new ideas and approaches. I like new challenges and I quickly adapt to overcome them, keeping my motivation under pressure without ever sacrifing the product quality.

MK Media is a company holding two major online press publications in Italy. My roles inside the company has been multiple, all involving the creation of content in various forms. My main focus has been on creating videos, editorial pieces and graphics for social media and editorial usage.
Some key results I achieved by working in MK Media have been:
MK Media is a company holding two major italian online news websites, TuttoAndroid and TuttoTech. TuttoAndroid is the second biggest news source about everything regarding the Android ecosystem in Italy, while TuttoTech covers a wider range of technology-related topics and is growing at a fast pace.
My major focus on both TuttoAndroid and TuttoTech has been creating high quality content, like product reviews, editorial pieces or advanced guides and tutorials. Other than written content, I created many videos aimed for TuttoAndroid's YouTube Channel. My videos were always written, shot and edited entirely by me, and their contribute helped almost trebling the channel's subscribers (more than 200'000 as of my last video).
I also represented MK Media at many product launch events and major business fairs, like the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and the IFA in Berlin. Thanks to these opportunities, I had the chance to meet and network with many major personalities in the consumer technology market.
Other than creating user-focused content, I also often worked in MK Media to produce graphic content for the websites and social medias, as well as to design stickers, bags, T-shirts and other branding accessories. Furthermore, I entirely designed and created both TuttoAndroid's and TuttoTech's YouTube channels' graphic layout and video animations two times.
On a smaller scale, I also did some freelance work for MK Media by creating custom snippets and custom site heading for special events.
During my work in MK Media I achieved the following results:
I've developed the key functionalities of this simple Android videogame using Unity and coding it in C#. The game is a 2D platformer, with a ninja character who can attack with a sword and shoot fireballs to various enemies, while trying to reach the end of the level.
The learning of Unity and the development of the game took me approximately one week, but I plan to continue the development and enhance it in the future. While developing this game, I had a chance to improve in these areas:
Ninja2D is a small videogame project I created to learn the basics of Unity. The game is a 2D platformer developed primarily for Android, but easily portable to other platforms. In this game the player controls a ninja character in 2D linear levels with the goal of reaching the end of each one without falling from the platforms, while also facing some enemies. The player can jump, crouch, attack with a sword or shoot a fireball forward, while two of the enemies are a frog that jumps back and forth on platforms and an eagle that follows the ninja while he's within a certain range.
This videogame was entirely made by me except from the characters sprites and the background tiles, taken from royalty free assets. As a first experiment with Unity and C#, it took me approximately one week to study the basics of the game engine and to develop the actual game. Even though the concept is really simple, I plan to continue the development in the future in order to add levels and enemies and enhance the control and combat system.
Some features of Ninja2D to highlight are:
The website hosting this CV was entirely designed and developed by me. In particular:
This is a video I shot all by myself during the summer of 2018 for a luxury B&B in France. As an advertisement, the video is fast paced and shows all the best features of the Manoir Du Moulin B&B with B-rolls.
Some key features of this projects are:
Manoir Du Moulin is a luxury B&B in Sainte-Hermine, a small town in the Provence region, in France. While I lived there during the summer of 2018, I was asked by the owners to create an advertisement video for their B&B business.
I shot all the video sequences with a Panasonic Lumix G6 and a Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 lens. I did not have all my equipment with me, so the video was shot on a budget with just a tripod, a slider and two portable LEDs.
The product is a fast paced video showcasing all the Manoir Du Moulin suites, as well as the common spaces and the gardens on the outside. This required multiple days of shooting, as the suites were often occupied by clients, so I had to organize a schedule for the shootings and prepare in advance a list of B-rolls to shoot.
The final product has been edited primarily in Adobe Premiere, were all the clips were cut and organised into the timeline to match the rhythm of a background music I chose. To enhance the overall quality some animations and effects have also been created with the aid of advanced presets on Premiere and also by using After Effects.
Agenzia Le Corti, a local real estate agency located in Lonigo (Italy), commissioned the development of their new website and their online branding to a small team that I led. The website they asked us to create is meant for showcasing the properties on sale/rent through their agency in a fancy way, with a fast and easy-to-use search function.
I personally designed the whole website's UI and UX, making changes until all the requirements from the proponent were completely satisfied. The design of the website was intended as desktop-first, as that use case is the main one at the agency's office , but it is 100% responsive in every part.
Even if I focused mainly on the design and HTML+CSS structure, some key features of this website are:
I am currently attending a Master Degree in video games development. This MSc consists of both advanced aspects of Computer Science and practical projects in making actual games, both in groups and as an individual. As of my experience so far, I've already improved in various aspects:
This 3-year Bachelor in Computer Science was my highest curricular education and was focused on learning how to be a software developer. It helped me in achieving several crucial skills for a software developer, through both frontal lessons and pratical projects. Some of the skills I've acquired from my studies are:
This three-year-long bachelor degree in Computer Science was entirely taught in Italian at the University of Padua. The structure of the courses was mostly fixed, with just two elective courses. Many exams required some practical projects to be carried out, either by the individual student or in a team.
The third year was concluded with a two-month-long internship in a company (Tradenet Services) to develop an actual project. My final bachelor thesis is based on that internship experience, and it's called "Design and development of a cross-platform application using React and React Native".
The full list of exams I succesfully passed in order to get my bachelor degree is the following one:
My High School studies have been focused on scientific subjects, while also keeping a high level of education in humanistic fields like History, Philosophy and Latin. As a student of Liceo Levi I achieved the following goals:
