Hello ${visitor.name}!

My name is Alessandro and I’m a senior backend developer for an Italian multinational corporation. I mainly work with Java/Kotlin and Spring technologies but in the past I also worked with C# (I published a Windows Phone app some years ago).

I’ve been an avid reader since I was a child - as a kid I devoured Piccoli brividi (Goosebumps) and Il battello a vapore series. José Saramago Now, I mainly read classics, science fiction and non-fiction. My favorite writers are Edgar Allan Poe, Philip K. Dick and José Saramago (Blindness is my all-time favorite book!) I also appreciate Yevgeny Zamyatin, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Stanisław Lem, H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov and many others…! I have a Kindle two Kindles but I love the smell of paper 📚

Locanda delle fate - Forse le lucciole non si amano più

Music is my other great passion - I buy tons of CDs and listen to music all the time! Until a few years ago I listened almost exclusively to metal but now my tastes are more varied: from classical through electronic to avant-garde metal 🤘 Among my favorite artists there are Opeth, Pink Floyd, Rammstein, Ahab, early Tangerine Dream, Goblin, Schammasch, Locanda delle fate, Atheist, Bloodbath, Fabrizio De André… and countless others!
