110/110 cum Laude
average examination mark before the thesis: about 29.54/30
Diploma in Viola, obtained in 2001 (10 years, recognized as a Bachelor's Degree according to the Italian Law 268/2002, and recently - Stability Law No. 228 of 24 December, 2012 - also as a Master's Degree)
Besides playing music, I have used my competencies in music also in doing research at the international research centre Casa Paganini-InfoMus, writing journal papers and conference papers in the context of the EU Project 7FP ICT FET SIEMPRE (Social Interaction and Entrainment using Music PeRformancE). In particular, in that context I have combined competencies in music with methods of Operations Research (e.g., Game Theory). In 2017, I participated as a violinist to the presentation of the book "Schegge di Memoria" by the novelist Isabella Pileri Pavesio at the Italian Literary Prize "Bancarella".
