Couple of days ago I started playing a bit, in my spare time, with PICO-8. We’re talking about a “fantasy programmable game console for making, sharing, and playing tiny games and other computer programs (cartridges, or “carts”). The console provides simple built-in tools for creating your own cartridges” and it is made by Lexaloffle Games. PICO-8 uses a subset of the LUA language for programming.

I have always had a thing for mechanical keyboards. The sound, the finish, the different switches. The overall feeling. All the fetishes behind such a majestic keyboard.

The one I currently use is a blank DAS Keyboard (Ultimate). I went for blue switches, because I just love the feeling and the sound. However, though, I use it at home only; such a […]

Here is a post about my small role in Bear’s video, which happened the last time I traveled to Italy past October (scroll down for the video).

What is Bear? It’s a beautiful, flexible writing app for crafting notes and prose. It has been selected and displayed as Editor’s choice in the App Store during its launch and recently awarded as the “App of The Year 2016” by the Apple Store itself (congratulations!!!).

I am very honored to have been asked to be part of this video. I know how much love and care are behind something like Bear: pixel perfect craft and delicious design […]

While digging into tons of old data, I stumbled upon couple of old images, dated 2004, by Belgian photographer Raymond Janssen. This was one of my first “pro” shoots, with a proper studio, lights, other models, etc. Before, I only had funny and amateur outdoor/location experiences, mostly with friends of mine (or friends of friends, […]

I admit, I am terrible with blogging. While I would like to be more constant and post about stuff that happens, I also keep thinking that most things are not very important (so I keep track of them on my instagram, for instance). Or maybe, they are too close to private life and I do not want […]

Ohhh. This website, with a registered domain name (as it existed before under a free service) turned 11 a few days ago.

A journey lasted at least eleven years: can’t avoid looking back and think how things changed. The most amazing part of it all is that some people started to follow my adventures back then and they are still here. Thank you!

I used to rarely speak my mind about certain topics for a number of reasons. First: I don’t want to be involved in endless arguments all over the internet. I know the internet, I’ve been around long enough. Second: I might, due to circumstances, have felt it inappropriate (such as when a tragedy happens and everyone […]

After its official presentation at RETROFUTURO // Independent Game Culture Festival in Milano past week, “Nati(vi) Videoludici” is out. This little book is all about memories, stories, interviews about people and videogames.

I am honored to be part of the book with my little story.
