Hello and welcome to my personal site.

I’m Michele. Was born in Italy, live in the UK, I'm a father of two, have a computer science PhD and enjoy writing. Code, music, words. Both for fun and to make a living.

I have been working in the broad knowledge management field for 20+ years now. Focusing on a wide range of topics, including theories of knowledge, ontology engineering and classification systems, data architecture, information visualisation, exploratory data analysis, semantic web and knowledge graphs.

On this website you’ll find a bit of everything. Half-baked musical compositions, open source software and academic papers. What you won't find is a coherent explanation of how it all fits together. So you’ll have to make sense of it yourself, I am afraid. Still, I hope you'll find something that sparks your imagination and creativity.

That's it, my friend. Do leave a message if you feel like it. Or, if you want a more impersonal and pompous bio, well.. keep reading then.
