About Me

Ubuntu Stuff

My Work

LoCo Marketing Team

In January 2007 I proposed to the Italian Community Council the creation of an Italian Marketing Team (later named Gruppo Promozione). With the help of Milo Casagrande and Salvatore Palma I have set up the Group, I wrote the roadmap and I wrote the guidelines for new projects. I'm still in charge of it where I mainly mentor new members and I coordinate the event organization.

Community Testing Team

After UDS Lucid, following the "increase community partecipation in tests" I started an Italian Testing Team trying to bring more contributors to Ubuntu through QA activities. I presented Team's results at UDS-M, UDS-N, UDS-O, UDS-P and I wrote the LoCo Testing How To in the hope that other teams may start contributing in Ubuntu through testing.

Ubuntu Events

The full list of the events I organized is available in the Conference page.

Other projects

ALT - Agile Lean Tuscany

I Founded the ALT - Agile Lean Tuscany in 2013 with the idea of spreading the Agile Methodologies for Software in Tuscany (Italy). Today we have meetings in form of Lean Coffee every month in Siena, Florence and Pisa.

Scrum for Hardware

In 2016 I launched Scrum for Hardware, a website in Italian and English about the Agile Methodologies and Scrum for developing Hardware products.

Silicon Hills

In 2014 I founded Silicon Hills, an initiative in Siena (Tuscany) for making people interested in innovation to meet. We have each month meetings about Agile, Design and innovation.


I created a Creative Commons Website, completely in Italian, about Agile Scrum. Every part of the framework is explained starting from the Scrum Guide with FAQ, like Product Owner, Scrum Master, Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog. etc.


I published two books, clearly under the Creative Commons BY-SA license:

If you're doing an Artificial Intelligence Agile Development with Scrum, please let me know! I'd like to interview you and publish you on my book!


I would like to leave my testimonial for Paolo. I've been knowing him since almost the beginning of the Italian community, with him we started the Italian newsletter, a "spin-off" of the UWN, with his help we've organized the first Ubuntu-it meeting and from his idea the Italian Gruppo sviluppo (the Italian counterpart of the international development team) was born; he still is part of the translation team and helps us translating interviews other than software. He always has great ideas, he is a passionate and very active open source and free software advocate. I would highly recommend him. -- milo 2009-01-04 21:21:24

Paolo has been a consistent and very valuable contributor to the Italian team for a long time now, he is an excellent candidate for membership. -- mdke 2009-01-05 10:19:43

I would like to sponsor Paolo for his membership. He's one of the first member of the Italian community and his enthusiasm is not went down during the years. He has worked for the organization of the first Ubuntu Italian Meeting and now he works in several projects of our community! He's a very good member of Ubuntu as well as a great person! You rock! -- hattory 2009-01-05 10:35:18

Paolo is a great force behind ubuntu-it and a very nice person, too. His contribution to the Italian team is excellent! lorenzosfarra 2024-07-22 18:41:28

I am very happy to add here my personal testimonial for Paolo, a delightful fellow in our team. During these years he had always contributed with firm belief and competence to a large part of our activities. He has joined the Gruppo Web (the Ubuntu Italian Website Team) at the very beginning and since then he was a strategic contributor. I would highly recommend him for the membership. thesaltydog 2024-07-22 18:41:28
