I graduated in chemistry/physics in June 1951, a few months before I turned 23, with an experimental thesis on which I had done more than two years of lab work, earning a grade of 110/110 cum laude.

I immediately looked for a job – something not easy at that time (but of course not so hard as today).
In October, I was hired at Richard Ginori, where, however, I was forced into doing rather boring work.

Every day, in the late afternoon, I went back to working at the university.

At the time, I certainly could not imagine that dividing myself between work and study, between industry and research, was not the answer to a temporary need, but would become the theme for my whole career.

With this website, I will attempt to summarize and share what I have achieved in 69 years of work.
