    Italian native speaker, based not too far from Venice, where I help tourists getting deeper lost in the street labirinth :-) I am Maths and Riddles enthusiast: I began solving Sudokus in preparation for the competition, and participated in the Italian championship that year. That changed my life: now I own my puzzle company and I enjoy sharing my games to other puzzles fans. I am best known for the introduction of Sudoku & Dragons. I have developed interest in many "nerdy" things, like Rubik's Cube: my personal best is 39''. You can learn it in one afternoon!
