Born in a small town of Paraná State, in Brazil, third son of Italian Parents, that were immigrants at the beginning of last Century.

In 1952 I've moved to São Paulo, joined Mackenzie University, and took my degree in Architecture.

Worked a few years as an Architect and afterwards followed Administrative Careers in a Building Material Industry for 20 years and in an Electronic Hardware Industry for 10 years more.

During my working years I had the opportunity of traveling through almost all Western Europe countries, United States and most of Latin American Countries. Besides Portuguese, I speak Italian and Spanish quite well, understand English fairly and French poorly.

Married in 1960, we have two sons: The older, now 46 years old, an Architect is today a Professor with PHD Degree at UNICAMP – University of Campinas. The younger, 43 years old, is a Chemical Engineer, also with a PHD Degree, is a Professor at USP – University of São Paulo.

Today, I’m 75 years old, widower and retired, but still interested in learning.
