About me


The hell of the living is not something that will be: if there is one, it is what is already here, the hell where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the hell and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and learning: seek and be able to recognise who and what, in the midst of the hell, are not hell, then make them endure, give them space.

Italo Calvino, The invisible cities

To understand why the nickname xlthlx, just have a look at this old post, or you can see the small Xlthlx in the Doodle that Google had dedicated to Italo Calvino.

I love science fiction, surreal jokes, music, cinema, TV series, theatre, reading, writing, arithmetic, but above all technological toys.
My current technological family consists of an Android, a Pixel 3a, a Kindle Paperwhite, and a Dell Precision 3510, also called Little Ben.

For some years now my passion for makeup has exploded, even though my wallet has never been in agreement. Sometimes I write about it, even, in a completely unprofessional way.

Starting 31 January 2015, I live and work in London. 

I forgot: it seems that my profession is Web Developer.
I also wrote some technical posts about it, but nothing serious: basically I do that job only since 1998.
