About me


Hell of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is the one that is already here, the hell that we live in every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to avoid suffering for it. The first is easy for many: accepting hell and becoming part of it to the point of no longer seeing it. The second is risky and requires constant attention and learning: seeking and knowing how to recognize who and what, in the midst of hell, is not hell, and make it last, and give it space.

Italo Calvino, The invisible cities

To understand the reason for the nickname xlthlx, just ring 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, theater, reading, writing, arithmetic, but above all technological toys.
My current technological family consists of an Android, a Pixel 6 Pro, a Kindle Paperwhite, and a Dell Precision 3510, also called Little Ben, and Macchinina, an old MacBook Air.

In the last few years my passion for make-up has exploded, even if my wallet has never been very happy with it. Sometimes I write about it, too, in a completely unprofessional way.

Since January 31, 2015 I live and work in London, together with my half sweet.
On 23 October 2021 we joined in a civil partnership.

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