You just landed in my scholar website.
I sincerely don’t know how you got here, but I am glad you did!

I’m a neuroscience enthusiast with a just finished PhD, constantly traveling back and forth in Italy and beyond. I do have a particular love for Naples, my home city. If you have not done it yet, visit!

Enjoy your visit and see you around!

Why visiting Naples?
