Un immagine da \"Procrastination\", di Johnny KellyAs you can see since some months weeks days the new version of this site is now online.
The late english blog is now in homepage while the italian one in /italiano (yeah, a mess.), I updated the page with useful infos in case you would pretend to be me at a party and I added a page with the last fruits of my labour.
