I am an Italian citizen living in Holland. I was born in 1955, in Cava dei Tirreni, a small town not far from Naples and from Salerno.
I studied Physics at the University of Salerno. After my degree, I spent some years doing research in superconductivity (at the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt in Berlin and at the Salerno University). I decided thereafter to join the European Patent Office (EPO) in the Netherlands (in Rijswijk, a small town near the Hague). I have been living in the Netherlands (and working at the EPO) since 1986.
In my free time I like to read any theory challanging Einstein's Relativity theory or to carry out a theoretical research on this subject. I am in fact convinced that there is something wrong with Einstein's theory, notwithstanding its huge number of successes and nearly universal acceptance by physicists.
