November, 2005 Magicians
time ago i wrote a song for Regine. It's called 'Magicians'
left to Germany 2 days ago leaving me alone. She went to visit her
Papa, who's not feeling very well.
And i write down this lines, so that everytime you Regine connect
to the internet these days you can see that i'm all the time thinking
about you, because i love you very much.
Hug the big Christoph for me, and kiss Marie Luise. And think about
jahre mit Regine
is our second anniversary. We met 2 years ago in Milan. Regine came
in Rome to live with me and changes her and my life. She converted
her University exams and continued here in Italy with great results;
Regine will become Doctor in Languages in December, certified by Universita'
degli Studi di Roma 'La Sapienza'. And you all can imagine how proud
of her I can be.
Our life is full of plans for the future, and full of happiness and
joy for the present.
Lately I'm listening to music more often then the recent past. I discovered
Paul Simon and we are both in love with his songs from the 'Negotiations
and love songs' album.
Moreover I'm always more convinced about how good pop music can do
to me, and how in this field new realities that I've always blamed
for stupid prejudices are instead of good quality and significant.
I'm talking about Robbie Williams, who I think is the best performer
and music talent of this years; for he is able to always bring new
and good songs (which i bet none can do so well).
I'm talking about Tiziano Ferro, who is (with Morgan) in my opinion
the best new italian talent (even if i think he must still do better
with lyrics), for the way he sings and the modalities he structures
his pieces. New music is not always made of great diversity or breakthrough
words: not everybody can be like the Velvet Underground, and not every
decade we can expect new Nivana arising... Being different and very
good can also be, like Tiziano and Robbie, being extraordinary in
normal pop and make this pop art relive and mantain its power with
new energy and talent.
Without trying in all the ways to change the World.
October, 2005 Regine
is now 25
very sorry, but lately i id not updated this site and i cannot find
any valid excuse. The thing is that October is a very stressful period
for my professional activity...
What i missed the most is to tell to the whole World about Regine's
birthday, on the 8th. Regine is now 25, and more beautiful then ever.
My gift was an Mp3 player and a big big big heart shaped "Crostata
ai frutti di bosco". We love very much our life and we are so
proud about how good we feel together. Yesterday we went to the castelli
romani (Castelgandolfo) and we ate very much. Actually we are eating
a lot lately, also due to happenings we are attending all aroud: the
last one was the Alessandro and Stefania wedding, in Vico Equense.
Dario bought an apartment in Naples some months ago, and all the family
is now focused on this event....made of restructring and contemplating
aout how it will appear in few weeks...

July, 2005 The
I'm writing a book about mathematics, on a theory I'm developing with
the inspiration of Regine regarding Real Numbers and one of their
properties. I call this property "The Golden Number".
And this will lead us to the Nobel Prize, sooner or later.
While this is gently
happening, Regine is blooming in her most amazing, beautiful and sweet
essence and I'm more then ever in love with her.
She's working hard with University and the job which is greatly rewarding
her greatness. And I'm so proud.
And this week end we'll
start a week of vacations in Palinuro, in a camping at the seaside.

June, 2005 So
I met America
Sunday, June 5th. 10.20
am local time, 4.20 pm Italian time. The plane landes.
Ten minutes later I take the first step on the United States ground,
4 hours later i'm in Denver, Colorado, attending the Worldwide HP
So I met my dream,
which i dreamt for so long, which i imitated for 30 years.
So i met my music, which i listened open hearted, which i played,
which i sang, which i red.
So I met America.
Denver is nothing special,
Colorado's got good views.
And i drove a red Mazda 6. And i eat great buffalo meat. And stood
in a football stadium, Invesco Fields at Mile High. And climbed at
the Rocky Mountains National Park.
I crossed the planet,
and filled an hole in my soul.
So I met America.
Regine, Madrid. And Christopher.
We visited Madrid this
weekend, me and my adorable Regine.
Every happening is a milestone in our amazing love story, and every
time Regine is more beautiful and gives me all the happiness i want
and can imagine.
A so we walked around Madrid but mostly hangin' round Sol and the
Tapas Bars. And my belly grew this days so much that now i almost
hate my body and i must recover my beauty with a kind of diet, i'll
hardly face. We did not visit Madrid, because this is what we wanted;
we slept, walked, drank, ate, met Anke, and slept again.
And we stayed at Hostal Alaska, www.hostalalaska.com, which we suggest
to you all because of the central position, the gentle owner Carlos
and his "7 daughters" (which are the 7 rooms...).
We relaxed very much, and yesterday it was so bad to go back to work...
And I red "The
Curious incident of the dog in the Night time", the book
about Christopher: an autistic child who loves the truth, who like
maths and wets his pants. And i liked it because he is so sweet and
i feel very much like him sometimes (but i dont wet my pants no more)...and
i think i'm starting to write and think like him...
The following is one of the few jokes that Christopher likes, concerning
the preciseness of mathematicians. And the joke runs as follows. "There
are three men on a train. One of them is an economist and one of them
is a logician and one of them is a mathematician. And they have just
crossed the border into Scotland (I don't know why they are going
to Scotland) and they see a brown cow standing in a field from the
window of the train (and the cow is standing parallel to the train).
And the economist says, `Look, the cows in Scotland are brown.' And
the logician says, 'No. There are cows in Scotland of which at least
one is brown.' And the mathematician says, 'No. There is at least
one cow in Scotland, of which one side appears to be brown.' And this
is funny because economists are not real scientists, and because logicians
think more clearly, but mathematicians are best."
This joke, and Christopher, make me laugh and happy...about love,
life, and the immense pureness of maths.
And i must say thank you to the Stein sisters...
April, 2005 Holy
Many things happened
lately, since the last update:
- we bought a new
- i was at one of
the most exiting live concerts of the recent past: Morgan "Canzoni
dell'appartamento", at Circolo degli Artisti in Rome
- the Pope was feeling
bad...sad pilgrims invaded Rome!
- the Pope was dying...more
sad pilgrims invaded Rome!
- the Pope has died...some
sad pilgrims were sleeping outside my front door!
- the (new) Pope from
Germany has been elected...the sad pilgrims turned to happy!
- Rome has been invaded
by millions of pilgrims, turning from sadness to happiness every
- Lazio region has
changed its political asset, moving from right to left
- I was in Cannes
for an HP event
- Franzi has left
the apartment (we hope to see you soon Franzi!)
Imagine if i should
now tell about all that stuff...so i summarize the most peculiar.
Morgan concert revealed his talent and a reborning positive consideration
inside me of Italian music. Morgan, from Bluevertigo, is a fresh air
wind in the desert land of italian music artists: he got the right
pop tunes, the right modern sounds, the right moves. What i'm worried
about is his passion for Fabrizio De Andre' with his melancholic and
sad and negative vision of life; De Andre' was an artist, maybe a
poet, but not a great musician and pop singer..which is what Morgan
should aspire to be.
Pilgrims, biased and bigots invaded Rome in the last weeks to meet
the Pope event. Believe in God or not, despice this or not, I feel
in the center of the World. Where the things happen. And i always
wanted this. And now i have this. Thanks to Rome.
Aaahhh! And we finally
printed our big pictures by Gianfranco. They're now exposed in our
living room, which now seems more ours then ever.
February, 2005 Papared
Ciro deployed the idea
that was standing in our hearts since a long time, maybe since the
beginning of all.
The idea that in our hearts Ugo, Papa', is sculptured as an idol;
the feeling that Papa' has shaped our lives, our thoughts, our way
Ciro deployed the fact that Papa' is a part of us, the best part of
me and my life, the one we will always trust, love and belong to.
Ciro act is printed
in his "Papared Style" label, and represents a good way
indeed to feel proud, to feel thankful, to feel stronger...because
Thank you Ciro. Thank
February, 2005 The
peak I don't deserve
Regine gives the sweetest
smiles i've ever seen
Regine spreads the warmest atmosphere i've ever felt
Regine's got the most beautiful skin i've ever touched
Regine gives the greatest love i could ever have expected to exist
Regine lied in my supreme
wishes, she hid in the concepts of pure and absolute happines.
Regine is the peak. The peak I don't deserve.
January, 2005 Linear
The following lines
describe a property of a Linear Transformation, which i found and
demonstrated during the University years (1993).
First we start with
defining what we're talking about...
Let A be a linear transformation of the vector space U into the vector
space V .
The collection of all those vectors x in U such that Ax = 0 is called
the kernel of A and is denoted by ker(A).
The collection A(U) of all those vectors y in V for which there exists
some vector x in U so that A(x)=y is called the range of A and is
denoted by range(A). The following property is important and can be
demonstrated: (Dimension of kernel of A ) + (dimension of range of
A )=(dimension of U).
Then we come to what we want to demonstrate...
it is possible to determine the Kernel and the Range of a Linear Transormation
studiing the behaviour of a base of the space of definition."
I'll now go more in depth using Italian language, which
i'm more used to for technical stuff. Next days i'll translate all
Sia f una trasformazione
lineare definita nello spazio V.
Dal teorema “Nullita’ + Rango” si ha dim V = dim
N(f) + dim Im(f)
Ponendo dim V = n, una qualiasi base di V sara’ costituita da
Possiamo dimostrare il seguente teorema:
Sia f una trasformazione lineare definita nello spazio V.
Se k elementi della base di uno spazio V hanno immagine nulla, k sara’
la dimensione del Nucleo di f.
Il Nucleo di una trasformazione lineare f e’ un sottoinsieme
dell’insieme di partenza V formato da elementi la cui immagine,
secondo f, e’ nulla. Si dimostra che esso e’ un sottospazio.
Considerando k elementi della base di V che hanno immagine nulla,
lo spazio lineare da essi generato avra’ dimensione k, essendo
questi elementi indipendenti. Si osservi che ogni elemento appartenente
a questo spazio L(k) puo’ essere espresso nella forma x=x1e1+...+xkek,
dove e1...ek sono i k elementi finora considerati.
Si avra’, di conseguenza, f(x) = x1f(e1)+...+xnf(ek)
= 0, essendo f(e1) = ... = f(ek) = 0.
Da cio’ segue che ogni elemento appartenente ad L(k) ha immagine
nulla: L(k) e’ quindi incluso nel Nucleo di f. L(k)=N(f)
Gli altri n-k elementi della base di V hanno immagine non nulla, percui
lo spazio da essi generato L(n-k) e’ formato da elementi con
immagine non nulla (escludendo, ovviamente, il vettore nullo).
Si dimostra facilmente che se S = (e1,...,en, w1,...,wn)
e’ un insieme indipendente,
L(e1,...,en)nL(w1...wn) = 0 insieme nullo,
ed inoltre L(e1,...,en)+L(w1...wn) = L(S).
Si ha, quindi, che L(k)nL(n-k) = 0 insieme nullo, ed inoltre
L(k)+L(n-k) = L(base di V) = V
Da cio’ si deduce che L(k) e’ proprio il nucleo della
trasformazione lineare f considerata.
Infatti, se fosse stato L(k)=V rimaneva da verificare se gli elementi
rimasti fuori da L(k) e comunque appartenenti a V avessero ancora
immagine nulla. Essendo L(k) e L(n-k) due componenti o lacune di V,
questi elementi ‘rimasti fuori da L(k)’ sono proprio quelli
di L(n-k). Siccome abbiamo gia’ visto che questi elementi non
hanno mai immagine nulla, possiamo concludere che gli elementi del
nucleo di f sono tutti e soli gli elementi di L(k), percui L(k)=N(f)
e, di conseguenza, dimN(f) = k.
La proprieta’ appena dimostrata puo’ ricavarsi dal noto
torema dell “Nullita’ + Rango”
In questa dimostrazione si parte da una base del Nucleo e si completa
questa ad una base dello spazio di partenza. Il fatto che lo spazio
generato da questi vettori indipendenti ‘aggiunti’ sia
formato soltanto da vettori la cui immagine e’ non nulla e’
lasciato, pero’, all’intuizione del lettore.
La dimostrazione appena descritta raggiunge il suo scopo senza far
riferiemnto alla “Nullita’ + Rango” ed, anzi, puo’
considerarsi una ulteriore dimostrazione di questo teorema.
January, 2005 European
the last Christmas holidays between Napoli and Calw.
Returnig from Rome,
it was nice and warm to be in Napoli with relatives and friends. I
cant explain where this feeling comes from, and why, but Christmas
time really creates around my World a kind of quiet and warm light,
lightening the persons of my life. And so, the best memory i have
about my parents, Dario, Marco, Alessandro, Paoletto, Ciro, Gianfranco
and many others is now related to that time when we melted again as
we were one time. It also happens that you meet your relatives this
days, twisted in a precisely coordinated organization of banquets
starting on the 24th and calming down on the 26th...at night. But
just to restart on the 31st untill the 6th of January... Well, my
family goes futher in meeting and mostly eating because of my father's
birthday, which comes on the 7th!
But this time i abandoned
Italy on the 27th, to dive into Regine's Christmas kingdom, based
in Calw, and made of warmth, food, cold, family. Well actually, if
i deeply think about that, it mostly differentiates from my habits
because of the snow! ;o) A good time in Germany, i spent on the snow,
in a beer factory, in a thermal building relaxing and watching Regine's
splendor, but above all i was welcomed by Regine's family and its
Christmas style made of....
... Peter coming back from Koln, fighting against the brand new laptop,
torturing his mind with a love affair, cooking a great "flammkuchen"...
... Almi coming back from Ulm, then returning to Sebastian, then returning
in Calw, then moving with us to Baden Baden...
... Regine's Parents taking care and telling all the time :"it's
coffee time!" ;o)
Actually i ate a lot in Napoli and a lot of times in Calw! That's
why now i'm calming down with food and beer.
On Silvester we moved
to Heidelberg, and joined Sina and her flat mates (the great Michael!)
to her Silvester party, which was nice and hard to forget. Sina, my
congratulations for your food: are you sure you dont have Italian
ancestors? ;o) On the way to and back from Heidelberg we drove with
Sandra and her husband Dirk, eating Haribo most all the way long!
And a friend of them invited us for a brunch, exellent, surrounded
by his fabulous dogs.
Now i'm back in Rome,
ready to start a new year. Or almost ready.
way Regine smiles
is the way Regine smiles...
this is me...but i think i imitate it well...
soon you'll be told about the amazing Christmas time between Napoli
...happy new year to all of you!
