My passion for watches started when I was 15 and my father gave me a Bulova Accutron that his father had originally given to him as a gift. From that moment on, I started reading and gathering information about watches on an occasional basis until the moment I eventually discovered the beautiful IWC collection by Porsche Design, which used to feature on every issue of the Architectural Digest magazine and ideally linked together my two biggest passions: watches and cars. From then on, it has been a continuous crescendo, which has culminated with me officially launching a magazine in two languages called Horbiter in September 2013. The name Horbiter is a clear reference to everything, which revolves around the world of watches and, in less than two years' time, the magazine has become an important webbased magazine fully acclaimed by competent aficionados, professionals in the field of horology and important watch brands. The magazine is a specialized publication featuring original pictures and a very personal style based on assertive and real opinions, something that is still not widespread enough in Italy. Horbiter is a resource for people who are passionate about watches like I am, and a publication where I can contribute my experience as an engineer and as a manager. Today, my life is split between my role as a company manager and the role of publisher, one that I play in my free time, and this allows me to share with you what I like the most: writing about watches and collecting them.
