"Fermo Corni" High School official logo
I won a contest where the participants where required to create a logo and a consistent visual identity for our institute.
My work was appreciated by the jury for the communicative immediacy, the distinct representativeness, the modern and fresh visual style, and its high versatility which allows it to be used in a wide range of different context, without loss of effectiveness.
I'm very flattered and I'm glad my efforts were appreciated by the evaluation committee, which acknowledged my effort in making a logo which was not only esthetically pleasant but also truly useful as a mean to represent the school in all the variety of context a logo can appear: t-shirts, posters, documents, websites, stickers and so on.The announcement on the school website

Appalo was a web application focused on notes sharing among college students.
It's developed with the (last-year) most recent technologies, with a reliable PHP/Apache/MySQL back-end and a fast & fluid VanillaJS/jQuery/HTML5/CSS3 front-end.
Thanks to the help of a fellow of mine (unfamiliar with web development), I minutely looked after the UX of the website, an aspect of which I'm really proud of, despite the eventual failure of the product (imputable to scarce audience interest in the service it offered, lack of aggressive marketing campaigns, and scarcity of resources).
During the development of Appalo I used for the first time the Node/npm/Grunt stack, which proved to be a great decision and highly improved the building process.
from August 2011 to November 2014
Codemunity was a social network targeted to programmers and geeks. It has been my very first large-scale project, whereby I greatly boosted my web design skills, and eventually fell in love with web development.
Looking at its code now, it's fairly crappy: it lacked a decent architecture and it wasn't backed in SOLID principles.
Nonetheless, it worked, and pretty much well: it's the project who survived the most (more than 2 years), yet it was outrageously killed by my backup negligency and a not-so-careful hoster. Sigh.
Codemunity was steadily used by a bunch of visitors, that helped me with initial design choices and from which I learnt how to deal with launch, maintenance and long-term support of an application.I owe a huge part of my knowledge and know-how to the Codemunity experience.
