Francesco has been working for CSI Piemonte since 2000. Starting as a Java developer, he became Team Leader and System Architect in 2001. During 2002, when CSI Piemonte was involved in the first wave of e-Government services in Italy, he worked in team with another J2EE architect to provide the project manager with a strong infrastructure-level architecture, to support the new e-Gov services. In 2004 he was assigned to a new infrastructure-level project with total responsibility for budget and delivery. The goal was to build a software infrastructure enabling the exchange of messages among civil service bodies according to the event-driven paradigm.
