I am from Italy, I studied Mathematics at University of Pisa.
I contributed to several open source project, Inkscape, Visual Toolkit (VTK) and (obviously) LibreOffice.
I am working as a software engineer at Collabora by 6 years. I contribute to bug fixing, and implementing news feature both for the Desktop and Online version of LibreOffice.
Latest improvements for the SVG export filters include the support for presentation with slide background represented by bitmaps. The slide background can also be made up of tiles where each tile is represented by a bitmap or a given pattern. The support for such kinds of backgrounds has been implemented in a resource safe way: minimizing both the exported file size and the impact on the browser rendering performance.
