Valentino Pacifici is a pasta-fed geek. Originally, he is from the green heart of Italy, a place surrounded by villages that seem (and arguably are) stuck in time.
He has two Master’s degrees in Computer Engineering and he holds a PhD in Telecommunication Engineering. He tries to hide his total nerdiness by engaging in activities that both geeks and non-geeks seem to value, like organizing TEDx events and training.
He was the director of TEDxStockholm in 2015 and has been taking care of TEDxStockholm’s development since 2011. Currently, he is a member of the TEDxStockholm’s board, and he works at KTH as a researcher designing algorithms that have “mathematically strong” properties, one would say. He secretly wishes to make a debut in Stockholm’s entrepreneurial world.
