"Fun" 🙄 Facts
I have been a nascent entrepreneur and won a business plan competition with JobCrop, a wannabe service for hiring gamification.
I come from the province of Savona, where the age-dependency ratio (people over 65 / people aged 20-64) is beyond 50%. In 2009, I founded an organization that lobbied for young people.
I worked for three years as a lifeguard on a beach in the Italian Riviera, and I am still a licensed Lifeguard.
My great-great-grandfather, Vittorio Pastrengo, was an inventor and patented two inventions.
My workplace as a lifeguard, quite hard to beat.
