ENGLISH: I'm an Italian entrepreneur working in San Francisco to create a new Internet based business. I have a "hidden" passion for botany, and everything in nature. I love to spend time in the field taking pictures of plants, flowers, and animals and trying to identifying everything I see. If you find a wrong ID in my collection of observations please do not hesitate to notify me. Thank you!
