My name is Francesco Chicchiriccò, and my surname has been a tricky challenge since I was
born in 1977, every time that I had to get in touch with any public office; the advent of
Internet made things even more cumbersome, despite of Unicode effort :-)

Linux addict since 1997, I am Italian (and proud to be), married with a lovely wife called
Cinzia, father of a wonderful boy called Davide. Since I was a child I've always loved comics
and music, playing bass guitar in a few metal rock bands with some friends.

About Computer Science, I got a master degree in 2001 in L'Aquila, after six months spent
at Nokia Research Center in Heksinki.
Since then I've been working as developer, analyst and architect for some companies until
I've established in 2004 my first IT company (ePOSSE, now Everett Italia -
In these days I am about to start a brand new Open Source based company, Tirasa -,
aiming to speed up the development and the adoption of Syncope Open Source IdM -

In 2006 I had the chance to meet Gianugo Rabellino, at a common customer's place, that introduced
to me the word of Apache Software Foundation in general and Cocoon in particular. Given the
fact that Cocoon 2.1 had an almost vertical learning curve, I've been fascinated by the upsetting
beauty of its architecture and potential.

Besides Cocoon, I've been contributing to some other projects like Sync4j (now Funambol),
OpenAM - and Hippo CMS -

My personal thanks to Simone for trying to involve me in the development of Cocoon 3, the
latest evolution of concepts and principles I've been loving for years.

As I've already told to PCM members, it is an honor for me to join the development of this
I wish I'll be able to contribute at best of my capabilities.
