For over 10 years I`ve been working in the field of creation and development of projects such as interactive video games, CD-Roms, Web pages, catalogs, etc.
The aspects that most interest me is the concept creation and the development of theinteractive script.
In this section I have included a selection of works that I have achieved in recent years.

A few months after its first appearance,OPERATION WOW hit the top of the list as one of the most downloaded apllication in the world, with more than
600 thousand downloads and an average ranking of 5 stars.

LARIOS WATERVOLLEY SIMULATOR
For several years Larios, the company that produce its famous ‘gin’, sponsored every summer a Watervolley Tournament. Watervolley is a sport like beach volleyball but played in pool of water.
During the days of the tournament Larios also organised many parties in major cities of Spain (Ibiza, Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, etc.)
Larios asked me to design and develop a promotional videogame based on the Watervolley Tournament, that to be shown on giant screens during Larios Parties.
I created a videogame called “Larios Watervolley Simulator” that features vectorial graphics and Flash programming.

TOMMY & OSCAR:
THE PHANTOM OF THE THEATRE
In 1995 I created the concept and the characters of Tommy & Oscar, which made its first appearance in the CD-ROM “Tommy & Oscar: The Phantom of the Theatre”, produced by Italian animation studio Rainbow Spa.
This CD-ROM has been very successful all over the world, particularly in Europe, Asia and Latin America, and has been translated into over 20 languages.
The main character, Oscar, is an extraterrestrial who feeds upon music notes and the whole CD-ROM is designed as a fun way to teach the basics of music theory to children.
“Tommy & Oscar: The Phantom of the Theatre” contains more than one hour ofanimation and features a new graphic engine developed specifically for this product.
The CD-ROM also contains 9 musical videogames created by me, including
It includes a small keyboard to be applied to the computer keyboard and turns the PC into a real musical instrument with rhythmic, loops and drums
In 1997, “Tommy & Oscar: The Phantom of the Theatre”
won the prestigious international award “Bologna New
Media Prize”, and judged by the American magazine
“Children Software Revue” as thebest interactive
product for children music education.
In 1998, given the enormous worldwide success of
“Tommy & Oscar: The Phantom of the Theatre”,
Rainbow S.p.a. in collaboration with RAI - Radio
Televisione Italiana decided to produce a TV series of 26 episodes with the same charactes of the CD-ROM.
The TV series of Tommy & Oscar has been broadcasted by more than 40 international TV stations, obtening a huge success expecially in Europa, Asia and Latin America.
The popularity of the characters of Tommy & Oscar is also due to a strong marketing andmerchandising operation: dolls, toys, books, clothing, etc.
In the recent years a second TV series of 26 episodes were produced by Rainbow and Home Video, DVDs, Videogames, magazines, and a feature film titled “Tommy & Oscar: The Movie” were added to the chart
In the year 2008 I won a long legal battle against RAINBOW SPA for the recognition of my authorship of the concept and the characters of Tommy & Oscar.
