Not writing much lately… here it goes an update.
It has been two months since the last update… sorry. I was not expecting such a gap but when I’m not travelling seems a bit irrelevant to update boring desk work from home.

Last Friday I had to run back home to pass these days and I will be working from here until this is over and we can move freely and safely again. In a few days I will post something prettier, but fot the moment I wanted to share a couple of FAQs:
