Professional practices Luca Gentili endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Alongside my freelance translation job, I have been working as an IT consultant for over 20 years: 10+ years for Telecom Italia,  5+ for the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (mostly on consular and electoral procedures and laws), 2+ consulting at PosteItaliane.

I have a BA in Languages in the Information Society and a high school diploma in industrial electronics. I have a passion for natural sciences and a strong education in maths, physics and chemistry (I attended Geology courses at university, and brilliantly passed the admission exam at Phisics faculty). I have a wide classical music background (I studied music for several years and I play both guitar and transverse flute, and I sing in a choir). I also have an interest in religions, philosophy, and social sciences.

This widely varied background allows me to sweep among different subjects being able to understand technical, literary, scientific, and philosophical topics with little or no effort.
