Hi, my name is Alessio Damato and I'm from Rome, Italy. In 2005 I lived in Wrexham, north Wales, where I got a British degree in Sound/Broadcast engineering, then I moved to Rome where I graduated in Electronic engineering in 2006. At the moment I'm studying for a Master degree at the University of Rome. I give a help in both the English and the Italian wikipedia, even if most of the work I do is for the English one.

The Great Wikipedia
Can you figure out how great the Wikipedia project is? For the first time in the history, there is the possibility to access knowledge anytime, anywhere and without any kind of influence. People from all over the world help the development of Wikipedia and, thanks to its policy, the best compromise between all the different point of views is always guaranteed.
Wikipedia in the Education System
As far as I know, the education system did not realise, yet, how powerful Wikipedia could be.
Teachers usually have to give notes to the students about the subject they are studying. These material is normally published on the web sites belonging to the University or College where they are working. If any teacher would be publishing the notes for his students on Wikipedia instead of these private web sites, that would be a great contribution to the Wikipedia project giving anybody the possibility to access to the latest up-to-date information from any kind of subject.
If you are a teacher, publish your notes on Wikipedia: you will get instantaneous fixing of the mistakes and improvements.
Changing point of view, in the British system (and maybe in other systems as well), students have to write assignments (i.e. research, project or report about anything) in order to pass an exam. Students could publish some parts of these assignments on Wikipedia adding just some minor changes.
If you are a student, publish the most interesting parts of your assignments on Wikipedia: your work will not go wasted and you will help other students like you.
I started the Wikiproject about electronics. My major interest is about electronic engineering since this is what I am studying at the University at the moment. The articles about engineering to which I made major changes are: AES/EBU, Amplitude-shift keying, Biometrics, Biphase Mark Code, Discrete-time Fourier transform, Intersymbol interference, Johnson-Nyquist noise, JPEG 2000, Negative impedance converter, Nyquist ISI criterion, Offset quadrature phase-shift keying, Operational amplifier applications, Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing, Phase-shift keying, Quadrature amplitude modulation, Rain fade, Site diversity, Soliton (optics) S/PDIF, Star-Triangle transformation, Super diode, Uplink Power Control, Variable rate encoding, Xcircuit plus other minor changes.
Since I have the hobby of drinking beer and of travelling tasting the local beers (the so called "beer tourism"), I joined the Wikiproject about beer, that has the aim of collecting all the possible information about the different kinds of beer and about brewing. I gave help to the following articles: India Pale Ale, Lager, Stout, Summer ale, Smooth Flow beer, Imperial stout, Irish stout, Milk stout, Oatmeal stout, Chocolate stout, Oyster stout.
Since I'm from Rome, I wrote some articles about it: 14 regions of the Augustan Rome, Administrative subdivision of Rome, Campo de' Fiori, Colosseum, Rioni of Rome, Sampietrini, Monti (rione of Rome), Trevi (rione of Rome), Colonna (rione of Rome), Campus Martius, Ponte (rione of Rome), Parione, Regola (rione of Rome), Sant'Eustachio (rione of Rome), Pigna (rione of Rome), Campitelli, Sant'Angelo (rione of Rome), Ripa (rione of Rome), Trastevere, Borgo (rione of Rome), Esquilino (rione of Rome), Ludovisi, Sallustiano, Castro Pretorio, Celio (rione of Rome), Testaccio, San Saba (rione of Rome), Prati (rione of Rome).
Other Wikimedia projects
I upload all the images I can to Wikicommons, so it is possible it use them in any other project of the Wikimedia family. On my user page I keep a gallery of all the pictures I have uploaded. I also wrote the linux part of Cleaning up interference with Fourier analysis
