Welcome to my website!
This is my personal website, founded on January 10th 2011, where I publish all my works and activities. At the moment, since I lack spare time, the site is still quite 'unripe', but I hope over time to improve it more and more, keeping it updated and adding other content.
To make browsing as much intuitive and pleasant as possible, I took particular care of the side bar with coloured buttons, as a part of my open source project RGB UI developed independently of the site itself, with the aim of obtaining a personal result reflecting my skills and taste.
This site has no statistics scripts and no advertisements, it only uses technical cookies, and it is developed according to HTML5 standards.
Who I am
My name is Luca Ghio and I'm 24 years old. I live in Montemagno, a small village lost in the Monferrato hills (in Italy).
My main interest is information technology: I like sitting at my desk in front of my computer, where I can best express my ideas and projects. My passion has always been programming: even before starting the university, I was programming by myself dabbling in small programs. It's been several years since I switched to GNU/Linux: I'm very happy to work on this operating system, and I feel perfectly at ease with KDE because it enables maximum system customization.
As a hobby I'm interested in music: I like playing clarinet because it has an agile, bright sound and a quite wide range. Besides some completely amateurish experiments, I'm currently serving in two marching bands, the Banda Musicale Fubinese and the Banda Musicale Comunale di Portacomaro; moreover for some years I was a member of the Banda Musicale Giovanile del Piemonte.
Since 2012 I'm administrator of WikiAppunti, the community where you can exchange university lecture notes related to the most varied topics. Moreover I occasionally contribute to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and its sister projects: I like thinking about a world where culture is freely available.
I also have approached myself to Interlingua, an artificial language less known than Esperanto, but developed with the purpose of being naturally understandable by native speakers of a certain set of European languages.
