THE TWO FOUNDERS

Maurizio Ferrari graduated in Bologna in spring 1990 with a dissertation on "software assisted automatic calculations of design parameters of a radial engine", under the mentoring of Franco Rocchi (former Ferrari lead designer). His interest in software pushed him to write code on a vast array of computers ranging from the Cray X-MP 48 to the early Microchip PIC. He joined Magneti Marelli in 1993 and later Ferrari F1 where he held a position as designer of the Engine Control unit firmware, porting in first person most of the V12 F1 engine to the V10 in the ‘90s, and was also responsible for the deployment of software versioning system. He wrote two articles published by Circuit Cellar. Speaks fluent English and Spanish, decent French and some German. He's often travelling to the Far East for manufacturing reasons.

Maurizio Gibertoni graduated cum laude in Bologna in 1986 with a dissertation on circuit simulation. He held positions in academic research institutes (in Trento and Bologna), presenting papers on digital circuits at important international conferences (ESSCIRC 1991). He later joined the private industrial sector where he held a position as chief designer for industrial sensors at a leading industry who later hired him as consultant. Within Galileo he deals mostly with hardware design and production of Galileo's own products.
