Paolo Wolly Valenti

For some time he had been suffering from an ugly modern disease with which he lived with great serenity and dignity.

Developer, organizer, trainer, creator of events with a volcanic mind and a true pioneer of what would later become the most widespread and used CMS in the world.

We'll miss him.
