Iacopo Spalletti

I founded Nephila in 2001 to pursue my passion for technology and the web. Since 2013, however, we've taken a new path in expanding the identity of Nephila and decided to grow and develop our company. Currently, I am a lead developer and I coordinate the technological development of the projects. I also lead the research and innovation activities. This allows me to participate to the open source community both through European conferences and by contributing writing code to many projects. If I'm not writing code you can find me in a pub, the place where I cultivate my passion for craft beers.

Emanuela Dal Mas

I joined Nephila after 8 years long collaboration as management consultant. I deal with business development and team management for my company and I coordinate digital marketing projects. I set work objectives and I usually involve everyone in my planning methods. I love talking but not beating around the bush. I capture my ideas in bullet points. I believe in investing energy in dialogue. I think this is a fundamental instrument to define and build up a unique strategy together with our customer. Besides being in the roller coaster of business and marketing, I love being in company of cats and adore organic products, Brunelleschi's Dome and travelling.

Leonardo Cavallucci

I joined Nephila in 2013, September. I am the wild-card member of the team. My hands are on wide range of work from web development projects, backend to front end and network support too. I am also the ‘James Bond’ of the company involved in rescue operations. Every day many guests of the University residences in Florence and troubled customers ask for help and I take care of them. I am a very patient person and willing to listen to the needs of others. I love to play the piano and to keep updated with worldwide e-sports scene.

Ambra Tonon

I joined Nephila in 2014, December. I work in the accounts department of the company and deal with invoices and bureaucratic stuff. I am also involved in the human resources management. My motto both in the personal and professional life is "order, neatness and discipline". Since I also love interacting with people so I keep up with the interpersonal relations both with my colleagues and our clients. You will see me drowned in the papers due to my short height! Swimming is one of my favourite activities. I am a skilled swimmer for more than 15 years now.

At Nephila I manage customer relationships, organize events, select and widespread promotional and informational materials furthermore I conduct market research. I carry out my work with determination and passion, never abandoning my combative style. I love contact with people, dialogue and exchange, which for me represent experience and cultural growth. I have an innate fascination for Florence, the art that permeates it is always enthralling me. I enjoy reading, travelling and outdoor sports: jogging, mountain bike and tennis are part of my everyday' s life!

Simone Petronici

At Nephila I deal with front-end and web design. I like to give vent to my creativity and my ideas but above all I like to study solutions in line with the customer's business goals. Professionalism, accuracy and availability are my basic principles. I constantly update  in order to keep up with the times and the latest technologies. Even in my spare time I never stop for a moment! I enjoy practicing combat sports and riding my bike around in search of breathtaking landscapes; I'm also really fond of music, animation and videogames: from the most recent releases to arcade classics such as Space Invaders and Tetris.

I arrived in Nephila in 2018 and I am part of the marketing and communication team. I deal with content management and digital marketing: I write, I post on social media and I manage SEO. Writing is the main focus of my work and I live it like a challenge, balancing different styles and words, depending on what I am writing about, I have learned it’s fun and challenging at the same time. As a professional writer I can’t stand people who mistreat the Italian language and I am very good at finding typos. On my spare time, I read dozens of books, go to concerts and go hiking. Reaching the top is priceless, almost like finding the perfect copy!

I started at Nephila in April 2019 and I am from Moscow, Russia. I am part of the technical team and mainly I am a backend developer but I can also work with frontend development. I really like Python and Django but I also like to experiment and try new technologies. I especially like tested and cleaned code, and that is why I work hard to write code that is both legible and well documented. Outside of work, I try to spend most of my free time with my son and my wife. I also enjoy skiing, cooking, watching tv shows and travelling with my family.
Fiorella De Luca

Fiorella De Luca

I have officially been in Nephila since 2018 and I am part of the technical team. I took my first steps in the company dealing with QA, finding bugs and proposing new fixes, as well as community management. Now, however,  I am a project manager and I am growing in this role but I haven’t forgotten my love for the community. I keep organizing events with enthusiasm because I strongly believe in the community and bringing people together especially towards the technological sector. I have always been fascinated by the programming and technological world and Nephila has helped me improve my skills and myself. I love travelling, partaking in conferences or meetups and meeting new people that I. I also like cooking, reading, walking by the sea, my dogs Molly and Lillo, but especially good food.

 

Cristiano Bianchi

I joined Nephila in October 2019 to be part of the technical team where I mainly deal with front end development. I am curious and methodical. I like when I can experience something new in the IT and when I can delve into what I already know. I am patient enough to enjoy analyzing problems and going deeper into details. When I'm not working, I follow non-tech interests. I am passionate about travelling and I love discovering the culinary specialties of the places I visit. I couldn't live without music, I play bass and enjoy watching movies, reading and playing board games.

I have been working in Nephila since October 2020. I am an administrative assistant and I am part of the helpdesk team. What I do is very interesting. I work with great commitment and passion, the same passion I feel when I leave for one of my travels around the world. In Alaska, for example, I left half of my heart. I also love to read, cook desserts and ride horses.

I came to Nephila in March 2021, taking up a challenge: to learn new technologies, Django and Vue.js, in order to become a full-stack developer. I have been working while finishing up my universities studies in Computer Engineering at the University of Florence, and I believe that studying and working is a privilege. I am an inquisitive, attentive guy who always tries to give the best in whatever he does, with passion and care. I like delving into new things and constantly learning, continually being faced with stimulating challenges! I love any sort of sport, both as a spectator and participant, and, above all, travelling so I can get to know places that are new and as untouched as possible.
