The team

Professionalism and excellence always depend on people. Check out who's whom in our team:  each one contributes to the success of a project through their own passions, interests and know-how.

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 arrived in Nephila in April 2019 and I’m the youngest of the group. I work with helpdesk job in the technical department and I am studying to become a system engineer.When people call, they are usually very frantic and in dire need of help with the technological issues they are facing, and I believe that technology shouldn’t have to be stressful as it is everywhere around us. Playing a part in assisting people in making their lives easier puts me into a greater state of mind, since lending a hand is the best service a person could give. My strengths are versatility, learning at a fast pace, and always putting my best foot forward. In my free time, I coach a football team for young kids in Florence, where I instill positive and genuine values to my team with the same passion that I was given by my coaches from when I played.

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.

Laura Bartoli

I joined Nephila in 2014. I am an editor and I deal with all those elements which concern content management, from texts to multimedia contents. I am the backstage star dealing with content building, retrieving and reconstructing information and I have special liking for cataloguing. My education background in journalism plays a key role in my job. By nature, I am an inquisitive person and I am passionate about photography. I have been inseparable from my old camera. The photos you see in this website are taken by me!

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.

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.

At Nephila, I am working on my programming and developing skills, I am a front-end developer and I am part of the helpdesk team. I had studied languages and I work with our German customers. I am interested in the IT world and about science as well. I like to learn new programming languages and to understand how it works so that I can improve my coding skills. Beyond IT and science, I really enjoy watching TV shows (I watch too many of them), I like to play video games and during the summer I really enjoy walking in nature.

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!

Sergey Fedoruk

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, but as a community manager I have been working with the team for longer. I work with everything about QA, I find bugs, suggest new fixes and I am the nightmare of my programmer colleagues. In the meantime, I am valiant to organize events 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 am 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.
