Mariano Tomatis Wonder Injector

He believes that the writer’s underlying purpose is the same as magician’s: to encourage people to approach life in a state of Wonder.
His activities as “technician of mystery” spring at the intersection of academical studies in mathematics and a passion for conjuring, philosophy and literature.
Michele Gianella TransladdicTED
In 2008, almost by chance, Michele clicked on a link about "ideas worth spreading". Soon, he found himself spending much of his free time at the “Brain SPA”, as TED is often nicknamed.
He joined the TED Open Translation Project one year later, since its very inception. Back then, there were only a dozen of Italian translators; but little by little, a lot of friends poured constantly in and now 330 people rank the Italian TED translators' community among the world's most active ones.
Later on, he also started sending a lot of emails to both new translators and Italian TEDx organizers, in order to introduce and connect each other. One day, he sent one of those emails to Ferdinando Buscema... and now he's here.
