Vittorio is a PhD palaeontologist with special interest in Cenozoic molluscs. He is always open to various research fields (from foraminifers to dinosaurs!) when involving palaeoecology and palaeo(bio)geography. His main work area is the Mediterranean Sea, trying to understand the Quaternary climate and biodiversity changes occurred in this basin. After working at the University of Palermo and at the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle (Paris), he co-founded Paleosofia-APEMA, which is engaged in the fields of research, conservancy and education.
