Fabrizio Fanti: Via del Tamburino 69, I-53040 Piazze (SI), Italy.
Fabrizio Fanti was born on 12.19.1976 in Sarteano (Tuscany, Siena, Italy). Shortly thereafter, he became fascinated with nature surrounding him, chocolate and Inter Football Club. Intolerant to the study as it is set in Italian schools, he completed very strict Italian Accounting courses with high grades. He immediately became interested in natural sciences, focusing particularly in zoology. After a fortuitous meeting with a friend, he started studying worldwide occurrences of Cantharoidea, both living and fossilized. This is the field where I intend to become a specialist.
