Riccardo Ortolan
Riccardo graduated!

Born in Rome the 24/10/1985, city where I grew up and where I left a whale of a heart. In Rome I graduated in Computer Science at the university of Roma Tor Vergata, after that I was admitted to attend the University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Norway, where I completed the master degree in Information Systems. If you are interested in my professional life and in my CV, I suggest you to take a look at the work section of my site.


Today I live in Melbourne, Australia, where I work since March 2013 as Software developer at Lab Group. I worked since June 2011 as system and web developer at Bennett, the biggest communication and advertising agency in Norway outside Oslo. I was hired months before having finished my master degree thanks to the trust given to me by this company, where I was the only foreign employee! :)

Melbourne, Australia

Once Erasmus..

Always erasmus! I did the Erasmus (European student exchange program) and it changed my life. I’m sure you heard about both Erasmus, and how it changes people’s life. And I’m sure, as well, that if you don’t know about it, it’s impossible to explain. The pleasure of suddenly being in situations where you are the only foreigner, the ability to easily get out of problems, going out with a foreign girl, being extremely social in any circumstances, led me to not being scared of facing any problem, in seeing different cultures as opportunities, in loving travelling and be confronted by new challenges. …It simply taught me to live life.

The future

Definitely will be entrusted by the inspiration, but as a good book author taught me, I hear the calling of the wild!
