About me

Luigino Viscione

I was born in Rome on 18 January 1980.

My passion for computers has been born since the age of 7 years. I often watched my father Antonio play Sargon II on Commodore VIC 20 for full nights.

My first contact with the computer chess was in 2001 and after in 2003 with the G-S.E.I. (an italian group of people dedicated to chess programming) and I was guided by Luca Dormio, author of LarsenVB.
