Once upon a time, or perhaps now, A World Wide Web depiction of Roberto Quaglia was born in front of your eyes. Now that you've hit it, you have to deal with different choices. The wisest way to proceed is to read everything that follows. The easiest way to proceed is to just click somewhere. The laziest way to proceed is to die.

Something looking like
a little biography of RQ

In 1962 Roberto Quaglia came into this world not being able to return to the other. So he decided to settle down here. In the beginning he grew up not forgetting to gain the correct stature and then lose his surplus quantity of hair. But before all this he managed to occupy his space-time in "varied and various" ways.
First he amused himself with photography and the end-product of his researches was published, unexpectedly, in major European magazines and rashly shown in various exhibitions. Then, tired of giving excessive significance to a few square centimetres of emulsion-developed paper, he swore allegiance to the theatre and the organization of cultural events, fields in which he has distinguished himself in the city.
One fine day, giving in to an unexpected impulse, he created a series of comic-strips called "The Planet of the Computers", subsequently published in the Italian magazines "Bit" and "Microcomputer".
But it was only when he suddenly noticed he was in reality a writer that he finally noticed he was in reality a writer.
From then onwards, as every writer, he has above all written, neglecting - in his most obsessive moments - to live, but managing to survive all the same.

Roberto Quaglia is, today, one of the most promising of the Italian science fiction writers. Without doubt he's the most irreverent and iconoclastic. He has written two novels, a collection of stories, a television serial and various science fiction plays. He collaborates as well with noted Italian magazines as a humorous writer.
His texts are powerful in their disrupting, desecrating vein and their cynical modern black humour, both of which give a distinctive mark to a good part of his writings. Surprisingly for the author, they have become a cult in various literary circles.

He has written among other things a lot of things.

Roberto Quaglia is one of the most interesting Italian writers. He writes SF and surrealistic fiction. From '95 to '97 he has been Counsellor in the city of Genova, Italy.

What follows is a list of coherent lists of words put down by me. In a less tortuous way we could say the following stuff are articles of mine. In fact it's just written space, even if it's not clear how it can be a space. (Is there really "space" in Internet ? And if there is, where is it ?)


"Pensiero Stocastico" (Stochastic Thought) is a continuosly growing collection of short articles of mine, which I write monthly for the Italian Cyberzine Delos. The theme? Reality and its surprizing surroundings. In fact, we could argue that only the surroundings of reality in reality exist... All pieces are on Italian. Not all Italians are in pieces.
