Blog It Forward – Andrea Olivieri
Just before my first business trip to the United States my great friend and colleague Ivan Femia BIFed me, so here I am writing my BIF.
It’s very difficult for me describe myself in a few words.
I started working with SAP in 1994 and currently, I’m employed as a SAP NetWeaver Solution Architect in Techedge, an Italian service company located in Milan.
I love ABAP and working with smart people like my colleagues that have nicknamed me as ABAPNinja.
I consider myself a lucky man; I love my family, my job and the Hard&Heavy music. Kiss are my favorite band
I was born 45 years ago in Porto San Giorgio, a little town of the Marche region that is located on the Adriatic Sea and famous for the Giant Frying Pan of the Adriatic,
The Giant Frying Pan of the Adriatic has a diameter of 4 meters with the capacity of a 1000 L of oil. It is used during regional festivals such as the Festival of the Sea that typically takes place the last week of July. During the festival seafood is prepared for the public within few hours a hundred kilos of fried calamari are ready thanks to the giant frying pan.
However the food in Porto San Giorgio is not just fish… do you know the famous “Olive all’ascolana”?
My relatives were fishermen and restaurateurs, and so it is natural that I like good food, but also hate cooking and this is the reason why I know a lot of restaurants.
So If you come to Italy, probably I could also recommend to you a good restaurant.
I grew up in San Donato Milanese (Milan), a village in the hinterland of Milan, where the headquarters of ENI, where my father worked.
I live in the part closest to Linate airport where the planes touching the houses before landing. For this reason one of my favorite games was to guess the airline and the type of aircraft based on the sound.
I graduated in computer science in high school, I started working, then, when I was 35, I moved to the other side of Milan, Arese, where I started a family.
