If I could change anything in the Backgammon world, I would... always have the best atmosphere possible. If everyone does their best, it's possible.

As journalist, I wrote many articles and surveys for Italian magazines and newspapers. I wrote also part of books (the Backgammon part) of Games Encyclopedia. I have to finish a new book regarding the Backgammon for neophytes.
