STEFANO SILVESTRI
GENERAL MANAGER

Born in 1970, he waited all of his childhood waiting for something more fun than ring-around-the-rosey and jump rope. His faith was rewarded by video games, which he followed since their beginning. Soon after his tenth birthday he finds himself in the hi-fi department at Metro, explaining Donkey Kong’s Game & Watch, still japanese at the time, to the curious clients. His career as “video game populizer” starts here. The passage from black and white video games to the ones we know today has been studded by everything playable that ever existed in the last 30 years. Since 1995 he was able to make a living out of video games journalism, with stubbornness and recklessness.
