My name is Giuseppe Civitarese (aka Pino), from Visintini, Italy. I am an oceanographer, and in my second life I am a card models builder and designer. My passion for paper modelling began in 2000, when I decided to build a paper castle for my little nephew Matteo. Later, Matteo never built any paper model. On the other hand, since then I've never abandoned this hobby. My specific interest is in designing paper automata, and terrestrial and celestial globes from digital replicas of antique maps.
