My name is Luigi Cavalieri. I am a software developer living in Roccagloriosa, a small hill village, in southern Italy, where olive trees outnumber inhabitants and fireflies still flicker.


I share my daily life with my family, three mixed-breed dogs and three pond slider turtles that sometimes taste my fingers — apparently there is also a family of bats dwelling under my roof.


Apart from diving into pages of code, I love baking bread, pruning fruit trees and growing the small vegetable garden in my backyard.


After some time working on Mac apps, in 2012 I launched SiteTree, a WordPress plugin that started as an unassuming open source project to become a strong helping hand during a tough digression of my life. Today I think of it as an ever-improving part of me.
