Hi! My name is Filippo and I will be your guide during the International Chemistry Olympiads. I’m Italian and I study chemistry at the University of Oxford.

In high school I used to compete in Chemistry Olympiads like you, I participated in the 49th and 50th IChO. Fun fact: I am probably the only guide that hasn’t been to Paris yet. My hobbies include listening to classical music, playing football and basketball, playing computer games and running. I also have extensive experience in building all sorts of dangerous bombs, rifles and rockets with chemicals.

I can’t wait to meet you. See you soon in Paris!
