I was born on
December 23rd, 1966
, in Imperia (Liguria, Italia), on the
Tyrrhenian sea, near the bordeline with France. I lived and
studied there until I was eighteen.
I went to Genoa (Genova), where I attended the
University. I earned my degree on
November 23rd, 1989
defending a Master thesis in Computational Number Theory
(in Italian). About a year later I
moved to Turin (Torino), for my Ph.D. studies under the direction of
Alberto Perelli, and I successfully defended my Doctoral thesis
in Rome in
January 27th, 1996.
Then I had several grants from the C.N.R.
and a postdoctoral grant by the University of Genova. In
I won a competition for a position as Assistant Professor
(Ricercatore) in Padua (Padova), officially in the subject of
Mathematical Analysis, since Number Theory, as such, is unknown to
the Italian legislator. I moved there soon afterwards.
I am one of the participants of the Erasmus Mundus Master
program ALgebra, Geometry And Number Theory (ALGANT)
by the Universities of Bordeaux, Leiden, Paris Sud (Paris 11) and Padova, see
I wrote, jointly with my colleague and friend Alessandro
Zaccagnini, a book on Cryptography:
A. Languasco, A. Zaccagnini -
Introduzione alla Crittografia
Ulrico Hoepli Editore, 2004 (Italian).
I won a competition
for the habilitation (idoneità)
as Associate Professor in Mathematical
Analysis and in
I was hired as such from the Faculty of Statistical
Sciences, University of Padova.
Some years ago V.Masotti and L.Accomazzi
interviewed me in their radio program "Il sommergibile".

Steganography" (in Italian on the RTSI radio station),
