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.
In
November 1985
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
[D1]
(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
[D2]
(in Italian)
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
1998
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.
Starting
from 2004
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
http://lauree.math.unipd.it/algant/
.
In
2004
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).
In
June 2006
I won a competition
for the habilitation (idoneità)
as Associate Professor in Mathematical
Analysis and in
October 2006
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".
