Brief C.V.

 

Born in Eritrea from Italian parents, he grew up in Italy and East Africa. After getting his medical degree in Milan, he practiced in Milan (human physiology), Eritrea (general, hospital based and ambulatory, Medicine and Surgery) Nigeria (primarily hospital based, including missionary locations, medicine and surgery/ obstetric).  While in Africa he published field research in African Tropical Medicine and ethnology/anthropology.  He moved to the USA over 40 years ago, completed a residency in Psychiatry at Yale, was part of Yale faculty while also Chair of Psychiatry at an affiliated Hospital. Eventually he moved to Philadelphia where he was a fulltime faculty member of Jefferson Department of Psychiatry for a decade, moving then to private practice while continuing his involvement in teaching and supervising the psychiatric residents.

He authored numerous publications in national and international journals, as well as books and book chapters.

His in-depth lengthy experiences with very diverse cultures have formed the platform of his ongoing interest and curiosity for the differences and commonalities that throughout history form the tapestry of a collective mind to which all individuals are linked and through which they interconnect.

(He directly experienced and lived through WWII in Northern Italy as a child, and through the savage Yoruba/Ibo Nigerian secession war in the middle sixties).
