Dr. Andrea Rossi, CEO, Leonardo Corporation, USA.
Born in Milan in 1950, the future physicist was familiar with metal carpentry from his childhood, when he was working with Luigi Rossi, his father. That’s when he learned to use major carpentry machinery and that’s where he got his start as a machine designer and builder, working in his father’s machine shop. That is where his first seeds of love for machinery and his first fascination for complex mechanisms were birthed. In school he decided to continue on his path of learning as much as he about particularities of the complex world of science, by enrolling in the philosophy college. He wanted to know the intricacies of physics from mathematical and philosophical point of view. At the age of 23 Andrea Rossi completed his study at the University of Milan, having written and defended the thesis on the topic of Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and how it relates to the Phenomenology of Husserl.
