Massimiliano Stucchi

I joined the Internet Society in 2019 as Regional Technical Advisor in Europe. My work focuses on helping new Internet exchange points and community networks come to life in Europe and Central Asia, along with a lot of advocacy for MANRS and related data measurements.

My previous experiences are as a trainer and IPv6 program manager at the RIPE NCC, and before that I was the founder and technical director of a small Internet service provider and wireless Internet service provider in Northern Italy.

I am a long time Unix fellow, with a specific love for FreeBSD and OpenBSD, which I’ve been using for more than 20 years now. My interests cover BGP, Routing Security, RPKI, DNS, and of course, IPv6. When possible, I try to contribute to the development of these technologies by participating in the IETF.

In my past, I used to be an official football referee for the Italian Football Federation, but I quit when I moved to the Netherlands for work. Now, when I’m not in front of a keyboard, you can find me trying to get back in shape by running or mountain biking in the woods around my house or racing with remote-controlled cars.
