"Se vive, se sufre, se aprende." ("Live and learn, but it hurts.")
I started teaching at Villanova University in Economics in 1978. I went to the University of California at Berkeley in 1980 - in Mexican History- was tenured there, and remained until 1989. I have done visiting stints at University of Texas - Austin and at Harvard.
I am a dual national (Italy/United States). In another life, I played jazz trumpet. I will again, some day, "si Dios quiere."
