An interview with Antonio Frongia
Question: Hi, very nice to meet you. Wanna tell us a bit about yourself?
Answer: Sure! I was born in Italy, but during the last 17 years, I lived in Spain, UK, Germany and the US. I speak Italian, English, Spanish. At school, I studied things like Ancient Greek and philosophy, and I graduated in Literature. Immediately after University, I worked as a freelance translator, but I have been working in IT for the last eight years.
Q: Why such change?
A: Mmmhhh... let me think. First of all the money in IT is considerably more attractive than working in a school; the other reason is that I love technology.
Q: And now strategy. Why?
A: Advertising has always been a thing to me, but the primary driver is that people and human behaviour fascinate me.
Q: Can you explain more in detail?
A: Of course. I genuinely believe that every person is unique, but at the same time we all follow specific behavioural patterns and fall into one particular macro-category. Hence the desire of understanding and being able to influence those behaviours.
Q: Tell us one thing that you love.
A: I am a passionate scuba-diver. I love the ocean and what's inside. I am also a sharks preservation activist.
Q: And now something that you hate...
A: Cheese, of course! I hate lactose and all its derivates.
Q: An Italian who doesn't eat cheese? That's weird!
A: Not so strange. Actually, we represent 2,5% of the entire population. We are more than just a weird niche market, right?
Q: Well, I guess you are right! Do you want to add anything else for the people who will be reading this?
