Paola Arosio and Diego Meozzi|
Diego was born in Rome (Italy) in 1963 and he is a freelance journalist. Over the last 20 years he has written more than 2000 articles for several Italian magazines dealing with electronic music, computers, photography, video and astronomy. He is also a webmaster and a photographer. His photographs have been published on the cover of music, video and astronomy magazines, on the NASA website and on a Time & Life book. One of his Stones of Stenness images is on the cover of The Philosopher's Stone, Van Morrison's latest album. He is also a QTVR expert and he worked for FIAT and Alfa Romeo, making virtual movies of FIAT Multipla and Alfa 166. A few years ago he made some professional videos on Turkey and Portugal. Diego plays guitar and keyboards and he has a small recording studio (in his bedroom!). He has little time to play. But in 1993 he had the chance to work for Peter Gabriel's latest live album (Secret World Live), recording computer data from electronic instruments. Diego is fond of nocturnal birds, particularly nightjars, and he has published some research papers on this odd species.
We both enjoy computers and megalithic sites. During our holidays in Ireland (1989), Scotland (1990), Sardinia (1991), Southern England (1992), France (1996), Wales (1997), Apulia and Corsica (2000) and Sardinia again (2001) we took several thousands of pictures and collected a lot of information about local stone circles, dolmens and standing stones. After joining the Internet community - in 1995 - we decided to share the knowledge gained by our experience in those countries. And thus the Stone Pages were conceived...
We got married on September 4th, 1999 and we live now in Trevignano, a peaceful village on the lake of Bracciano,
about half an hour drive north of Rome. Our future projects will be new Stone Pages about Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Malta and Valcamonica (Italy). For SCRAN - a Millennium project to digitise Scotland's human history and material culture - we have created Ancient Stones of Scotland: a multimedia essay (CD-ROM and Web site) devoted to the Scottish megaliths.
