Salvatore Aranzulla

Salvatore Aranzulla (born 1990)[1][2] is a blogger and an Italian entrepreneur[3][4].

He is considered a well-known[5][6][7] popularizer[3] and author of problem solving tutorials for information technology (especially software) by the general Italian public.[8] According to different sources, he is the most famous [9] [10][11] or influential[12] one in the field and a central figure to part of the audience.[13][14][15][16][17]

Early life and education[edit | edit source]

He was raised in the Sicilian hamlet[18] of Mirabella Imbaccari[19] by parents Giovanni and Maria in a family of four children (his three brothers are Giuseppe, Davide ed Elia)[5][20]. His father was a nurse and the mother a housekeeper.[5][21] He attended the scientific high school in Piazza Armerina.[22]

In 2008 he moved to Milan[23] to study at Bocconi University[24], where he graduated in 2015.[20]

Website[edit | edit source]

When he was 12, he started reading through the net and soon he began looking after a newletter[25] and a blog[3][24] where he published practical advice on solving computer problems[26][27], thus becoming the youngest popularizer in Italy.[18] As a teenager, he was also active as a bug hunter for some major websites and web browsers.[28][25][29]

His blog had already about 300,000 readers monthly between 2007 and 2008. When Aranzulla needed money to go to the University, he installed Google Ads.[6][30]

In 2016 the readers became 9 million every month, with 20 million page views, and about 500000 every day in 2015[31] and 2018[2][24] thanks to an accurate use of SEO.[21][19][32][32]

In 2018 the website ranked in the top 30 in Italy[5][23] (first in the general field of "Information Technology"[3][27] and with a 40% quota of the "computer news" sector[26]) and in March 2019, it ranked 57th in Italy.[33]

The company, whose sole shareholder is Aranzulla itself, closed 2014 with a turnover of one million euros,[34] than 1,6 million in 2016.[26] In 2017 the annual turnover was two million[23][17] and in 2019 three million.[35] In 2018 the company has a staff of eight people.[6]

Other activities[edit | edit source]

He also wrote the technology column on the web portal Virgilio.it from 2008[28][21] to 2015.[36] In 2016 he started a cooperation with the national newspaper Il Messaggero.[36]

Deletion of article on Italian Wikipedia[edit | edit source]

In 2016 year his page on Italian Wikipedia was removed because he was not considered sufficiently relevant. He replied by calling Italian Wikipedia users who proposed his deletion "low-class competitors and sore losers".[37] The page was previously deleted 12 times over a period of 10 days in 2006, because it kept being rewritten probably by himself or close acquaintances.[38]

The debate about the deletion became viral.[39] On Il Gazzettino, Il Foglio and La Stampa the deletion was described in a critical way.[40][21][7]. It was also noted that the deletion was originally requested by a possible direct competitor. [7]

Awards and honours[edit | edit source]

In 2018 the website obtained a special recognition for best website by the comune of Perugia at the 2018 Macchianera awards in Perugia[41]

In February 2019, he received the Candelora d'Oro from the comune of Catania.[13][42][43]

In popular culture[edit | edit source]

In 2017 he had a cameo in the music video of the song In the town of Gabry Ponte and Sergio Sylvestre.[44] In 2018 he dubbed a pop-up in the Italian version of Ralph Breaks the Internet.[45] and he was also the Italian poster person for the Netflix television series Black Mirror.[1][26][46]
