Professor Giovanni Pastore (1954, Rotondella - Basilicata, Italy), received his degree in mechanical engineering at Turin Polytechnic University in 1978. Even before graduating he was offered a contract at Fiat Mirafiori in Turin, where for the following five years he worked at the automotive design office, dealing with structural calculations.

Some years later he was recalled to duty, at the same plant, for technical updates and degree advancements.
