Born in Corrientes, Argentina, in 1950, Rubén Conti took his degree in pharmacy at the University of Buenos Aires. During his university years he got to know Magdalena, his co-student on the occasion of the examination in botany. It was a coup de foudre and so Magdalena and Rubén were married in 1974 and are still happily together.
Rubén worked for a time in the pharmaceutical industry in the Argentine capital after which, in 1981, he joined his parents in New York where he worked for some years as an art dealer in the market of the American metropolis, selling works of art. In New York Rubén also studied computer programming in depth which subsequently was the foundation for his present professional work.
He found his first definitive professional outlet in Italy, in Milan, where he relocated with his wife in 1984. He founded the Intersoftware company here, applying his experience of the pharmaceutical industry’s procedural methods. Using the new programming languages he, together with his wife, has created a management system for small and medium size companies, using innovative methods.
Rubén Conti has lent his voice to Ulysses and read the relevant verses (Hell, XXVI, 90-142) in the translation into Spanish by Bartolomé Mitre.
