About me

lorenzo clementi

My name is Lorenzo Clementi, I'm 40 years old and I live in Gordola (Switzerland) with my wife Wendy and our daughter.

I grew up between Capriasca and Lugano. As a boy I spent my summers in Olivone (Rivöi), in the Blenio Valley, which is still my starting point for many adventures in the mountains.

Studies and work

I work in the Radar, Satellites and Nowcasting Group (MDR) at MeteoSwiss in Locarno-Monti. We are responsible for the Swiss weather radar network and are in charge of processing satellite and lightning data. We are active in the nowcasting of precipitation and thunderstorms.
In 2008 I obtained a MSc in Computer Science (major) and Geography at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland).


I like open air sports, especially in the mountains: I regularly practice some mountaineering, mountain-biking and trekking in summer, ski touring in winter (see for example #montagna and #skimo). Sometimes I participate to a trail running event (for exemple #running).
I like traveling and I'm very fond of open-source software development.

In 2003 I established the page www.sosto.net that since 2006 has become a blog where I post mostly reports about excursions in the mountains of Ticino.
