The title means "Run-ups" in Italian. The book tells the story
of a young, talented mathematician who travels trough Italy
interviewing for jobs at various companies. During one of the
interviews he tells a skeptical would-be employer, an engineer,
about his thesis on the structure of symplectic groups; he also
describes his computer skills, the only ones that the employer
might have any actual interest in.
