Italian TCS Presence at the ICM 2006

Today was a good day for Italian TCS at the International Congress of Mathematicians 2006. The inaugural talk in the section on Mathematical Aspects of Computer Science was delivered by Luca Trevisan (UC Berkeley). Luca's talk was based on the paper Pseudorandomness and Combinatorial Constructions.

Congratulations to Luca for being invited to deliver a talk at ICM 2006.

Question: How many Italian computer scientists have been invited speakers at the section on Mathematical Aspects of CS at the ICM so far?

I do not know the answer myself. Does any of my readers do?
