Why ‘Urbino’?

Urbino is a small hill town in Italy, region Le Marche, of which the historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site. However, even though the website name and the images on this page may suggest differently, this website is not about the city Urbino.

Back in 2014 I switched to a different Internet service provider. Because my e-mail address was in the service provider’s domain, I also had to change my email address. So I had to inform many dozens of people about this email change and to update about a hundred email addresses for registrations, subscriptions, etc. To avoid ever having to do this again, I decided to use a personal Internet domain. It should preferably have a name that I can easily communicate with other people, some of whom speak different languages, without having to spell it to avoid writing mistakes. The name “urbino” has this quality – and it offers a nice reminder of visits to a beautiful and pleasant Renaissance city.
