Since 2005 he's a member of the EPO's Klub Marco Polo (European Patent Office , Munich , Germany).

He always supported the idea of using a more rational , easier , and pragmatic Venetian writing style  , in 2005 he invented and implemented his own writing system expressely designed to be used in IT and mobile applications , the GVS (Grafia Veneta Silvestri).

The first software entirely using the GVS system was Mozilla Firefox 1.0 which is available for download in this site..
