http://dipastro.pd.astro.it/~mattia from 4 August 2003 to 29 November 2003
http://astro.imperial.ac.uk/~vaccari from 29 November 2003 to 7 September 2007
and finally at

The signature "white text on dark-blue background" no-nonsense look & feel still dates back to September 1999 and was inspired by the Asiago Astrophysical Observatory web page (presumably created by Roberto), when and where "all this" got started.
