I''m really wondering how he's dealing with the strict lock-down in Italy,
Since in Milan is quite hard to go out without a valid reason, he must be camping inside his lab to accomplish so many activities.
Another options is that he's working at home in the garage or a in dedicated corner of the living room.
Not that impossible. Isn't Parkhomov working in his bedroom?
Many people (ECW) acknowledge that Rossi is brilliant. A Leonardo da Vinci figure. He has mastered and made disruptive innovations in physics (JONP) technology (electricity generation from plasma, and earlier, although not productionised, inertial thrust and tunable light from plasma). Before his recent prolific and extraordinary period he has a history of inventing disruptive technology (Cheap thermoelectric generators of much higher than typical efficiency).
What I think some people are forgetting is that Rossi always moves on. Not content with past glories, he is willing to embrace the next technology. In these COVID times I suggest he has done just that. In fact the clue to his new triumph comes from his recent "ballerina" demo. He has been working on virtualising the e-cat, and now perhaps has succeeded. I don't think he will say this: such a revolutionary and valuable concept would quickly be picked up by his many competitors with deep pockets, so he will naturally be coy. But those of us who follow his work closely can read the runes. He may have advanced so far that his current R&D is entirely virtual, with no physical equipment required at all. Just think of the advantages of this!
He is truly a Rennaissance man, but suffers from a character defect that prevents him from actually profiting, in any way, from any of his inventions. That means we should not expect the wider world to appreciate his achievements. But perhaps in these COVID times the importance of a 100% virtual power source will be so large that one or more of his brilliant and large (was it 70 or 80?) development team, all now no doubt working virtually, will break the secret for the good of the world. We can hope.
