Thanks for answer! I didn't think in the twoside, now I understand
what is the problem:
The article has only one page, therefore I will see never "Biography"
in the heading, in this case the problem was resolved.

Now if I want to have headings so on the left and right, in only one
page, how do I do?

Thanks again
