About Me

Easygoing, patient, curious like a monkey. If i could i'd travel forever! I love to learn things, to see places and to listen to stories.

--- May 2018 --- Currently working on some videos in French. Help from French speaking guests would be very much appreciated! ---

"La vita non va allungata, va allargata" = "Life is not to be extended, it's to be enlarged". In Italian "Life" = "Vita" = "Waistline"!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosting and being hosted i've been meeting wonderful people around Europe, middle east, southeast Asia and Australia. This website has raised my trust in mankind.

I ain't exactly a night owl so if you're looking for a party guy i'm not your man. I enjoy doing sports and outdoorsy stuff. Around Bologna there are places i know quite well and places i love. If you're looking for good food i can give some advice or, better, join you! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Rock'n'Roll and Musicals/Opera - Documentaries and Tarantino - Essays and Travel guides!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Interviewing a sorcerer on how to cure diarrhea.

Supplì and sfogliatelle next to a minefield.

Driving around playing loud illegal rock music in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Chatting over tea with a bunch of hunters in the middle of a sub-equatorial jungle.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not a great cook but i can definitely share some good italian recipes. I know it's a cliché but i love spaghetti!

Moreover i've just learned how to count to 10 in Chinese using one hand! But i actually don't know for how long i'm gonna remember this stuff.. :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Well, I got a sh load of knowledge to share about my country!

1. Spaghetti bolognese ain't no real thing. In bologna you're supposed to order "tagliatelle al ragù"
2. Real sicilian sweets (cannoli, granita, etc.) are rare commodities outside Sicily. So don't be fooled!
3. In Italy we got a simple hand motion to say WTF!
