About Me

I'm a 25 yo videomaker and illustrator, trying to find my way here in Milan. Smile!

Used to be an intern under CNRS, ENS and Paris III, in an international research group about « Identification / empathie / projection au cinéma et au théâtre ».


Bill Hicks was definitely right: "It's just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace."

From the Chaplin's masterpiece "The great dictator": «I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.»

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

"Be not inhospitable to stranger lest they be angel in disguise." (George Whitman)


Music above all, together with Cinema.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a thing for detective stories.

Now reading Demian by Hesse.

Best movie ever: «8 e mezzo» (Fellini)

Best 2016 movie: «Perfect Day» (León de Aranoa)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had the luck to visit Palmyra before the war in Syria. That's an incredible place, a great archeological site in the middle of the desert.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to learn as many different language as possible, broadly speaking I'm always up to learn new stuff.

Everything you can teach and share will be appreciated, in return I can teach you the basis of guitar or how to cook a tasty italian dish.
