About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Internship in Paris!

ABOUT ME

I'm quite an eclectic person. I play guitar and I'm trying to learn the piano as well, I love every kind of art.
I'm studying Philosophy at university, trying to understand what I'll do when I grow up, and I am an intern under CNRS, ENS and Paris III, in an international research group about « Identification / empathie / projection au cinéma et au théâtre ».
I also work as production manager and photographer for an Italian gipsy jazz band (www.woodygipsyband.com), with whom we recorded a live album in London!
I obviously like travelling and meeting new people of different culture.

PHILOSOPHY

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

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.»

Interests

Music above all, together with Cinema.

Music, Movies & Books

Pavese, Tabucchi, Vázquez Montalbán, Richler, etc.

My favourite movies are: "The science of sleep", "Stranger than fiction, "Amarcord", "La voce della luna" and many others.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most beautiful place I've seen is the city of Palmyra, with a great archeological site in the middle of Syrian desert.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to learn as many different language as possible, broadly speaking I like to learn new things about music, movies, art in general!
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.
