About Me


I am traveling around the US covering 2012 presidential election for Italian newspapers


I'm down to earth, friendly, I like to have beer with friends and talk to everyone. I've been living in New York for three years now, trying to describe the US to Italians. But New York is not America and that's why I am here on Couch Surfing: I want to travel and see places I dreamt of and places I never heard of. By far my favorite corners of America are the beach between the Golden Gate and downtwon, in San Francisco, a dirty bar in the heart of Brooklyn, in New York, and the Marriott Hotel of Des Moines, in Iowa, where I've been very close to the New York Times!


I always try to do more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't have a house in this moment, but everytime I'm in Italy I have plenty of space in my house.


I always loved to host people and see the world through other people's eyes, but I am a beginner on CS website.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing things I saw is probably the sea of Greece. At least it's the first amazing thing I can think of.

While I was living in Paris, and my girlfriend was in Lisbon, I took a plane in the early morning, landed in Lisbon at 9am and I brought her fresh croissant from Paris for breakfast. She didn't know I was going there.
