About Me


Adelante siempre! :)


Hi! I'm Italian, I live in NYC since December 2008, and I love this city because I feel like at home!!! What can I say about me?? not easy. Probably that I'm respectful, open minded, sincere, and sometime I could seem a bit shy. I love to travel, and I think one life it is not enough to see this wonderful world....


Demanding an explanation can be pointless, as they may not know why they behaved that way themselves. Love, forgiveness, letting go, peace

You can't solve a problem by staying in the same energy in which it was created.

Don't let dreams be dreams...

Always think that something amazing is gonna happen..

Non rendere una priorità chi ti considera solo un'opzione.

Domani e' il primo giorno del resto della tua vita, non l'ultimo della vita che hai gia' vissuto
Translation: "Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life, not last one of the life you already had" (VZ)

You dropped something...
Your smile.. :)
