About Me


Be Happy! Happiness is everywhere!!


I am fun, creative, honest and absolutely excited about life and little nice things can make us happy! I am a curious person, may be due to my scientific background, I love to know and tell stories, to meet people, because I think it is the beginning of a fantastic trip to know more about ourselves. I talk a lot, I cant live without talking, you should kick me on my head to stop it! :-) But at the same time, I can say that I try to find a sort of equilibrium and I have my moments of hard thinking, searching always for new ideas! This is just what came up in my mind to write about myself, the rest you will discover it!
I enjoy also to know the places of people visit my couchsurfing-page! :-)

We dont have to divide any feelings or anything, but live life as one incredible and amazing experience!
You have to imagine an island to make this island possible, a real place to be! I am a dreamer...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love the idea of this couchsurfing project and I will do all my best to contribute to make couchsurfing very well known all over the world!


I had several couchsurfing experiences and all these gave me something beautiful that I can take with for my life, it is a fantastic idea the possibility to know people from all around the world and exchange several opinions taking into considerations the cultural differences!
I have hosted and surfed in different countries here in Europe!
I have organized the first three CS meetings for the Carnival in Sciacca on 2007, 2008 and 2009!
I have organized the CS pre-party meeting in Barcelona (Spain) on the 30 of december 2007! I have organized other small meetings in Sciacca and around!
I am planning to organize other CS meetings and of course to host and surf other couches around the world!


Cooking any kind of food...even if Arancine are the best ones! :-)

Enjoy life drinking a nice coffee with friends or staring at the sun in a beach, reading, doing sports, travelling, dancing (salsa and merengue!)...
I am interested and also involved in environmental consulting projects, as scientist I work on projects for the reduction and re-use of wastes, for the improvement and the protection of our planet!
I support projects like the "zero waste" strategy for a more sustainable world.
You can find several informations on this website:
I love chemistry and I am working actually on the public image of chemistry in the society and to teach chemistry in a funny way to kids and young students. I have a blog about chemistry and not only chemistry!
I am interested in buddhism, taoism and zen, I love the connections between them and the modern physics!

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite movies at the moment are "Le conseguenze dell'amore" and "L'amico di famiglia" from P. Sorrentino! You have to watch them, absolutely great!
I hear any type of music, from hard rock to pop (english and italian ones) and lyrics.
Of course, you have to stare at the music of one of our best sicilian singer...Roy Paci...Here I add something from the concert was in Sciacca:
I love reading also and Bruce Chatwin is one of my favourite writers

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

Share.....Wow! It is the future! The knowledge is really important and the opportunity to share informations and experiences can improve and grow up our mind and thoughts. I am a chemist and I can share all my science :-) As a normal chemist, I love to mix and formulate, so cooking is a must and I can also teach how to cook italian and not only italian food with this sort of creativity and scientific way. I am interested in art and history and I will love to learn a lot of languages.
I can share also my ideas about environmental problems affecting our world and of course some ways to resolve them!
