About Me

CS is now an YES-Profit organization...... I do prefer


*** NOT FOR SALE: please check this group if you want more information about my main photo: We are against CS becoming a for-profit corporation ***


Who am I? I am what I do. I am what I dream.

When I see my face through the mirror, I see only my surface. I can change some things I know are negative for myself (and for others maybe, too), but not everything. I came to this world into a specific vase (even if we all are in the same boat) and I cannot modify my ancestry and predispositions, and I cannot modify what this life will do to me.

Yes of course, I think we all decide our lives, but once you build a brick, you cannot control the others. So, this is a short wrote to understand what I really know I am: limited and, too many times, influenced mainly by the past.

Don't worry, I'm not a philosopher outside of time :) I like a lot writing. I feel myself much better with writing than words.

My personality is variegated and I'm proud to say that I still have inside of me a neverending true baby... with a lot of defects, sure =)


In general I'm solar and predisposed to socialize. But it depends of my mood, sometimes I need to stay with only myself. I like having fun with nice people and I love adventures like every child could do!

But I don't like too much chaos, specially in places indoor.

I don't eat animals since the end of 2009. Now I exclude any product that contains animal exploitation. I don't like labels, but I completely comprehend the vegan philosophy and I've joined it since 2012.
It started with this simply thought:

If I really love animals and I never could kill one of them, why I'm still eating them? And then: why I keep BUYING their lives (milk/meat/cheese there's no difference) without necessity?

You should inform yourself better on this.

On how their lives have been taken away from their nature. On how human being has taken away their lives, to our stupid voracity.

Today people eat, eat, eat a lot, and eat again but they really neither think nor know on what they're eating. This is absolutely crazy.

I'm really fascinated by the history of religions (even if I know they are a perfect control of minds). There is a highest sense of spirituality inside of me, but I prefer to say simply that I'm agnostic.

Anyway I'm particularly attracted to the buddhism Zen and to the Shamanism.
The anarchyst (or, better, antispecist) philosophy is my best thinking of love.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing





I'm really active and I love doing sport!

I like to play five-a-side football, extreme sports, Capoeira, Parkour, Trekking, Swimming, dancing, MTB, Critical Mass and so on.

Animals are one of the first things I live for.

I'm interested in actuality from all over the world, I love a lot of different music, making particulars photos, live concerts, contemplating nature, phytotherapy, vegetable garden.

Philosophy, astrology and mythology, cultural anthropology, psychoanalysis and esotericism (well, I would like to read more, but I'm too inconstant!) writing, sometimes drawing.

The human relations, the arts, to give aid, activism, defending the weakest and fighting for justice.

I also like original thoughts, over the lines, and everything isn't possible to explain with science or words :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

"I can't imagine people homeless,
but I see every day how they wander without destination
like desperates
they search roots and things
that ought give a sense of their life.
Poor white man,
in your violence
in your splendour
in all your wellbeing
you've lost your ancestry
and now you want mine
so take it,
I still have it."

John Twobirds Arbuckle


"Taki Unquy"


They've come with the cross
They've come to bounce us
The soldiers that obey to the priests.

Be the change you want to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi

Teach, Learn, Share

We can share everything you like and dislike! I love to have a lot of experiences, and I always love to share life with honest people.

If you'd like, I can teach you the Italian language (but to do this you should stay by us more than 1-2 would be fantastic make a cultural exchange, but we have to organize on this).
