About Me

Openminded and easy going (but short-tempered too), honest and reliable. Observer, thoughtful, witty and sensitive but able to be frozen too, capable of a surreal immagination (..."schizoid"). Sportsman.
Love hiking in the mountains, staring at the sea during the sunset, closing my eyes while listening to music, talking about life with my dearest friends, feeling alive.
City or countryside? no doubt: countryside.
Staring at an I-phone or looking beyond the window? The second.
Talking or listening? The second.
Mean of transport: bike. But what about walking?
I don't smoke, never got drunk. I don't have a television, but I love cinema.

I build houses raising walls made with straw bales as bricks

I also teach what I've learnt in my activity, during courses on purpose.
That's how I'm trying, with my job, to give my contribution in the direction of a more respectful footprint on our planet,

PHILOSOPHY
Quello che penso è il mio pensiero. Quello che sento è il mio sentiero.
Systemic Weltanschauung
Deep Ecology
"wondering Wanderer"
MOST OF ALL: KEEP GOING IN SEARCHING AND SEARCHING...but what...what was I searching for? For what? Why? I got lost!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

once, at three o' clock in the night, police rang the bell of our house. they were searching for me...

I've flown many times, with my own body and no tools, nothing to help me, over my town. Then, everytime I come back into "awakes' world".

I've seen a ghost and an angel, and I wasn't sleeping. I swear!

Teach, Learn, Share

Share is one of life's keyword.
Teaching is another way of learning, via sharing.
Learning should be a humble attitude.
