About Me


I like to think that in one of my past lives I used to be a Renaissance's starchitect or something in the same league as that, then the evolution of my soul started going backward because of my licentious conduct.


Basically, not much typical italian. Just the good things. I travelled Europe, I got my degree and I moved to Rome but working in a city with two subway lines for more than six million people, no way. So I moved to Milan. Good subway, too many people that feel way cooler than you. I spent about 7 months in USA too. Meanwhile I shot some short movies, won some prize and made some payed work. Then, I went back home.

Right now I'm trying to find my way. That's it. The end. Really, I'm not doing the "it's-hard-to-talk-about-myself" thing.

OTHER STUFF: Sporadic workout Chilling with a beer I used to play bass in a post-rock band Taking funny pictures when I travel Taking extremely cool pictures when I travel Eating all kind of local stuff, I usually appreciate rare cooked animals. I hang out whenever possible.


I go with the flow and I stand up for what I think is right.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host people, I'm hosted when I travel, I'm going to meetings sometimes. I try to stay in the CS spirit as much as possible: you know interesting people, you are connected with with a sporadic little part of humanity for a while, hopefully you will see them again but doesn't matter if that doesn't happen. You can use this experience for personal growth, or not, it's up to you. In a certain sense, it's a lifestyle.


I got to know CS in 2008 in New York where I had a lot of couchsurfing parties and free drinks nights. Back to sicily I started surfing and hosting with the Palermo couchsurfing community. Since then I've been hosting lot of people in Letojanni, Sicily and I've been hosted all around Europe and USA. I go to couchsurfing events too, especially when they are cool.

I used to do home brewing and I'm interested in cocktails as well.
