About Me


New life in Basel


Hi, my name is Federico and I just moved to Basel for work. I'm italian, I love craft beer and international environments. Everything started with my erasmus in Budapest (Hungary) in the far 2008. There I learned what does it mean to meet people from all around the world and I heard about CS for the first time. Since then, a lot of new friends, many guests and hosts and a 45days-trip around Europe contributed to change my life and make myself become what I am now.
After university I started to work in Milan, where i lived for 2 years. Now it's time to change and i'm very excited about starting a new life in Basel which seems to be a very international town!


If you're nice with people, people will be nice with you

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Making new friends!


I started hosting in my hometown Ferrara, then i surfed a lot in 2011 during my postgraduation travel.
In Milan I had a few guests but then I stopped hosting when I moved to a new tiny flat where there was not enough space.
Now I'm restarting in Basel! :)


I love meeting new people and share experiences with them. I love listening to music and sometimes playing it with my piano while singing loudly (for the happiness of my neighbors. I'm not so good, actually). I'm deeply attracted from everything about science and i really love food (eating and cooking), beer and wine.
I recently started running 10km runs. I also enjoy doing karate and other sports as football, volley etc.

Music, Movies & Books

Gogol Bordello, Franz Ferdinand, Blur, Parov Stelar, Two Door Cinema Club
