About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live the life you love. Love the life you live

ABOUT ME

Hard to say. Hard to choose what to put first. I basically love to have fun, meeting interesting and friendly people from everywhere and sharing experiences, maybe travelling together.

In my small travel experience I've met so many good hearths I will never forget. Everybody's alone in this world and for that same reason everybody needs each other not to feel like.

I love to have fun and to party. The way I like it most is going to music festivals. My first was in Benicasim in Spain (2005), then Monegros (2006),again FIB in Benicasim (2006), Sziget in Budapest (2010), Balaton Sound in Hungary (2012), and finally Sonar in Barcelona (2014), just few weeks ago. Always found great atmosphere, awesome places and AMAZING people.

Rugbyman since the age of 8yo, a world where I've met so many good hearths and souls I'm feel so lucky I've been into.

I was journalist in SkySport as well, following rugby, between 2009 and 2012 and in 2014 I've been special reporter for DMAX during the 6 Nations Rugby Championship.

I love gastronomie and food culture, great passion about cooking and tasting good wines. I've been working in my father's restaurant (Osteria, actually, quite a different kind of hospitality) since the age of 16, an enchanting place where time seems to stand still.

Last year I took a gap year in Australia and...just amazing, MATE!

PHILOSOPHY

No plan is the best plan.
