About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be something good for the persons you meet!

ABOUT ME

When I was a kid I tried all the time (with quarter's friends) to invent magic things...

For example, I thought a very cheap way to fly.

I tell you.
I had a pen-friend from England. I sent her nice letters in coloured envelopes, where it was written 'by air mail'.
So, I thought to build a machine to resize me, making me small, small. I could be so small that I was able to enter in an envelope to send 'by air mail'...In this way, I could go to visit my friend, by mail... :-)

But, to tell the truth, I gave up on successful completion of this project because I was fear that the postman could lost the letter with me inside the envelope....:-(
To build the machine to resize people was not a problem. I can tell you how to do that,if you like. It is a scientific project...;-)

The morning of a summer day when I woke up I thought: today I want to see things from a different point of view, a bit higher than usual, somehow.

Thus,I took two long wooden poles and I built a pair of stilts. I spent the next days to learn to walk with them. After a while I did it and it was really amazing!
I could walk seeing everything from a height higher than three feet!

In a few days, all my friends in the neighbourhood built stilts as well and we were competing to see who could stay longer in this elevated position, without falling. That time we just have fun!

Probably when I grew up I became a researcher to play the same game, to see things in a different way and invent new good ones...

I recognize The European Charter for Researchers:
Researchers should focus their research for the good of mankind and for expanding the frontiers of scientific knowledge, while enjoying the freedom of thought and expression, and the freedom to identify methods by which problems are solved, according to recognised ethical principles and practices...

... These are my principles. And if you don't like them, I have others!

I love the breath of human feelings,too!

PHILOSOPHY

Be good and do positive things.
Dilige et quod vis fac. St. Augustine

Indipendent thinking (I try)

Interests

people, knowledge, cultures, life sharing

I like to play games.
Good friends are introducing new games. Dan° made me to know 'Bohnanza'; Raine and Emanuele gave me the opportunity to know 'Ticket to ride', 'Risiko',The Settlers of Catan...
I introduced them 'Saboteur' and 'Chrononauts'...

I like the game mechanics, in particular those concerning the role of personal choices and the role of luck. In the different games in various ways our personal strategies, group strategies involve different outcomes, as in life...and of course it is a nice way to spend time with good friends...

I like to dance,especially salsa and bachata......................................................................

I like geography and topography.........................................
I study the maps of countries and the form of cities, the distance between things in the world

I like arts, especially architecture,visual and performing arts. ...............................................................................

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I met a friend of mine in a library in Venice a day and the day after we met in a shop in Paris without any agreement, just by chance!

Since I was 7 years old, I decide sometimes to remember a moment for the rest of my life. I just say to myself: remember this!

This flashes of memories do not regard special moments of my life. It is easy to record them. They are fragments of living just for what life is in itself.
For istance I remember very well a moment of my life when I was 7 years old and I was just walking long the road covered by brown leaves, it was autumn. I was going to primary school...maybe I was an existentialist kid :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I spent a large part of my life just studying ... so, I hope to have something interesting to tell you...
I feel a have a lot to learn especially from the life of the people I meet, with their personal world, each person is unrepeatable.
