About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Simplifying.

ABOUT ME

All about me pffffffffffff buahaha!

Curious, ironic knowing of not knowing (who knows?).

Talking with people makes me feel alive.

Think but please feel. Let it be! Let it beat!

Connections is all it is about.

Some food for the soul: stories (listening to) landscapes breathing smelling faces (looking at) making faces music (any kind of) (better live) dancing it all art-contemplating art-experimenting doing things being in the thing doing things being somewhere else talking and philosophying being wrong laughing feeling just the way you feel making friends (for real) a lot more and a lot I still need to discover.

Beauty. It is just EVERYwhere.

Laugh loud, make it light, say it like it is.

My little puck will welcome any friend with a Smile.

PHILOSOPHY

"Yes, you can" I believe that we can live better, beginnig from getting to know ourselves. And communicating more. Dancing, falling and dancing again. Learning everyday and lifelong.

Change everything you are And everything you were (...) You've got to change the world And use this chance to be heard Your time is now [Muse]

Ognuno sta solo sul cuor della terra trafitto da un raggio di sole. Ed è subito sera [Quasimodo]

there’s no higher mountain than the one I won’t climb there’s no more lost bet than the one I won’t play now [Lorenzo Cherubini]

Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has. [Margaret Mead]

The first problem for all of us is not lo learn but to unlearn. [Gloria Steinem]

"In a world of universal deceipt, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." George Orwell

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Joined in Jan 2011 and had a lot of good encounters with wonderful inspiring people from around the world.

A shared life is a brighter life, a deeper breath and more sentitive look into things.

As I am staying in Milano for some time, I'll be happy to meet for a coffee, co-cooking, exhibitions, concerts, strolling, hiking, sun-bathing, partying... send me a text and we'll find out what's up.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted many CS from all over, and surfed in Spain France Switzerland Germany Austria Italy Turkey India Vietnam Indonesia.

Interests

Movies, contemporary narrative and books that suggest new ideas about human relations and psycho-sociology, photography, exhibitions and modern art, architecture, theatre. Dancing (loooooove it, rithm is a source of life, I just can't stand still :P ), walking around with my mind in the clouds, sunbathing, cooking, visiting cities, smelling flowers and touching plants and walls along the way, listening to stories (better drinking some good red wine), eating chocolate at night, screaming loud to concerts, running without any reason, making faces to an astonished child and much much much more ...

...living :)

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: any "good" movie from Clint Eastwood to Hitchcock, like Blade Runner, Pulp Fiction, Children of Men, Crash, The Hours, Vertigo, Lost in Translation, The Departed, Tyrannosaur, Todo sopra mi madre... Books: P. Roth, B. Yehoshua, J.S. Foer, V.Woolf, S.Benni, Murakami, I.Calvino and much more, and also almost anything about architecture/design, nice creative books for children :), plus many interesting books about sociology psychology women studies and some poets like W.Szymborska.
