About Me


Playing at best my last cards..


I'm italian, I was born in Bologna (the city I love most) and at the end of my studies (Political Sciences) I have worked in France for an year. After a travel in Argentina, I'm coming back to Bologna.
I adore the latin Countries and the european culture. I smile every day because I love Life in general. What makes me happy? DETAILS: a song, a charming street, the end of a book, the beginning of a film, the memories of a friend, the atmosphere of a summer midnight walk...


"I don't want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as member" (Groucho Marx)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A pretty french girl told me she had travelled in Italy in 2012, hitchiking and without speaking an italian word.
She told me that she had tried a couchsurfing experience in Siena, too. Ten days after, I was hosted in Nantes, France.


I like reading books (politics essays, landscape photos, XXth century poetry, history of neolatins languages) rowing in the Ocean, taking photos of italian countryside and black&white photos in general, listening sad music as the argentinian Tango, the World cup etc...

Teach, Learn, Share

Honestly, I can't undestand people who say "I love travelling" as a refrain because it's in fashion.
What does it mean?? Do you really think that taking a tea in London at 5 p.m. and sharing a photo with Instagram means "travelling" ?
Or people saying "I visited Naples: I lllove it!" and after "I visited Manchester: I lllove it!".
If you love everything, you love nothing.
