About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Mediocrity knows nothing different from itself, talent instantly recognize genius (A. Conan Doyle)

ABOUT ME

I prefer others to say wich are my best qualities.
They usually say that I am a brillant guy, intelligent, self ironic and... modest!!! ;-))
I love sea, and sailing is my real great passion.
Beside this I am quite an athletic man who loves to be always in motion.

PHILOSOPHY

I always try to feel in others people's shoes, but it is impossible to do it, if you do not put away cultural and racial barriers.
Sincerity and respect are the best gift a man can be grateful for.

Ritm n' blues, soul, rock. Sting, U2, Euritmics, Peter Gabriel, Jamiroquay, Pink Floid, Mina, Bennato, Dalla, Battisti, De gregori. I love live music events, all kind ;-)
Conan Doyle, Safran Foer, Richler, Manfredi, Camilleri, Dostoevskij, Calvino, Kafka are some of the last authors I have read something of.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I was sailing south in the mediterranean in a full moon night. Some dolphins came to visit my boat. It has been probably the most magic moment in all my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to learn others' peoples way of living, funny traditions and culture.
Of course I can teach Italian.
