About Me


Reporting good news from all around the world!


I'm interested in knowing interesting people, I like playing my drums, dancing salsa music, editing my videos. I used to play in a cover band, now I've quit but I'm searching for a new one. I'm a guy that is fond of life and I'm fighting against the "death&fear culture" of our age, that is spread by mass-media. So I decided to trasform myself in a reporter of good news!

So why don't talk about Couchsurfing in a video report? CS is a great GoodNews! :D
This is my video, broadcasted by RAI italian public television in May 2010----->

This is another report, the one I prefer: --->
It was broadcasted by italian RAI television in May 2008---->
It's about an interest-free bank that operates in Sweden, the JAK members bank. 36.000 people sharing their own money, without asking and paying usury on it, whether their are saving or borrowing. That's a great revolution, and a very Good News! :D


Searching for a better world, giving my contribute to the change that the humanity must begin.
"Experiencing the Journey of finding Your Own Spirit reflected in the World around You, is why you are here"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think CS is the best way to fight against the "death&fear" culture of our age, since it regards the opposite!


I travelled with CS in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, always finding very kind, generous and open-minded people. I'm still in touch with many people that I've met, so I can say to have met actually new friends!
CS is great!
