About Me


widen my fantasy, spread my sympathy


Let's begin from: I am not a "travel adict": I can easily do without. "travel" and "tourism" "no matter what" sounds like trying to escape from something. Not all travels are precious and necessary, but travelling alone to sleep at airbnb is very sad, while Couchsurfing is fun: that's the best way to explore places, building meaningful connections, meeting different lifestyles.
I moved a lot during my life (worktrotting haha) and finally settled in the wonderful city of Turin which I love so much. Through the many things that changed in my life I tried to keep loyal to a personal attitude towards life that's not easy to explain but I can define as transparent, naive, focused. Some things you may want to know about me: cinemagoer, intellectual, queer, accel xenoleftist, cheerful and generous friend. Not very sensitive to non-verbal communication so if you want me to understand something, you better say that in your own words. As a surfer, I'm very friendly, respectful and usually don't leave the house without giving a present, I wash my own dishes and sometimes cook for everybody and things like that. As a "houseowner", I'm friendly and devoted but I prefer to lend keys and let my guests be as independent as they like.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


with my smartphone. 3892862613


"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." said the poet, but you never really realize that until you enroll in Couchsurfing: living your entire life from hotel to hotel, getting to know just the people you are introduced to, doesn't give you the measure of what's really going on around you, and I must say that since I do Couchsurfing (both hosting and travelling) I realized that the world is very big, full of very different people, full of love and beauty and unique personalities.


I'm quite imaginative and welcoming. Life and human nature are two of my favourite topics
Among my interests, also Environment, Freeletics/ athletic skills, Feminisms, Post-modernism, Architecture history, New Wave music, Disaster Studies, Geography, Demography, card games and board games.
I used to swim and always like to, I am very appreciative of good company

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite movie is Brazil, by Terry Gilliam. Dogville changed my life. Who framed Roger Rabbit?, Blade Runner, Total Recall, all Bergmans'. I have projector and prefer cinema to streaming

I'm fond of New Wave music and my favourite band is Talking Heads.

this is my Anobii:

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walking through Italy from Adriatic Sea to Tirrenian Sea in around 20 days. A desert island in Sardinia is the strangest place in which I did it. Party in Brussels in an underground ex-slaughter. Went to opera three days in a row at music festival (twice!)

Teach, Learn, Share

I know everything about iPhone because I used to be a customer care advisor but I don't own one; I can teach you how to play "Machiavelli" with French cards

What I Can Share with Hosts

A couch, a bed, a nice welcoming, a chat, an experience together, it depends on the interaction, your mood, my mood

Countries I’ve Visited

Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland

Countries I’ve Lived In

Belgium, Greece, Italy, Portugal
