About Me

Me gusta hacer senderismo en las montañas.
Por dies años gane` mi vida haciendo espectaculos en las calles ,como cuentacuentos =fue tambien director artistico de `Fasti Verulani`` una feria de artistas callejeros= viviendo en una casas de ruedas.
En el 2001 he`viajado por Italia con mi burro ,Cecio,
en el 2003 y 2004 fui a hacer espectaculos en Palestina y Israel por los niños
( me gustan los niños ¡Bien asados!!!)hE`TRABAJADO TAMBIEN EN EL CAMPO.
y enseño en la prision de Volterra.
Me interesa la naturaleza, un estilo de vida responsable ( Rifiuto i consumi e consumo i rifiuti)
Me gusta leer, escuchar operas liricas, cuentar istorias, el humor,
No me gusta el desperdisio, el conformismo cultural .
Me gusta viajar, hospedear y ser hoespedado.

Sorry for my bad English.!. I like walking on mountains ( the Apuan mounts, the marble mountain .are not far from my house.) For 10 years I traveled in Italy performing shows in the street,(I was also in the staff of "Fasti Verulani" street artist festival and in the staff of Italian Juggling convention in Porano) living in my campingcar ,I am storyteller and clown ,In 2001 I traveled with Cecio, (see picture above) troghout the Italy for two months. In 2003 and 2004 ,I spended 4 mounths in Palestine and Israel making shows for children (I like children.... well done!).
Usualy in the winter ,because in the streets is too cold to perform, I worked in the country cutting,pruning,fencing etc. Now I came back to teach mathematics , and this year I will teach in the prison of Volterra.
I am interested in Natur, suistenable way of life (My favourite quotation is:"Rifiuto i consumi e consumo i rifiuti"),I like to read , opera music,humor,to tell stories. I don't like serious and arrogant people, I don't like waste,omologation, conformism. I like travell, when I can, and take and give Hospitality
