About Me


Try to take over the world!


I love travelling. I have this strange idea that I cannot leave out a single corner of this world in my travel plans. Depending on me, I could spend my whole life travelling... but I cannot, so I try to make the best of my routine time. I try to learn everything I can from everyday's experience. I talk (a lot) to people as much as I can. I have fun, I enjoy my life: could I ask for more?


A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step - Laozi

I love home, but I need to travel. I wondered how that was possible, then I realized home is everywhere you want to find it. And it's by getting out and looking at Home from a distance that you really get to enjoy it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like CS project: it makes the world smaller, and easily accessible by everyone.


The first time I heard about couchsurfing I thought it was a really good idea to travel super low cost around Europe... then I hosted a couple of times, and realized just how amazing this whole thing was. You get to meet people from all over the world and share with them your time, your house and your experiences: that's something you really can't pay for!
I got to know some really interesting people through Couchsurfing, and all that while travelling and seeing new places, which is really great if you think about it!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies, I'm a real moviegoer and enjoy talking about it for hours. I used to be a pretty good reader too, but computers&technology have taken over my spare time, so I read much less now, and I regret it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

From the Bund in Shanghai to Yao villages in Guangxi to Manhattan, or Paris, or a music festival in Kowloon to every sunset I've enjoyed in my wonderful hometown... I have seen some pretty amazing things.

Teach, Learn, Share

It has occurred to me that everytime I speak with a foreign person, a question about the political situation in Italy comes up. So, if you want to know something about it, just ask: I'm quite a talkative person, and I could speak about politics for hours.
And also, let's create a network. Unemployment is not meant for worldly people, so let's find a cure together, shall we?
