About Me


Pour drink to uprooted trees


I'm a sociable and friendly physiotherapist and street artist.
I like so much the byke philosophy (Bicycling is the nearest approximation I know to the flight of birds) and, above all else, to pedal shoeless during the summer (please, excuse me for my poor english!).
When I was a child, I liked to play with the videotapes, from room to room, creating a big domino effect.
Now, I grew up but I'm still doing the same thing with my ideas, my plans and some of my opinions because, without a doubt, I really like the faculty of doubting, its thousand and one possibilities and the joy of incertitude.
Fortunately, my father kept me from playing with toy soldiers and my mother has showed me how to make a delicious pizza. I'm son of working class and I like people humble and spontaneous like me.
I like to play volleyball with toyballoons, blowing soap bubbles and to play table football and kick a lot of goals with the red goalkeeper ;-)
When I arrived in France, in Limoges, I was a SVE volunteer to people with mental disabilities because there is always a big smile or bear hug awaiting me when I give and receive unconditional love.
At the moment, I'm in Carcassonne, because I'm working in a rehabilitation center here.
I like books on medicine, philosophy and anarchy... Our life is a walk on this earth, and all we have to do is take care of the most important and beautiful things that life gives us.
And, of course, hakuna matata!



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It all began in the summer of the 2010, when I coming back in Italy from my erasmus trip in Spain... I have hosted a lot of people in Rome and after I have surfed in Paris... Now I'm discovering the french culture...


It was wonderful to meet people with their different culture. Each of them enriched me and helped make me who I am. I hope it is just the beginning because I always think that the best is yet to come...


Life, without high drugs... does not take much to be happy ... a little bit of love for oneself and for others ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have looked the most beautiful living statue, in Rome...
J'ai vu l'endroit où a été réalisé le premier vol humain de l'histoire, à Angoulême...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you italian (without gestures), how to make a good pizza, how to juggle 3 balls, a little bit of Yoga and also I could teach you some tips and tricks to take good care of yourself.
