Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to share my couch in Rome and also meet surfers in my journeys. Now I'm moving and I'll figure out what to do in Berlin


I hosted many people in Rome and alway had a great experience. I also surfed quite a lot, always a great experience.

Music, Movies, and Books

Uh, you can understand so much of a person by his taste in music, cinema and literature.. hope to make a good picture of me through just a few words: I love Dead Can Dance, Motorpsycho, Einsturzende Neubauten, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, Blonde Redhead, Sigur Ros, Afghan Whigs, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Robert Wyatt and so on. About Cinema, I love trash stuff (B movies and modern derivatives), Aromofsky, Araki, Lynch, Tarantino. Books: Fante, Bukowski, Updike, Carrere, Ellroy, Roth. Also read lots of science and philosophy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Tried to recover from a bad flu living in a tent in the desert in Mongolia... and it was filled with f***ing spiders

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a scientist and a musician, so all I can teach basically resides in these two categories: a way of looking at things with an open mind, an art that makes people experience deeper feelings. Have two more passions: I have my personal garden, so I'm pretty good at growing plants! I also love going around m mountains, sking and a little of climbing, for picking mushrooms and some herbs. And i'm a good chef, so teaching basics of italian kitchen would be great. Learning: everything.. I'm open minded and I love learning new things from everyone, cause everyone can be a master at something.
