About Me

Please note 2 important things before sending me your couch request:

1) having only have 1 couch I can only host 1 person at a time for a maximum of 2 or 3 days. If you are 2 people, or if you need a place to stay for more 3 days unfortunately I will not be able to accept your request.

2) indicate your expected time of arrival in Milan city center (I live a 3 minute walk from ‘Moscova’ Green Metro line) and your expected time of departure from the house your last day, so I can understand if I can get organized to host you

Thank you so much for paying attention to these 2 points 👍

ABOUT ME

I was born in Sardinia, Italy.

Lived in Cagliari, Palermo, Firenze, Monza, Milano, Greeenwich Connecticut (Usa), Lisbon (Portugal), Adelaide (Australia) and finally Milano. I love travelling, meeting new people, challenging my point of views and trying to learn from other peoples experiences.

I also enjoy cooking, motorbikes (especially vintage ones), going for walks and sailing and going to my summer house in Sardegna to swim and relax on the beach!

I created three projects that today are a big part of my life, and also my job:
- the www.playmore.it non profit organization with which I manage a sport center in Milan
- the www.runchallenge.org a running and walking activity open to everyone
- the www.enjoy-the-ride.net motorbike tribute project

In September 2019 I was invited to do a TEDx Talk to tell the PlayMore! story.

PHILOSOPHY

Treat others the way you want to be treated...
...and be the change you want to see in the world.
