About Me

I`m a social person, interested in people: how they live, how they think, how they feel.
My friends say that I'm a creative person: I collect new ideas, that I try to apply to everyday life.
I have a quite busy working life. So it is difficult for me to spend time with my gust(s) during the day, monday-friday. But I love to give suggestions about what really wort to be seen in my beloved city, Milano.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing as a guest and as an host.
AS A GUEST: I frequently travel with my almost 11 y.o. daughter, that is a real little traveler, easy to adapt, flexible and able to make friendship in a few minutes with other little girls /boys (she speaks english too, but language is never a real barrier for children)
AS AN HOST: I am happy to host people from all over the world in my home in Milan. For 18+ maximum number of guests is 1 I do only exception in the case of parent(s) traveling with their children.
Children /girls/boys under 15 y.o. absolutely welcome.
I NORMALLY ANSWER IN A VERY SHORT TIME "YES" "MAY BE" OR "NOT" TO EVERY REQUEST I RECEIVE.
TO THE ACCEPTED GUESTS I ASK TO TELL ME IMMEDIATELY IF THEIR PLAN ARE CHANGED.

Music, Movies, and Books

About music, film and books: voracious. I think that any kind of music, film and book can learn something new and relevant to me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I crossed Western Africa using buses and shared taxis, from Dakar to Timbuctou ... years ago when it was still possible!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to make perfect spaghetti carbonara (one of my favorite dishes), even in a vegetarian variation. But you have to grate the parmesan, a practice that I don't like so much to do because I was obliged to do every day during my Italian childhood.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd love to cook dinner(s) for my hosts, obviously suppling all the necessary ingredients (normally I adapt the recipes I cook for my hosts to seasonal, fresh products locally available... I'm not a professional cook but in any case I work in a kind of restaurant... and I'm learning a lot from our Chef that is great).
I like to do dishwashing too, an activity that I find relaxing and that I always do in my normal life.
To the hosts I can offer to be a curious but discreet and respectful guest.
Like almost all Italians, I love to chat a lot (too much?), but I'm able to limitate myself....
