About Me

Hi everybody!
I'm a young girl hungry to deeply know and understand the world, that's why I love studying and travelling! My aim is to save the world :)
I grew up in a small city in the North-East of Italy, I studied Political Sciences in Bologna and after I lived in Bogotà, where I was teaching English in a public school.
I've been living in Malaysia for 8 months, where I was doing my European Volunteer Service, travelling around South-East Asia during weekends and holidays.
I've done a master in Sustainable Territorial Development, set in Padua, Leuven (Belgium) and Paris, and I did an internship in Brazil about sustainable/alternative economics.
I did an internship in Washington DC with the European Delegation, and then the Universal Civil Service in Geneva... so I lived and worked in different countries, and who knows where I'll go next?
I'm currently in Rome, working for the Italian Green Party, and I love it! <3

I am really into any kind of art, dancing, get in touch with nature and interesting people, new experiences and challenges, and warm weather :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love this kind of networks, as I deeply believe that cooperation and sharing experiences may only enrich everyone and the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite books are "The perfume" (Suskind), "Shantaram" (Roberts), Tiziano Terzani's books (an italian journalist, traveller and pacifist), "The Island" (Huxley) and "Narciso and Boccadoro" (Hesse).

I love Roberto Benigni's, Giuseppe Tornatore's and Woody Allen's movies, especially for the amazing photography and the colors.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did paragliding, rode an elephant, prayed in a Mosque, lived in the jungle, and many other things that I need more time to remember. And I don't have Instagram, which I guess is a pretty wild thing too 😎

Teach, Learn, Share

I can dance almost anything... I may try to teach that :)
I love sustainability and I would be glad to help you with suggestions for improving your lifestyle towards more ecological solutions.
I also worked as a teacher... Just choose a language! :)
