About Me

I was born in Torremaggiore, a small town in Puglia, south of Italy (where the medieval king Fredrik II died leaving behind a lot of magnificent castles).

In Gothenburg I quitted my Ph.D. in Medieval Philosophy for studying at music school and trying to pursue a music career and now I moved to Stockholm where I study for becoming an high school teacher. My subjects are history, philosophy, italian and (probably) also german and religion.

I like history, philosophy, literature, old book stores and Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. I highly appreciate arts, music (folk, songwriters, and indie-rock), and literature, I play the guitar and sing my own songs (in Italian, English, and Swedish). I love to write. I've published two books so far (in Italian) and I'm now working on a novel set up in Sweden.

I'm an easy-going and open-minded person and a language nerd.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Helping people is very important for the collective well-being.
The most welcomed people are those who see no borders on Earth and who really love to travel with no prejudices :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- I have hitched all the way to Northern Sweden, slept in a tent along the way and met "on the road" Ingmar Bergman's nephew.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to play the guitar,
I can teach you SWEDISH or ITALIAN or a bit of Latin.
I can help you to trace etymologies of European languages back to Latin and Greek roots.
I can teach you how to HITCHHIKE.
I can share philosophical thoughts about who we are, where we are going to and how we could improve the world.

What I Can Share with Hosts

An extra bed (and sleeping bag as duvet), toilette with warm water and shower, breakfast and pleasant conversations about everything.
(optional): Live music :D.
