QUICK JOURNEY TIPS TO INTERRAILERS AND BACKPACKERS (AS ITALIAN): if there is an italian city you should really avoid is Milan. Go to Bologna or to Florence instead. I believe that the south of Germany, for instance, is much more italian than Milan.
I was born in Torremaggiore, a small town in Puglia, south of Italy (where the middle-aged kind Fredrik II died and left after him a lot of magnificent castles).
I BEEN LIVING IN BOLOGNA (ITALY) FOR 3 YEARS,
IN FALUN (SWEDEN) FOR 6 MONTHS, IN STOCKHOLM FOR 8 MONTHS, IN TüBinGEN (Germany) FOR 6 MONTHS AND IN GOTHENBURG FOR 5 YEARS.
In Gothenburg I quitted my Ph.D. in Medieval Philosophy for studying at music school and trying to pursue a music career.
PS. I am also a language nerd and would therefore appreciate that, if you happen to see your native language on the list of the languages I'm fluent in, you might write your request in your language and not in english (AN DIE DEUTSCHEN: bitte, schreib mir nicht auf English! Samma gäller för svenskar: var vänlig och undvik att skriva till mig på engelska).
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 who loves to talk about crazy things that could change the world. Jag är svag för språk.
