About Me


Ciao! 我叫 Mario。我是意大利人。 我是顧問。
Just an Italian guy. I have been living and working here and there. I studied Economics and Maths in Italy, I worked in restaurants and hotels in Germany, I worked as a teacher in Odessa, as a financial consultant in Spain ... London, Addis Abeba, Saint Petersburg, Bordeaux, Lyon, Fukuoka, Novosibirsk, Tainan, Saigon, Yogya, Taipei, Georgetown...



I've just read the references: don't trust them, I'm definitely overrated

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted some people and some other people hosted me. Like most of the members, I guess.


So far, so good

IMPORTANT UPDATE! I'm no longer really active on couchsurfing since it has become a business activity and not the most transparent and honest one. Luring people in and then asking them money to send messages, playing the extremely annoying feel-good card, using the work of voluntaries... pathetic and so sad if you think about what couchsurfing used to be

Music, Movies, and Books


Movies: Leone, Kurosawa, Kubrick, Tarkovsky are the directors I like best.

Books: I'd say Myórtvyjye dúshi, Der Prozess and Voyage au bout de la nuit. More generally I love Russian literature (from Gogol'Œ to Dovlatov) and American hard-boiled (Woolrich, Bunker ...)

Countries I’ve Lived In

England, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Russian Federation, Spain, Taiwan, Ukraine, Viet Nam
