About Me

CURRENT MISSION

This new couchsurfing version is really really bad. we want the old CS back. Let's protest agains't this new management!!! and let's move to BeWelcome

ABOUT ME

Sicily my island, my family, my friends, my "green" job, my actions for justice, peace and environment defence, my memories and my dreams... It's almost all about me.

PHILOSOPHY

"There is only one corner of the universe you can change, and that is yourself, but in changing that corner, you change the universe" (indian proverb)

"Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity." -Albert Einstein

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

At the moment I'm just hosting!!! :p

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Really positive!!!

Interests

My main interest right now is the battle against the longest and the most useless bridge of the world national government wants to build to link Sicily with the other part of Italy. This bridge would destroy a so beautiful coast (also Homerus in Odyssey told about this charming coast), without any good effects for transportation and local economy.

Other interests: rock climbing, snorkelling, biking, trekking and some other words ending with "ing" :p

Music, Movies & Books

my best movie is "Into the wild" and I love all the songs of the film:
"Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole"
Books about sicilian heroes who spent their life fighting mafia ( a strong sicilian criminal organization)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Camping in Ruaha Tanzanian Park and hearing, for the whole night, lions roaring on the other side of the river, but... the river was completely dry))) An almost kamikaze action against bridge!!! During a national live show from the shore of the lake close to my house. I went by my boat with a big banner "NO AL PONTE" (=no to bridge) where they were doing this show but I didn't know they planned fireworks coming from the water and when I noticed a lot of wires ( used for switching fireworks on), was too late. In few seconds I was completely surrounded from fires and explosions and big pieces of burning materials was following on the boat. It was really a strong experience, but the whole Italy saw the banner NO AL PONTE on television )))))
