About Me


..virtue remains the most expensive habit...I am paying it in instalments..




From life I aspect the knowledge and I try to help the next to understand what I already know. The knowledge to don't know and being among the others is the way to discover to be one. To standardize the truth becoming simpler the movements, without to drown in the slackness, but to limit the secondary activities that are the "submask" of true laziness. I play. Always to the vanguard, the graphic, the poetry and music, from the most ancient shapes of communication and, subsequently of expression, have become shapes of meditation and search of the deep one through the simple, harmonies between minimal tones, sampler, and search of the key of the emotion, at/on to the moment. I avoid the haste and other shapes of mental dependency and I occupy my body with my heart, in order to improve the relationship with you.

About Roman Culture check this guy:



I know, we born and we die alone. Sure. But between that, what a hell of traffic jam! Well, once I was sitting at a bar with three dear friends, discussing things useless but very passionately, with animosity, we had just finished beer and the greedy and smiling plastic barman/insect asks to us.. "Guys!..something crunchy??.." grubbing his hands like a fly does on a dirty table, and I.. "Yes, four liters of Beer"...we stopped to discuss and we started laughing forever..
Chain, chain, chain (Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain (Chain, chain, chain)
Chain, chain, chain (Chain, chain, chain)


I love Love, Flowers, Music, La Barbera, Travels, Atheism, Religions, Stars , Actually, Friends, Lake, Barrato, Krug, Matriciana, Write, Me, You, La Vigna, Mushrooms, Li Stornelli, Topics, La Topa, OFF Topic, Art, Nature, Organic & Traditional Food, Green, Peace, Fight, My Rights, Justice & Santo Espedito, Caviar, Social Rights, People, Social Centers, Caravaggio, Grosz, F.Bacon, Montepulciano e Sangiovese, G.G.Belli, Theatre e Trebbiano, Delbono, Debrutto, Books and Wine, Gin Tonic, Ever, and many more things around..
I feel, write and play my music. I've my Studio-Recording in Rome and I collaborate also with other artists in many ways.
I'm a simple and independent man, I like to meet people, spending time with friends, having a good time, visit places, listen and play music, speak about us, life, art, art to live, books, movies, theatre, topics. I like to hang out with close friends and see all the time the same place or a new place, new people, with who I can have common interest, change my mind, or your perhaps. I joy with pleasure house/roof parties, live-music and lounge clubs, not so much disco and big places, not often. I like very much to cook Italians (most Roman's ones) menu for my friends.
I'm able to do many jobs with my hands and I give one, or both my hands to my friends when they need it.
I like to read and I have to take my own time and space sometimes, aren't you? I like to take a walk downtown and with rain is not so bad, c'mon! To stop in a coffee with a window on the street.
I love my luckies (but I can stop whenever I want.. ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A lot of simple things, in Rome, during travels and live music tours with my band, Yes..
..but, personally, to see People helping People without a personal interest, it's the best thing that make me feel happy and proud to be in this world..
Just one story:
**** In the late Summer of '92 I was with my FIAT 900Van, traveling across Italy and, with my ex-girlfriend, we stopped to sleep in the central square of a little town called "Sansepolcro". We had also a small black cat with us called Brunello, we've found to Siena, and he wept often during the night..(mieaooouw..). With a lot of surprise, early in the morning, I saw a sweet and small old woman, so cute, with a little warm milk in her hands, coming to me saying, in her local dialect:
"hello guys, are you gypsies, aren't you?
I hear your child crying and I just wanted to give you some milk.."
..I did not say nothing but.. I shared the milk with "my family" and I just started to cry, for happiness, for ever ****

Teach, Learn, Share

I observe, sometimes I do think, anyway, I'm a good student and a good teacher, because only a meeting like this can be useful for both of us.
