About Me


Choose my path from here on


I'm afraid of people that have an opinion on themselves. I believe that whenever you define someone by some specific characteristic, you are giving up trying to really get to know him.


"for the poet and the wise man everything is close and blessed, every experience is useful, every day sacred, every man divine"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It isn't just about hosting, I try to be as helpful as possible giving advices and trying to make people feel at home


once I was hosting an Hungarian girl: we met for a drink with an Italian guy who came with 2 friends and 2 swedish guys he had previously hosted, and on the same night we met a guy from Milan who was showing the town to a french friend. We ended up in my kitchen drinking tea and wine and speaking up to 8 different languages, and at the end we all slept in my Venice apartment!(me+1+1+2+2+2=9!!!)


I love experimenting all kind of practices to become more conscious of my body (dance, theatre, contact improvisation, butoh...), listen to the sound of the wind and sea when they get in contact with a sailboat, try to sail whenever I can, exploring my personal being and life misteries through theater practice and its magic, enjoying the very few seconds when life suddenly reveals its bigger picture, cooking for my friends and inventing new dishes, listen to classic music and try to figure out a path in it, reading books that reveal me part of myself that I didn't know yet, learning new languages and try to connect it to the kind of culture that produced it...

Music, Movies, and Books

Tell me: I love when people suggest me their favourite book or pass me their music, there's so much to learn!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
