About Me

CURRENT MISSION

knowledge, the only thing i'm interested in

ABOUT ME

hard to define ourselves, often easier to explain what we are not. probably in the next sentences i confess too many things about me: how could i surprise you if we meet?

PHILOSOPHY

mmm, basically i have a romantic spirit, that suffers tragic passions, like byron, and feeds on ecstatic experiences given by nature, like for wordsworth, and by beauty, like for keats. my approach to people is socratic.
i'm a river in whose water you can't bath twice, like eraclito adfirmed.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

ready to host 2 people max, in cologno monzese, not during christmas or easter holidays or in july, august and september. i'd like to be hosted with my best friend in every place reachable by every mean.one thing is very important: I don't host people who are looking only for a cheap solution or who send the same request to everybody. the ground of couchsurfing - according to me- is the elective request, after having read the couchsurfer' s profile.

Interests

i love reading (mostly russian and nord-american litterature), watching moovies. i believe no more in the social role of music. i like modern art, mostly the one of XX century, from the secession to the surrealism (figurative and not),avoiding futurism. And Monet!!
i like also writing: i started a novel that i'll never finish.
my favourite series are Boris, How I met your mother, Friends and Scrubs.
i appreciate good cooking, even if i'm coeliac.
i wear refined but cheap clothes, not following any defined style.
my wardrobe is not particularly large and most of my clothes were dressed by my mother in 70's . also my glasses come from those years, but they belonged to my father.
i study medicine, even if i'm very interested in philosophy and litterature.
travelling feeds my curiosity and this is the reason of why i move.
my new passion is dancing tango argentino and I want to learn it as quickly as possible.
i don't remember anything and I often suddenly fall asleep.

Music, Movies & Books

my favourite directors are woody allen, quentin tarantino and tim burton (obvious?). i don't disdain italian cinema like bertolucci. ok ozpetek and almodovar. excellent bergman if you are not studing very hard for your exam or you don't have a suicide aim. very interesting neorealism. wonderful fellini. I like a lot Jeunet and Truffaut (all the Nouvelle Vague)
i listen to italian singersongwriters with much pleasure: from classic de andrè, battisti, battiato, guccini, de gregori...to tiromancino, afterhours, sometimes marlene kuntz, perturbazione...i like rock, from the historic beat to an original punk, from indie, alternative to new wave. i'm not averse to jazz, blues and folk and,during a party, reggae and ska.
reading is my hobby. i devoted myself to introspective letterature, after a committed past, from vittorini to pavese, not forgetting the political fantasy by orwell and vonnegut. dostoevskij and tolstoj, among Russian writers, kafka and kundera, among Czech ones. wallace and salinger recently. after the italian pirandello, the milanese pinketts.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i cut lots of sorry figures...most of them were funny according to spectators and partakers.
