About Me

(I live in Florence,Italy, don't know why CS still put me in Cali)

I LOVE dancing SALSA and everything about latin dance.

I am an ARCHITECT, a like a lot my job 'cause it deals with lots of different topic. I'am very interested in social-architecture, cultural-historic heritage.

I like readind. I like the magazine Internazionale. (here the web site

I lived more then two year in COLOMBIA (I came back to Italy in october 2015). I can tell you a lot about this country.

I am a curios person. I like to discover new people an places. I like FOREING LANGUAGES al lot. I took once even class of arabic and japanise.

I collaborate with a VOOLUNTEERINGgroup " Gli Anelli Mancanti", an association that provide italian class and help to immigrants and refuges.

I like to draw portrait, at least I try ;) !!!, you could be my next insipiration ;)

I think I am a simple person but I have several interest.
I like music, wandering in nature, enjoying active city. I like searching for mmushrooms in the very early mornig but also clubbing until sunrise. It depends.

I like people able to adapt theirself in different situation.

I avoid (as much as I can) Italian restaurant when I am abroad.I do not like suv, pick up hummer used in the verysmallstreet city. I would like to understand more about computer.

I like CS a lot, I have always met nice people. Today it's seem that everything is based on money-power-perfetforeverjoungbuinsnessman/woman and people are getting afraid of each others. I think CS help to see things from differents point of view. CS helped me in beeing more openminded, and helped me focus on deeper values. I always suggest CS to y friends.

I From 2012 to 2015 I was going several times to Colombia. I lived there more than two years.
2010-2011 I lived in Berlin and I did a travel in Chile( and Bolivia a little ).

When I met new people I'd always like to talk with them with their motherlanguage, I know it's not possible!but I try to do it at least with latin languages. I worked for a project in chile u can look this web site I really enjoyed this project and also the theacher and my mate were super!

(may 2012)I take a tour by bicicle with the guide Mauricio, muy buena onda, I higly recomand this tour, for having a first, but deep in information, perspective of the city

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to behave with the people in the same way I want them to behave with me
