About Me

CURRENT MISSION

No mission, only intuition

ABOUT ME

For I do not exist: there exist but thousands of mirrors that reflect me. With every acquaintance I make, the populations of phantoms resembling me increases. (V. Nabokov)

=-=-=-=

30 years old, Italian. Born and grew up in Sicily*, lived in Milan for several years, then moved to Rome, Varese (a small town close to the Swiss border), Berlin and Lisbon. Currently living in Budapest.

* Just for you to know, Sicily is not only about mafia. It's an amazing, colorful island and one of the richest Italian regions in terms of history, art, traditions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicily
