About Me


tasting the present colour of things


I'm a young architect who is rising his sails to the net harbour, wanna join my ship?!?
Even though photograpy is my passion overall! no way, this is the passion!!!!
I'm discovering that taking photos is the best way I have to look myself in the mirror, my strenghts, my fears, lights I can see and darkness I cannot see through:it's one of the best therapies I've ever tried, and day by day I'm realizing that I can see but I rarely can feel what I see.If anybody could have been more sensitive to the messages of one's neighbours, I think we wouldn't had so many wounds & cracks,life often it's a matter of reading and of seeing,then a matter of heart.. no?!?I Do believe in the value of hospitality, in the widest way it could be interpreted!


"And when he speaks to you believe in him,

Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning [...]

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips"

Gibran K. Gibran

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


rambling and unfolding next to my guests (and to me) some of the secrets of all those ancient streets,

discovering the night event WE cannot miss!
let's dance a bit, no?!?


20 new people have entered my life till now...

good try, I'll keep on going!

laughs can heal the pain


photography of course, architecture, lighting design,

Hiking next to the closest friend is a MUST,

riding horses, american way of doing it, boots with spurs, open reins... really yankee I would say,
something unusual for Italy used to English Style...
Among Italians could sound a bit ridiculous, but u can't understand till u do, how much is wilder & freer!!!
Then feeling the movement of the chest of the horse while u are up there, and the warm breath coming out from the nostrils when u r walking side by side of him, your heartbeat rising fastly when he starts galloping, washing "your" horse, doing him pigtail, brushing, saddling him up, bitting the horse that's all!!!

reading a book from 24:00 until 01:00 of the morning

having party, dancing till the feets claim a stop!!!

I'm in love as everybody with... music,
I'm planning one day to start to play trumpet... I adore this instrument!

Music, Movies, and Books

the last ones in these days:"the wrestler" by Darren Aronofsky with M.Rourke,it's the metaphor of Rourke's life
"the black swan" another good shot by Aron

Lisbon Story, Der Himmel uber Berlin, Pina 3D by W.Wenders . . . absolutely absolutely poetry, he is my favourite film director, no doubt!
And what can I say about "el secreto de sus ojos": linda esa pelicula!!!!
"Cinnamon girl" by Prince, I'm in that mood of a bit of groove now"tornando a casa" (coming back home) a Wonderful poem by the italian musician Vinicio Capossela... I love love love it"Istanbul" by Orhan Pamuk... amazing the chapter about his childhood, I felt the smell of the first days of my life
"Ensaio sobre a cegueira" I've started during the last days this masterpiece of José Saramago, I'm by now at page 36... and it already appears as something wonderful, with a strange strange way of using the direct speach... the idea of the story & of the plot is brilliant
"Non Avevo Capito Niente" Diego De Silva, a Comedy in beetween marriage napolitan camorra law courts teenagers problem and maturity **** I suggest to Italian natives: so many so many laughs!!!
"Lamento no Morro" by Vinicius de Moraes, while listening at it I feel the will to go back to Brasil's 60ies and living my youth there... I cannot explain why...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

walking during 16 days, often in the rain, with a very very light backpack, enjoying great Spanish hospitality, sharing bread knife sleepingbag toothpaste food pen water exertion joy mental-stress sunsets and sunrises (2 at least) and a wonderful friendship I'll never forget:

along the way to Santiago

Teach, Learn, Share

I would really like a good French language trainer...
then a salsa trainer I missing it, I'm longing for it

while I can share
with you
how to take a good picture, what is amazing to discover and learn about Rome: some tips, some history, some stories, some store, where practise cycling without risking life (it's important no?!?), where to buy the best homemade cookies of the city, the best park or the landscape you would never expected to find here...
