About Me


share, love, create connections, open the door to the unexpected


I always do too many things together.
Always trying to do my best to understand me and make choices starting from my real needs and not those society makes you believe in.

I like positive, relaxed people, who aim to grow their consciousness about themselves, to understand the people and the world we live in; I like simple, stunning, things.

The more you know yourself and your body, the more you can understand other's bodies, wishes and desires.

Novice theatre actress, born as a singer, occasional writer.
I love everything that's about creation: make art, make love, cook, share, paint together, create new projects together...
I love "making" and I love "together". So, I love to make together, I guess...and that's what creation is for me.

I can't believe in right and wrong. In my job, in theatre, I don't have to judge but to observe and understand very deeply the character. I like to do that with people I meet too.

I'm curious. But really curious!

Planning my life just to be able to throw all the plans away one day.

I'm not meteoropathic, I'm PHOTOVOLTAIC! I need the sun to shine.


I keep trying myself out.

Feel yourself deeply and follow your real needs without judgment. Accept who you are. Don't be scared.

Do things you like with passion, keep looking for fun and pleasure.

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget."
-- Arundhati Roy

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I usually hang out with CS people cause I don't have my flat in Milan.
I try to travel as more as I can using CS and BW, not just to have a free bed but to meet people and create a real sharing moment with them!

I worked in a backpackers hostel doing my best to keep the feeling of the traveller with me.


I met wonderful people travelling thanks to Couch Surfing and I had a lot of unexpected and fabulous adventures!


Arts, theatre, music, cinema, reading, travelling, singing, cooking, dancing, running, make up stories, playing with everything.

Long and deep conversations, in front of a good meal or with a glass of wine/beer.

Walk a lot in cities that I don't know and loose myself.
Walk a lot in the night. In the wood. Mountain. Seaside.

The sea. In every season. Water, in general.

The fire that warm you only one side of the body, that speaks with all its noises and makes your eyes relaxed.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like cooking and I could teach some italian recipes!
I can teach Bioenergetic exercises, how to do a cartwheel and few other acrobatic stuff, a music game with empty glasses and italian language of course!
I sing traditional italian songs and blues songs.

I'd like to learn french, spanish, german (although I already failed that in high school) and portuguese, juggling stuff, acrobatic stuff, foreign and vegetarian recipes, life stories, stories about places, playing instrument (I like too many) yoga, shiatsu and everything about alternative medicine and the use of herbs. Teach me everything!
