About Me


Live the life I love & love the life I live


Italian guy living since 2006 in Brazil, first in crazy São Paulo, then moved to Florianopolis to radically change my lifestyle. Since some months, back to Europe, to start a new adventure in Berlin.
I love to cultivate friendships and to pursue cultural exchange, and I always try not to judge the book by the cover, as I actually believe life is (and has to be) full of surprises. I'd say I'm a good listener, and I hate wastes of any kind.
Generally can't stand all -isms and -skisms, still I'll give you a chance to prove me I'm wrong ;)


oldies but goodies:

1) carpe diem....
2) if there's a will, there's a way.
3) what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger...
4) if you keep on playing with fire, sooner or later you get burnt
5) sometimes you need to take thing very seriously, sometimes you absolutely don't....

and, last but not least...

6) tente não ser um cuzão ( try not to be an asshole)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


sometimes I host, sometimes I surf, often I hang out with Fellow CSers
for a short while I volunteered to translate some CS pages into Italian, that's it


it's alway been an awesome experience, both hosting and being hosted. CS is a revolutionary way to meet like-minded people from the four corners of the world, break down barriers, and it simply changed (I guess forever) my approach to travelling...
