About Me

CURRENT MISSION

stay human

ABOUT ME

Everywhere, even when I'm sleeping, life is always going on. Someone is creating art and someone else is dying of thirst; others are falling in love while someone is having his/her heart broken.

I can not believe that my life is just *this* and I can not know more, watch, hear, taste and live more.

I wish to be in different places at the same time and experience all the experiences that a human being can do, but I know that is just impossible and I should stop daydreaming all the time. But since I have discovered the Couchsurfing project my little dream has become a little more real.

PHILOSOPHY

Ad maiora semper!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Traveled through the MittelEuropa and met some splendid people. Hosted, among others, two brilliant couples: an American and a French one, in my hometown, Gioia del Colle (Bari). I expect to be soon the godfather of my American - CS - friends!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteering in Sarajevo with children where I've also met some of the best people ever.

Playing Theater of the Oppressed with some African workers was an incredible experience as well as teaching Italian to foreigners.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can give some basic notion of Italian cuisine and cook, of course, to practice a bit. I've also some know-how about the method of the Theater of the Oppressed that I can share with others.
For the rest, I'm really broadly open to know everything about humans and world.
