About Me


Discover myself discovering other cultures


i like when other people say or write something about me... especially when it's something good :))


We contemplate the same stars, the heaven we have in common, we are part of the same universe: what does it matter how each ideology seek the truth? We cannot reach such a great mystery through only one-way

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have not enough time to travel around the world as i would like. That's why i can open my house to other people from all the world. I can feel my self as a traveler in my city.
Couchsurfing is the best way to show and share all points of views and all different kinds of cultures.

Update aug. 2011 - My life changed. I'm going to move and to travel a lot around southern Italy because of my job. One of the sadest things about leaving my beautiful Rome is that i'll be far from the couchsurfing hosting mood. I don't want to lose all of the opportunities that this system gives and i guess i will be more traveling than in the past. I hosted more than 80 people in 2 years... now it's my turn to be a guest.
Thank you CouchSurfing

Update aug. 2019 - I miss the couch surfing mood. Unfortunately I'm traveling a lot for work and I can only meet and/or guide people around the places I am staying at the moment.


Even i don't partecipate to cs life because of my short free time, i've hosted a lot of people. Many of them very good experiences... just one/two not good... i think CS is the best way to travel also with mind when you aren't able to go out your country. It's amazing that you can hear a lot of languages in your home, you can speak about a lot of things and compare different points of view


I love to ride my bike and traveling solo by that, i love photography and i use digital and films, i love good wines and good food. Reading is another important part of my life together with ancient history, archeology and ancient philosophy. Does it seem boring? Believe is not! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

books: greek and latin classics, Renaissance writers, historic novels, George Orwell, Hermann Hesse, W.F. Nietzsche, and many many others

music: even i'm not able to play (i did when i was young) i love music. It is an important part of my life 'cause brings me feelings and memories about a feeling. Yes, music is important as important are feelings. It's very hard to say what i like 'cause in the rhythm i look for something deep... not just a moving body :)

movies: depends on the mood. Sometimes meaningless movies, when i need to laugh without concentrating or thinking. When i'm empty of thoughts (in a good way i mean) i love mazy (intricate?) movies like ethernal sunshine of a spotless mind. When i was in love i looked movies to compare to my life.
And, mind, i am a fan of: Matrix, Star Wars and Lord of the rings. I love movies partly taken from the history like "Alexander" or the series Roma...

Well this describes me a bit but i guess my taste cannot be explained in few words... ask me, i'd like to enjoy this kind of subject! :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Under a certain point of view i am a common guy, but you can discover that everything in my life is unusual and funny. Come to my place and, drinking a cup of thea, we'd share a lot of stories about my life :))

Amazing things? I'm wondering if it is fare to leave the best paid job someone like me could get to enjoy the freedom. In my life i loved strongly and i have been kicked. I teached and i learned but, above all, i have been free.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach italian cooking, something about history of ancient Roma and middle age in Italy and something about architecture (but i am not an architect)... What can i share? I love talking, sharing feelings, sharing life with special people. That's the best way to feel free and alive

Countries I’ve Visited
