Born on March 24th, 1982 in Modena, Northern Italy. Aries ascendant Virgo: this describes me a lot. On one side passion, romanticism, foolishness, creativity, a terrible girl…
on the other side control, science, consequent decisions, coherence, order…
This always makes difficult to let me be understood by people, who – most of the time – do not want to recognise the other side of myself, or simply cannot accept I am always myself.
My interests are many and different as well: you can find me in a stadium or in a public record office, in a disco or in a library, at a metal concert and in the Salzburger Festspielhaus, in a restaurant eating and drinking as a male and in a gym studio. I enjoy watching films and series on my bed or my couch and just falling asleep, even at 22, or dancing in a club till 3, 4, 5 o’clock (rock, dark new wave, metal, pop, disco, dance, trance, hard core, salsa, mambo… it does not really matter!). I could be thrilled at waking up on 4 o’clock just to travel somewhere or to go hiking… or at having free and sleeping till 11 when it is raining cats and dogs outside and I just smile listening to raindrops on my window, relaxing under my blankets. Wearing a comfortable ( but possibly sexy…) Adidas training suit, or designer outfit-classy stuff-fighetteria-Tuss-Gewand ( when I can afford it…), or well-combinded casual stuff. That’ s always me. Driving my MTB around Salzburg for and entire day, or partying all the night. Trying to fit as many vegetables as possible in my diet, then stuffing myself with Modenese food and Lambrusco, then caffè and nocino. Most important of all: enjoying all of this as well! And being myself all of the time.
Why this blog? Why do I ever write? Some beautiful lines – not by me – which somehow have something to do with my decision. I will not explain why exactly…it is the artist’s prerogative to decide what to represent and what to show… Dedicated to the two halves of my soul who always inspire my writing – scientific or emotional, who cares! It is always my own writing process as well!
Has anyone ever written anything for you
In all your darkest hours? […]
[…] So, if not for me, then
Do it for yourself
If not for me then
Do it for the world
Poet…priest of nothing
Stevie Nicks, Has anyone ever written anything for you?
Well, I have to add something more. Many people will ask what I do for living…I live between Salzburg and Modena, I am trying to finish a PhD program and I earn my life teaching Italian (sometimes even English, Latin, German…yes, I wrote German! I couldn’t believe it myself!), translating into Italian from EN&DE, selling my two books. About this stuff, the “boring stuff”, there are some links on your right, so feel free to have a look…it is a side of me as well! (and if you buy a book by me or want to do business and/or research with me, I will not be sad, believe me!)
