Mermaids away from home

I recently moved to a different continent and it sure feels like the other side of the world to me. I live at the US Pacific coast now, a nine hour time difference away from home. When my day starts, my family and friends at home are just about to end their workday to start … Continue reading Mermaids away from home

Between Trapizzino and Supplì lays Heaven

Undoubtedly, one of the most wonderful ways to experience a countries culture is food! Not only the food itself with all facettes of taste, smell and color but also the place were you eat, the people that prepared it, the people you share your meal with. I think everyone would agree with me that Italy … Continue reading Between Trapizzino and Supplì lays Heaven

Sex, murder, and disco music

I love rock. I grew up with rock music. I grew my hair long. I grew them really long, till my butt. I had t-shirts with skulls and bones. I made my mum pissed and worried. I watched many horror movies. I was shitting in my pants most of the time, but I still loved … Continue reading Sex, murder, and disco music

“Remember to look up at the stars”

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.

I believe that their abilities are far bigger than we realize. I believe that … Continue reading “My God is the God of the wayfarers”

The Portuguese way

I left Italy many years ago. Since then I have been happy, and I have been sad. I have been explaining over and over the Italian gestures and I had fun every time. I left many people on the way. Many good friends left behind by the different rhythm our lives took. I also met … Continue reading The Portuguese way

Rome is Pop

Rome is history. Rome is the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Trevi fountain. Rome is the Roman Empire. Rome is the eternal battle between Roma and Lazio. But Most of All ROME IS POP!

Art is resuscitating a dying beauty

I come from a really small region in the south of Italy. It is wild, authentic, slow. It is high and low, sunny and cold, colourful and dark. It is also poor, lost in its own life inertia, reluctant to changes and too often ignored by the outside world. I love my region, I love … Continue reading Art is resuscitating a dying beauty

You don’t have a Christmas Gift? – Worry no longer!

Hey everyone, okay, honestly I am quite nervous to write the first blog entry here. Isn't it annoying how you always think people judge you? Well, maybe that is just me. Anyways, we shouldn't say or not say something because of being afraid to be judged or valued in any way... And actually this post … Continue reading You don’t have a Christmas Gift? – Worry no longer!
