About Me[edit]

I was born in Trani, a small but beautiful town in Apulia (Puglia), Italy but grew up in Milano, Italy. At 18 years old I left Milano to go to College in the USA and graduated from Northeastern University in Boston.

After graduation I lived in Falmouth Foreside and worked in Portland, Maine. Moved back to Boston and, after a few years, moved to New York City, New York. Left my heart in NYC and moved to San Francisco, California. Finally, 18 years after graduation, I moved back to Milano, Italy – where I reside today.

Travel[edit]

Travelling has always fascinated me. Opened my mind and my heart. I remember, in no particular order the following places:

  • Barcelona, Spain - biking in the old part of town and then celebrating with tapas and cerveza!
  • Bretagne, France - mystical.
  • Brookline, massachusetts- my first home away from home.
  • Brooklyn, New York - where I ate the best steak in the world!
  • Casa Grande, Arizona, a stange hotel, in the middle of nowhere...sand storm and a Star Trek reunion...need I say more?
  • Chicago - where I heard the blues feeling the blues.
  • Guam, South Pacific Ocean - shopping malls in the middle of the ocean? Yup! But away from the shops many beautiful spots and unforgettable sunsets.
  • Hong Kong, China - celebrating Billy and Sharon’s wedding – loved it all!
  • Lourdes, France - if you have no faith, you will witness faith!
  • Macau, HK - people bringing bird cages in the park!
  • Madrid, Spain - where I fell in love with a torero.
  • Kuda Haara, Kaafu, Maldives, the way they were about 30 years ago….
  • Miami, Florida - the first impact of heat wave exiting the airport.
  • New Mexico, USA – a cold and starry night!
  • Peterborough,New Hampshire- first Thanksgiving in the US and much more.
  • Porto Cervo, Costa Smeralda in the region of Sardinia (Sardegna), Italy. Crystal clear sea, sun, friends, party!
  • Puerto Rico, where a stanger asked my father my hand!
  • San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy - home of Padre Pio....seen in January, with no crowd, I fully enjoyed the beauty of the new church and the feeling of holiness.
  • Scotland - where else can you find snow, sun, rain, wind and then again sun all in the same day?
  • Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt - loved the sea…the rest, I can do without.
  • The Black Forest, Germany - where I got my first kiss.
  • The Southwest, USA - again sun, sand, mountains, canyons, hot, cold, stars, squirrels and peackocks and much more.
  • Tobago, Caribbean - a little girl with dreadlocks named Marina.
  • US Virgin Islands - watching colibris have lunch on huge flowers, pelicans dive in the sea, “ball fish” floating on the waves.
  • Vermont, - cannot forget a small blonde boy building a snow castle!
