  • Description

    Hellluooow
    Well, what makes me tick is knowing that for me there's an hope, a possibility to wholeheartedly live, to travel around and discover the world: so experiencing new lifestyles and people different from me and my country, instead of being stuck in a office for life. This is the basic reason why I am here on this website. For this pulsion. I recognize that the world is interesting and variegated (which does not mean light) so I want to try to live it for what it is. Second, I like creating and handworking, so I want to improve me on this sector: I feel I want to artistically express myself.

  • More details about your skills

    I've studied Art History and I'm particularly sensitive to Art (from classicism to contemporary), colors, shapes, equilibrium, compositions. I'm very interested in design, like interior design: I designed some art exhibitions creating the projet and setting it up; fashion design; set design: I do photography and shootings, setting up scenes with still life and costumes.
    I like to create: I used to made jewelry with polymer clay; now I prefer to made still life with the nature.
    I work in museums and galleries as an assistant, guide and exhibit designer.
    I made restoration of old wooden furniture as assistant restorer, am passionate about antique and I try to collect it.
    I gained some experience in gardening and permaculture: I've worked a whole garden in permaculture from the beginning 'till the phase of planting, and I've regularly fed chickens and birds.
    I used to draw and to paint. I love to write.
    I'm a sporty person: I did swim for 11 years at agonistic level (I was 4th in Italy a time); tennis and hooping. I try to do fitness everyday, I want to grow old like Tina Turner XD

  • What else ...

    I'm from Naples, Italy, and I've lived in Milan, Paris and pretty many other places: now I live in Zürich.
    I travel a lot around: if I had to say which was my best trip ever, well, I would choose the Santiago de Compostela's pilgrimage. It has been a real inward journey.
    I like places where trees and vegetation have been free to develop. Nevertheless, at the same time lively cities with a great tradition of culture and art - included design and fashion - motivate me quite much...
    With Workaway I'd like to learn building, gardening, creating, recycling and every kind of art. Nonetheless, to learn about alternatives lifestyles and healthy alimentations.
