  • Description


    I’m Peppe,
    an Italian guy that after having travel the world for fun, working, and outdoor activity, has decide to settle down in the south of Italy, at least for now :-).

    I live in a historical house in the historical center of Gioia del Colle (BARI) together with my mother - a typical Mediterranean mamma who never stop :-). My father and I restored the house in the 90s, but frankly speaking it was/is a long term project that is never ending :-).

    I work as remote programmer for Yale University and for some international no-profit foundations. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as caving, canyoning, rafting, hiking, biking adventure. My handyman skills, coupled with a good mindset (that's why I was working at Yale :-)), enable me to come up with solutions for any challenge—which is why my caving nickname is "el selvaje" (with "e" for that Italian flavor :-)).

    Autres infos...

    The town is served by the local train and you can reach BARI and other destination in an easy way. The town has the basic needs in walking distance.
    During your free time you will have the opportunity to join the local Club who organize hiking, biking, caving activities. Of-course over there everybody will only speak Italian so will get involved in a full immersion Italian language course :-). I'm also an active member of the Club.
