My life

"Toast with a glass of water and get addicted to Adam's ale"

Journalist and creative writer.

I have been chronicling the news from around the world for US and Italian media.

Besides my long-running broadcast career at RAI SpA, I have published numerous articles on different issues on dailies, magazines and online papers, I have worked as a reporter and correspondent for radio and TV national and international networks and satellite channels.

But most of all I see myself as a maker of ideas...

I believe

"Small minds talk about people
Mediocre minds talk about events
Great minds talk about ideas"

Toast with a glass of water
