About Me

I'm currently writing on various webzines, both in Italian, my native language, and in English, about theater, performances and music. I started listening to jazz in 1998 with John Coltrane's A Love Supreme, at the times I was studying contemporary history in University, but after quite a while I passed through BYG and ESP records hard reissues of the time, so I fell deeply in love with both American and European improvised music. While I'm striving to make professional journalism part of my CV, I worked for many years as a graphic designer, and with many insurance companies.
