About Me

28 years old, Italian, restaurer. I am a very active person and I can not stand with folded hands. I have many hobbies such as scrapbooking, crochet, painting, cross stitch, draw, and my curiosity leads me to want to learn new things. I'm in love with any kinf of art, from 1300 to contemporary urban art. I have a geko tattooed on my neck.

Books, music, Movies

Music:

I'm a rock addicted, but I listen electronic music and crossover metal too. My favourite bands are Deep Purple, System of a Down, Tool, Pink Floyd as well as electro music like Daft Punk, Squarepusher,...

Reading:

I'm a serial reader. I read almost everything, including the labels of detergents. My favorite genres are science fiction, comic books, fantasy for adults, as well as graphic novels and comics. My favorite books are "The Guide to the Galaxy Hitchhiker" by Douglas Adams, "City" by Alessandro Baricco, "54" by the Wu Ming collective, almost all the books of Charles Bukowski, "Dance Dance Dance" by Haruki Murakami, "The Time Traveller's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger (oh, I loved that book!).

Movies and TV series:

I don't watch much TV, but I am passionate about science fiction and horror films (especially B-movies ;) ) and I love Tarantino! I'm a fan of Doctor Who and Torchwood as well as Sherlock, CSI and White Collar.

Shipping

Yes, Italian post sucks: there are often delays and sometimes the letters and parcels are lost, however so far I've always been pretty lucky and I hope to remain so. If you sent me something ùor are you waiting for something from me, please be patient!

For Type 3 swaps: please, put a customs declaration sticker on the package, and mark it as gift. Otherwise, it risks to arrive very late, or even worse, not arrive at all!

Before sending food please read the note below.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that Italian postal service might be a little bit slow. Mail for far location such as Asia and Australia, might take a while to arrive, so be patient! if you don't receive something, before rating please PM me and I'll surely resend the swap for you. Thanks.
