Hi, my name is Letizia.
I live near Mantova, a small peaceful city in the north of Italy and a little historical and artistic gem surrounded by the waters. Currently I work in Verona, which you probably know because of Shakespeareâ€™s play â€œRomeo and Julietâ€. Thereâ€™s always been a rivalry between Mantova and Verona, but a piece of my heart lies in the latter nonetheless.
Iâ€™m a curious person and I love learning new stuff and especially like people who know something I donâ€™t know or can do something I canâ€™t, for example the name of an exotic flower or how to fly a plane. Being the curious person I am, I love travels (both real and through books/tv): different countries and languages, different scenaries, different food, different styles - the more different from mine, the better it is. That is probably the reason why I studied foreign languages: English, French and Russian for now. I'm planning to add Japanese and Spanish in the near future.
Colors make me incredibly happy; I could stare at a painting or play with crayons for hours. Iâ€™m completely in love with Vincent Van Gogh. Besides my brother and my cousin, heâ€™s my favorite human being, despite the fact that heâ€™s been dead for almost 130 years. If I ever become rich in the future, Iâ€™ll do anything to acquire at least one of his paintings.
Iâ€™m a vintage lover. Anything old or even ancient fascinates me beyond measure. Really old movies or photos have a charm that the newer ones do not have. If time travels were real, Iâ€™d like to live during the Belle Ã©poque for a few months and during the Roaring 20s for a few more months. And Iâ€™d like to meet Julius Caesar.
I've been a collector most of my life: I collect perfumes, foreign currency, postcards and small funny/unusual sugar packets.
My childhood dream is to stand face to face with Tutankhamunâ€™s mask. My teenage dream is to visit Prague. My adult dream is to travel to the Moon. My ultimate dream is to touch Vincentâ€™s â€œSunflowersâ€, without being arrested.
I hate with all my heart Hallo Kitty. I prefer dogs over cats, even though I own a few of the latter. I absolutely love butterflies and dragonflies. Living in the country made me love almost any kind of flowers and trees, especially sunflowers, dahlias and poplars. I have no allergies whatsoever, but I really really dislike cucumbers - just the smell makes me sick. On the other hand I adore anything citrusy, peachy, minty or licorice-flavored.
I like pretty much every kind of music, with the exception of electronic-only music and really screamy songs. Violinists are cool, but pianists and cellists are cooler.
My favorite authors are (in no particular order): Plath, Dickinson, Shackespeare, Pirandello, Achmaotva, Bryson, Leopardi, Manzoni, Blake, Calvino, Blok, Diamond.
