What can I say ... I love nature, music, good food, traveling backpacker, mingle and be enriched by other cultures .... these are all the passions that, in many ways, I was able to cultivate in my life. I have a degree in Natural Sciences, and I admired and studied whales in the waters of Newfoundland (Canada). I played (that is, I sang, as I'm primarily cioa singer!) with many musical groups, and in particular with the Texado music was almost a profession for me...I just can not imagine my life without notes! I am a graduate of the hotel school in Chianciano Terme, near Siena. I made the kitchen my main job and pleasure to sit at the table with sincere friends or with my family one of my more "tasty" beloved!
I love to imagine looking at the world through the eyes of my two beautiful children and wonder at the beauty contained in the small things.
I like to think that today's children will be able to possess a new wisdom and they will build, for themselves and for their children, a better world to live in peace and in love.
