I grew up in Varese, a small town (at least for American standards) in northern Italy.
The Varese region is known for its hills, forests, and lakes, with plenty of hiking and biking trails: (http://www.vareselandoftourism.com/Home)
Philosophy is a big part of my life, but I consider myself a person with quite diverse interests.
I love playing sports (especially basketball), skiing, and hiking. I (badly) play the guitar and the clarinet, and I sing, mostly in my car. Sometimes I write poetry, sometimes I just sit and listen to music. I enjoy art in each and every form. I am a big, enormous fan of Bruce Springsteen.
