Honest, steady, curious, a bit old-fashioned and very (and I mean very) romantic.
Owner of a beloved splendid (though a bit unruly) Alsatian.
And as you can see, not very photogenic (sigh).
I mean, I've been through so many unusual events that most people will find it hard to believe. So if you like fiction, just ask...
Anyway, as of now I'm starting a political career, after having spent most of my life dealing with science (mainly biotechnology).
making romance the good ol' way
taking care of the people I love
being committed to what I believe in.
I like crime books a lot, especially Nero Wolfe in English, Montalbano in Italian and Maigret in French.
Anyway, every book that has an interesting idea about a social/political problem is worth being read.
Generally speaking, I'm not really a movie buff; I don't like to watch people pretending to be someone else, especially when they simulate their feelings. Of course this holds true outside cinemas too...
As a consequence, I prefer movies and fictions that either describe an event that has actually happened or inquire into social phenomena. A recent example of the first kind is Lincoln (that I really liked a lot), one of the latter is any movie by Alberto Sordi, because he closely depicts the typical Italian attitude towards life, both in its virtues and faults.
Italian Food. Period. I've lived abroad and it was the only thing of my country that I really missed.

And if I messaged you, definitely. Even to say a simple 'No thanks'. Because the guy who wrote you isn't a badass and complete silence is a practice as common (alas!) as impolite, at least for me.
