My self-summary
I'm a scientist and a bit of a writer and actor and… I lived in Milan, Warsaw, Mumbai and Shanghai. Now I'm in Astana being a professor at University (theoretical physics) and looking for new friends to share, talk and discover.

I don't believe in (among other things): straws, ironing clothes, England, big guys with long white beards (especially if they sit in the clouds or they live in Lapland... though I love the name Lapland), subway suicides, diet coke, closing the fridge.... feel free to ask me more about that...

What I’m doing with my life
My profession is science (physics, as in theoretical physics, as in general relativity and black holes and things like that) but that's not all. I worked in theatre, did some acting, wrote a play and I enjoy writing (fiction, short stories and plays) and I write for a tennis website and I also keep a weird/funny/nonsensical website in italian that no one understands (as if there was something to understand)... what else?

check the booktrailer of a novel I wrote with my friends from mazzate.com: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzi64kjccZQ
I’m really good at
smart and fun conversations (on the good days, maybe after a glass of wine), watching tennis, maths, sleeping, having pointless ideas that would make the world a better place, cooking pasta... what else?

If we get a little closer you might find that I am calm, solid, self centered, generous and attentive. I know I can make someone feel comfortable and safe and special and provide a little shelter from the storms that are happening in her life.

The six things I could never do without
the stars, mathematics, imagination, travelling, tennis and sense of humour
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of space and time, inertia, what is mass... and stories, most of which I'll never write.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on where I am, I can go dancing or just to a nice bar for a beer or a glass of wine, or just stay home with friends or with a good book... there's no rule.
