About Me

I'm Alberto. I travel, I film, I eat and I'm hungry for more!

"La vita non va allungata, va allargata" = "Life is not to be extended, it's to be enlarged". In Italian "Life" = "Vita" = "Waistline"!

+++ UPDATE +++
I'm very upset with this website because in the middle of a pandemic, it decided to set up a paywall preventing people from getting in touch with their CS friends or even accessing their own profiles!

So I'm now on BeWelcome:

See you there! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been meeting wonderful people around Europe, middle east, southeast Asia, Africa and Australia. This website has raised my trust in mankind.

I ain't exactly a night owl and I'm not into drinking so if you're looking for a party guy i'm not your man. I enjoy doing sports and outdoorsy stuff. Around Bologna there are places i know quite well and places i love. If you're looking for good food i got some advice to give! :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Flying on a balloon. Ending up in a river.

Supplì and sfogliatelle near a minefield.

Driving around playing loud illegal rock music in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Tea with a bunch of hunters in the middle of a sub-equatorial jungle.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a certified Italian and English teacher, if you're interested in Sicilian you should check my podcast!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Well, I got a sh*% load of knowledge to share about my country!

1. Garlic bread and spaghetti bolognese ain't no real Italian food!
2. Sicilian sweets (cannoli, granita, etc.) are rare commodities outside Sicily. Don't be fooled!
3. In Italy we have a simple hand motion to say WTF!
