About the Host, Emiliano E Giacomo
Ciao a tutti!
Sono Emiliano e abito a Firenze, città che non vedo l´ora di mostrarvi.
Adoro cucinare e leggere. Sono una persona estroversa che adora fare nuove (website hidden) e mio fratello Giacomo affittiamo le nostre stanze quando non siamo a Firenze perchè tutti e due studiamo all'estero. Dato che la nonna non e' esperta di informatica le diamo una mano gestendo anche il suo appartamento.
Quando noi non ci siamo mia mamma vi darà il benvenuto!
Che altro dirvi.. vi aspetto a Firenze! :)
