I am an academic based at the University of Venice but I live in Florence. I'm very fortunate because I commute between two very beautiful towns; but what I most like to do is travel for pleasure and not for work. I also love skiing and swimming and, apart from work, I spend my time reading, meeting friends; I often give small dinner parties for friends in the house that you are viewing and they are always a success... I love cooking and having guests...I also love to meet new people. ciao.
