Where in the world do we find you?
I’m living in Udine, a small city in northeastern Italy.
What is your favourite room at home?
Home is where I belong; where I can feel most like myself and enjoy time with my family and friends. My favourite space in my house is a glass corner that looks out over the treetops.
Where do you like to eat out?
In a little restaurant outside of my town where food is bio [organic], genuine, fresh, and the chef is a friend of mine.
What is on your playlist?
I love all kinds of music. What I listen to depends on the moment and what I need at the time.
Some of my favourites are "Promises" by Floating Points, Pharaoh Sanders & The London Symphony Orchestra, "Fleurs" by Franco Battiato, "Carnage" by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, "Afrique Victime" by Mdou Moctar, "Sound Ancestors" by Madlib, "Donda" by Kanye West, "Nine" by Sault and "Stop Making Sense" by Talking Heads.
