Hometown: Trento

For three years I’ve been living in this town, Trento. I was actually born here, but grew up in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere. I’ve always thought that I would have never ended up studying so close to home, but this city actually hosts the best Italian law school, so I could…

Cinematographic travel – “Radiofreccia”

Warning: although this post is in English, it is abut an Italian film, which of course I watched in Italian. So get ready for some quotes in Italian! You may ask yourself why I’m not writing this post in Italian then, and the answer is that I want this film to be known outside my…

How it hurts to say NO to traveling

As I said in my first post in this blog, I consider myself totally addicted to traveling. I can’t stop myself from booking a ticket, packing a suitcase and having that sensation of feeling both lost and excited at the same time. So when my friend Sunniva offered me to escape from the cold winter…

Going to Murano? Don’t stop there…

Tourists in Venice are often tempted to go over to the famous Island of Murano. One of the islands of the Venetian archipelago, Murano is well-known all over the world for its handmade colorful glass.
