Ludovico Einaudi

On Monday I watched a live performance on piano of Ludovico Einaudi. Uncredible sweet and romantic, but also tragic and sad. A big emotion and sensation! Really an open heart! And then a good beer with friends! BIG EMOTION!

Our AMAZING movie!

THE BEST EVENING. Yesterday I hosted all my friends in my home to watch the movie we made in Usa, for Gianluca and Lisa marriage!
We were so close in my room, 19 people all together, laughing, applauding, drinking, eating popcorn and french fries!
Many thanks to everyone!!!
Many thanks to Lorenzo who helped me to build the movie, special thanks to Gianluca, Tito and Simone, and a special thanks to all my friends who dedicated to me the best gift: laughing together! Ah... I was forgetting: "Bye Carlo"... :-)

Bye Carlo!

Saravanan's tourist guide!

Past week my collegue from Alstom India, Mr. Saravanan, asked me if I could show him my city! Without any problems... READY TO GO! We walked really a lot! At the beginning we went up to the stairs of the Asinelli Tower! 498 STEPS! Then I showed him the most famous monument, Il nettuno , Piazza maggiore (the most famous square in my city), and all the characteristic streets with all kind of shops!!!
At the end, later 4 hours walking, the temperature was so cold and we decided to go to eat into a local restaurant! Now he's an expert of my city! SO COOL!

My collegue from Alstom India

It's REALLY a pleasure to introduce you my colleague from Alstom India, COIMBATORE (it's the name of the city)... Nadanthai Ramasamy Saravanan
He's working with me on an Indian project I've been working since one month.
He's 26 and he's really nice. We had the lunch together and we laughed a lot!
We talked about the differences between Italy and India. We are quite the same, even if sometimes I am ashamed of Italy (frankly speaking more than sometimes).
Meeting new people and knowing about new countries is WONDERFUL!

Right Brain v Left Brain

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise? If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.
Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies

uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
risk taking

For me that's definitely ANTI-CLOCKWISE!
My brain is left oriented!
Some friends of mine CLOCKWISE... And you?

My dear friends it's a big pleasure to tell you that I had the opportunity to host my special friend from California... KYNAN! He visited 18 country in 9 monthes: Vietnam, Cambogia, Hungary, Bulgary, Poland, Czech Republic, Albany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Serbia, Croazia, Grech, again in Poland and in Czech Repubblic, and other countries I don't remember now.
We spent 2 days here and here you can see him while he's eating my TAGLIATELLE AL RAGU', the local dish...
These TAGLIATELLE were amazing!

I'm back...

As you already noticed, US was more than I expected! So I'm a little bit scared, because I really have no idea about other amazing things I can do. Frankly speaking in these days I did nearly nothing so much important. For example today I'm back at work later 4 days OFF. But during this long weekend I did nothing... Just chilling and relax myself on my couch! Maybe the best things? :-)
Just to remind me... I was in Paris too! This is another gift! Wounderful!

Lisa and Gianluca TOGETHER FOREVER and EVER

I lived a dream. I've never felt such emotions!
Seeing my best friend got married with the sweetest girl, where everything was new for me, because it was the first time I was in NJ!
I was considered from Gianluca and Lisa the best man, like Simone. Lisa was standing in front of me in the church during the ceremony and she was more than beautiful, more than everything. Her eyes were telling to everybody: "I love this man!".
It was a big pleasure speaking in front of Lisa and Gianluca guests in the restaurant but the emotions was something unbelievable so I'm sorry but I don't remember quite anything I told. I can't wait for seeing my speach!
Every time I see this movie my heart is full of love!


What should I say about Manhattan?
I just don't know... More than AMAZING, more than INCREDIBLE, more than a DREAM, more than WOUNDERFUL, more than "bellissimo", more than everything I saw.
No words, just look at this pictures, maybe you can to breath my sensations...! :-)


It's a mix between a working and artistic city.
There are a lot of american buildings, sculptures and monuments!
In this city the Rocky's movie was born!
And another dream of mine became true! I run through the Rocky's steps (92 steps), and at the end I screamed: "ADRIANAAAAAAAAAA"!


One of the most important scientist of the past century lived here! He's Einstein! You know him? :-) Compare to Stanford, here you feel more comfortable, maybe because Stanford is so impressive or maybe because the University of Princeton is not as big as University of Stanford!
Anyway... This summer I visited two of the most famous Universities of all over this planet!
