A restless man, a fantastic adventure and a book
Since I remember myself, I "play" in various ways in the mountains, the seas and the rivers, often with little or even lesser risks I learned to manage and control. I experienced so happy and intense moments that led me effortlessly in writing a book, a fantastic story. "Odysseus' journey to Symi" describes a seaside adventure in the Aegean that includes everything I think about life, the feeling of freedom, joy and death.
