About me

I was born and raised mainly in Sicily.

I have to thank my family for the man I'm today: they made me study, travel and experience life. I studied Japanese for 4 years at the University in Naples. This was a very important and positive period in my life because I had to cope for the first time with different problems without asking any help to my parents. It was a very hard period but I probably grew up even earlier than my two older brothers. Anyway the moment that really changed my life and my family's life is connected to a terrible date May 15, 2007: my father suddenly passed away. We had had dinner together at 9:30 pm and before midnight, after wishing each other good night, he was not there with us anymore. I can still hear my mother's crying. That was something I couldn't really accept for a very long time. He was just 60 years old and he was about to retire and finally enjoy life a little bit. Since that moment I'm completely a different man. I'm not getting discouraged anymore if not for really serious problems. I'm enjoying life and I don't take so much time before coming to a decision. I don't want say my philosophy is to "seize the day", but a kind of. 

I have been working as a tour director since 1998. I have mainly worked with American, English and Japanese travelers. Besides working in Sicily I have also escorted groups around Northern Italy and Switzerland for a couple of years. I have always studied and worked abroad since I was fourteen years old. I took some three weeks summer classes in Great Britain, France and Japan. Moreover I started working in Japan as an Italian teacher for japanese students for about one year.
