In His Own Words

About him

My father is Italian, and my mother is Swedish, but due to my international upbringing and schooling in the U.S. and EU my first language is English. My professional background is in economics and entrepreneurship; I've lived and worked 15 years in the United States (Seattle, San Diego, Boston), graduated from Brown University in Providence, RI (USA), and have lived 24 years in northern Italy. I am currently the founder of an Internet content provider company based in Venice, Italy which generated 4 million Euro in sales in 2014 as well as a smaller financial translation company which allows me to now work remotely: from home, or in Rome, or occasionally London (where my brothers live).

However, my primary interests and aspirations lie in traditional philosophy and the Arts, in particular the literary and martial arts. My literary interests are related to poetry and novel writing, with the 19th century Romantic movement as my primary passion and influence (English, Italian and Swedish literature: the languages I speak).

I have also trained for 16 years, and am now authorized to teach, two traditional martial arts: classical Italian fencing under a "Maestro" in Milan, and traditional Japanese Kobudo bujutsu under a "Sensei" in Noda, Japan. These are martial systems for duelling and self-protection with direct master to student lineages traceable back to the 1700's - in the case of Italian classical fencing - and the 1400's for the Japanese system. They include complex methodologies for internal psychological development, including philosophical guidance of how to live one's life - in terms of character and honor - and have also always been considered Arts, using the body as the artistic medium.

Both the literary arts (Romanticism in particular) and the martial arts were always closely allied to traditional philosophy, or true philosophy: constant rational inquiry on how to live one's life, and how to transcend it. Philosophia: "Love of wisdom", where wisdom is knowledge of the ends and means to a Good Life.

About his ideal match

I have no fixed match requirements: there must, of course, be chemistry; an interest in the arts, as well as an inclination to be philosophical and a loving/compassionate character, would be ideal.

I have no interest in short-term flings, or shallow relationships: I am looking for either friendship, or true love with someone who wants to build a future and a family:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

(W. Shakespeare)
