I will start writing about Italy, because I think I resemble my beloved country somehow. Italy is not only full of historical sites and modern cities, seaside, mountains, and lakes, but it also offers a special atmosphere rich of good food, extraordinary people, different traditions. Passion, love and happiness are everywhere. Just like my country, I have many different facets and resources, and a positive energy. I am always trying to learn something new and find a new story to listen to: this is an essential part in my life, even when I am very busy with my full-time job…
Someone to hold me tight
That would be very nice
Someone to love me right
That would be very nice
Someone to understand each little dream in me
Someone to take my hand and be a team with me
So nice life would be so nice
If one day I find
Someone who would take my hand and samba through life with me
Someone to cling to me stay with me right or wrong
Someone to sing to me some little samba song
Someone to take my heart and give his heart to me
Someone who’s ready to give love a start with…
This is not another book about the Holocaust. It is about persons and families, about houses, about lives which were terminated in terrible circumstances. It is about forgiveness and justice.
It makes you think what you would do if you got in contact with someone who was a Nazi colonel.
The author gives the victims a human face, she tells their stories, she describes their personalities. She makes you realize how terrible it must have been and imagine if this tragedy had happened to you. She helps you remember all the lost families.

During one of my first months on Medium, when I was extremely insecure about my writing, Liam Ireland gave me a gift which I will never forget.
By some miracle, this kind writer happened to read one of my posts, and mentioned it in his article:
When I realized what he did to help me, I was close to tears. I found it a special gift, because it made me hope in my future as a writer, and in my daily efforts. It made me dream I could do something interesting and it encouraged me to continue writing. …
You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
It took me a couple of years before I became aware that I deserved a pay raise.
I was expecting the company to recognize my value and efforts, and to give me a raise without even asking. Yet, if you don’t ask, most of the time you will not get anything, because your employer will assume that you’re happy with your salary. Or because they are busy with something else.
Therefore I decided to ask for it, and I worked on my speech for a few…
Yesterday morning I met my colleague Paolo at the bar. He was complaining about the difficulties he is facing in seducing an Italian woman. He said it’s impossible to make them happy: you do your best, and they seem to want more, or something different. You need to be intelligent, passionate, elegant, smart, rich but with true values, and still, it’s not enough. And I must admit my colleague is a very nice person and a fascinating guy.
Actually, Italian women are often described as ‘high maintenance, but is this the case? Yes, they are passionate, generous, and spontaneous. They…

The first girl who came to meet me, and visit the house seemed to be from another planet. …
A few years ago, during my last holiday abroad with a friend, I fell in love with an old man.
On a rainy evening, we reached the hotel by the seaside where we had booked a room. Marc, the owner, came to open the door. As soon as I saw him, the world stopped, and my feelings completely changed. I forgot about the stress of traveling, about my tiredness, and about myself.
I suddenly felt I loved him. I imagine that he realized my unusual reaction because, even if I was the one who booked the room and kept contact…
