I was a student, an adolescent, an idealist, a Fury, a young man, a nephew, a son, Anger, Lover, baker, barman, waiter, cook, dreamer, writer, mask, husband, uncle, player, athlete, rugby player, rugby coach, student again, humanist, philosopher and thousands other things. Adesso ho deciso di essere e di cominciare da Marco. Pertanto mi diletto con piacere a leggere, recensire e intanto amplio il mio Universo personale.
