While being a designer, I'm a man with many interests and extra-curricula activities. Some are linked to my cultural heritage, while others are topics I've come across in my life.
Paleontology and fossils: during my life, I've visited many museums in different Countries, sucg as Bolca and Milano (Italy), London (UK), Washington (USA) and Solnhofen (DE). I still have my private fossil collection at home.
Arbëreshë culture: a linguistic and ethnic Albanian minority community living in southern Italy, especially the regions of Basilicata, Molise, Calabria and Sicily. Arbëreshë settled in Southern Italy in the 15th to 18th centuries AD in several waves of migrations, following the death of the Albanian national hero George Kastrioti Skanderbeg and the gradual conquest of Albania and throughout the Byzantine Empire by the Ottoman Turks.
Origins of rock'n'roll: as a rockabilly music lover, researching about the true origins of rock'n'roll music is always fun and brings some new additions to my CD collection.
Ufology: back when I was a high school student I began reading books about UFOs and parapsychology. Ever since, I got in touch with many UFO researchers in Italy and Switzerland.
Dogs: while I do not own a dog, I love them, especially Beagles.
Information technology: new trends and technologies, especially if developed by Apple.
Memberships in cultural associations
As an active man, I belong to a few associations that are connected to the topics covered above.
