I have a personal blog, I Viaggi Della Druida. It is in Italian and it was founded in 2008. It focuses solely on introspective and physical travel. My assumption is that the body is a means of movement for the heart and the soul.
In a few words: 1) mental itinerary is the core and no experience leaves a mark without it; 2) physical movement is not necessary to travel; 3) a bit of self-analysis is a good thing.
Every once in a while, I also write short stories. I have been published sometimes in paper books and e-books, and as a guest of some authoritative people of the Italian advertising industry.
I gave life to a feminine character, Celeste, who lives in a stack of stuff awaiting to be neatened. She is around 30 years old, she has a best friend and a job she likes a lot, and she is permanently waiting for “that incoming phone call” (oh yes, the one that never comes).
The Dots Connection is a consultancy founded in The Netherlands 2017, specialized in communication consultancy both for private and business.
My mission is to transmit empathy, telling about stories and emotions hiding behind every product or service, leveraging on memories, feeling, images, sounds, smiles and colours.
This is the reason why I prefer choosing carefully my clients, and this way I offer high precision near to flawless.
