What do you do and why do you do it?

I'm a front office agent in a hotel located in the center of Milan. The reasons why i do my work are two: first, i love discovering new things every day from people who come from all over the world. I'm so curious! i love listening the traveler's stories. Second, i can give them part of me just showing the city where i'm coming from and give them all the information that i know to enjoy everything that can be uforguettable.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Ed Sheeran, Adele and Sam Smith are the three main singers that with their songs can feel me an emotion during heartbreak moments.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

My favourite TV shows in Italy is called "IL TRONO DI SPADE" i'm talking about....... "GAME OF THRONES". Absolutely the best!

Name some spots in Milan that are good for a Tinder date.

I don't have tinder. I know what it is just because one of my friend use it. But... in any case i suppose that i will choose Signorvino, with a glass of wine everything will be better. Goodbye embarrassment just enjoy the special date!

Who’s your hero and where in Milan would you take them out for a serious hang?

And if i say that i haven't a heroe?

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I don't really love spend lots of time and lots of money for shopping. In few minutes i can choose what I like and what I can wear well. The shops are common as mango, banana republic, zara and stradivarius. I know that are common but these shops have all the clothes with the style that i like to wear.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

There are lots of bar and pubs where you can drink a cocktail in Porta Romana but i will never choose this area to go out and drink something. I prefer to stay in places full of peolpe as the Navigi and Sempione.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

I love going, during a sunny day, to Giardini Indro Montanelli and play chess with the old Milanese man and women that give you lots of tips to win easily. Be careful, listen well and try to win!

Where can you get the best cocktail in Milan? Which one do you like?

Notthingam Forrest in my opinion is the best cocktail bar in Milan. My favourite is the MARTINI WITH DISTILLATO DI FIENO. I will not write the ingredient of this cocktail. Try it! ;)

Where would you take your partner in Milan if you wanted to really pamper them?

I would like also to pamper myself! So...QC Terme Milano will be a perfect idea! Sauna, Massage, Hydromassage will be the best thing to spend a beautiful and relax day with you sweet half part. You can pamper him/her but also yourself!

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

When i travel abroad i miss lots of snack/food that i can find just in Italy. At the beginning the famous italian ice cream! In general if i should say what kind of food i miss more i will choose all my mother's cakes :)

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

I'm in love with Seville. It is the most fascinating European city I have ever visited.
