I love red, is my favourite colour since I can remember. I was about five when I dreamt about a red sporty car for me. I still have to have that car, will get it in heaven one day.

Autumn! I'm romantic by nature and I believe autumn is the most romantic season of them all. I guess Italian poets influence played a lot on me when I was growing up in my beloved Italia. One of my favourite poems is San Martino by Giosue' Carducci

Original text in Italian:

San Martino, di Giosue Carducci, da"Rime Nuove", 1887


La nebbia a gl'irti colli
piovigginando sale,
e sotto il maestrale
urla e biancheggia il mar;

ma per le vie del borgo
dal ribollir de' tini
va l'aspro odor dei vini
l'anime a rallegrar.

Gira su' ceppi accesi
lo spiedo scoppiettando:
sta il cacciator fischiando
su l'uscio a rimirar

tra le rossastre nubi
stormi d'uccelli neri,
com'esuli pensieri,
nel vespero migrar. 

 Saint Martin's Day, by Giosue Carducci, from "Rime Nuove", 1887

The fog to the bare hills 
soars in the thin rain,
and below the wind
howls and churns the sea; 

yet through the hamlet's alleys
from the fermenting casks
goes the pungent scent of wines 
to touch a soul with glee.

On the firewood, turns
the skewer crackling:
stands the hunter whistling,
on the threshold to see

in the reddening clouds
flocks of black birds,
like exiled thoughts
as in the dusk they flee.
