1. Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living and how did you get there?
I live thanks to my art doing shows for events; I got there by pure chance, I think it looked for me.
2. At what moment did you finally realize what you wanted to do “when you grew up”?
After the lockdown I realized that the only certainty in my life is my art, the only one that gives me both economic and spiritual satisfaction.
3. Your secret dream?

4. Among the many activities you practice, also go on stilts and unicycle. How long did it take you to learn and what major obstacles did you encounter?
Learning to carry stilts was easy enough for me; having two points of support, it took me just a few days. The real difficulty was learning to use the unicycle, a really complicated tool. Having a single point of support, you have to learn to manage the balance at 360 °, you cannot balance too much to the right or too much to the left, neither too forward nor too far back, but you must balance constantly.
5. Speaking of balance … What is balance for you?
I’ll answer you with two quotes from the book “Meditation for those in a hurry” by Osho:
* do not take things to the extreme, do not cling to a polarity, otherwise you will lose balance
* walks like a tightrope walker. Only in constantly balancing between two extremes lies the middle way. The medium is a living context, not a fixed and dead point that can be reached once and for all: it must be found at every moment, always and again. Observe a tightrope walker: it’s an experience
