Me, me, me!

About me

I was born in Naples, Italy, the 19th of February of an unspecified year (withheld for privacy, security and trouble coming to terms with my mature age) which makes me a Pisces and not an Acquarius like I have always thought.

I lived most of my life in Tuscany, circulating between Lucca, Siena and Pisa. In 1997-1998 I was an exchange student in King’s College London, on a monthly scholarship that was barely enough to pay for a week’s rent. In 2000 I relocated to Helsinki, Finland, for a professional experience abroad that was supposed to last at most two years, and that’s where I still am.

The only nickname that has ever stuck on me (with a not very flattering exception that I’d rather not mention here) is “bale”, the first four letters of my last name, hence the name of this site.

About this site

I have set up this site to keep in touch with my family and friends. If you are neither, I doubt you’ll find anything interesting, but you are still welcome!

Per i visitatori italiani: purtroppo non ho tempo di aggiornare il sito in due lingue, per cui devo limitarmi all’inglese. Abbiate pazienza!
