Cambridge, on the river Cam – September 2019

A sitar player with his lady falcon in Cambridge

Today while I was walking in the city centre I met Paul and his beautiful lady, Duffy. ๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿ˜ Paul is an amazing Sitar player. The special stringed instrument is popular in northern India. Iโ€™ve felt in love with its magical music and the super clever falcon who is Paulโ€™s loyal partner ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต

Radio Dante on Leonardo Da Vinci

Here it is. The podcast of the latest radio show we recorded in the Cambridge 105 Radio studios is online. The episode is about Leonardo Da Vinci on the occasion of the 500th anniversary celebrations. Special guest is the Neapolitan clarinetist and composer Luca Luciano. Enjoy !!

(The first half an hour is in Italian, and the second one in English)


A long day comes to an end, finally. Going home… … where I’ll watch Gomorrah, the series ๐Ÿ˜œ. This is a definitely out of context video. Here there are no alleys, like the song says about Naples. Here there are completely different stories and the rhythm is completely another. Tonight nobody will mess with me … and ciao! ๐Ÿ‘‹
