If you were invited to speak at a conference and you didn’t have to talk about your work, what would you talk about?
I came from a small and green village in the Piedmont region and it's more than ten years that I live in the heart of Milan.
Sometimes I have the feeling that I need a break, I need a change, I need to go to live in a house in the countryside where I can have a more balanced and calm mind.
Maybe humans are not really built to live in the city, we need to be in contact with nature, we need to breathe fresh and clean air.

What have you changed your mind about over the past two years and why?
