I am italian and I have been living in Denmark for 3 years. I have to say that Danmark is very beautiful land. But it is a far cry from Caserta, Sorrento, Amalfi. I miss them. But coming to Danmark was my dream.
When I was a child I read H.C.Andersen´s fairy tales and I was very impressed by their landscapes and animals. In my teenagers years I stumbled upon H.C.Andersen´s biography and all the things I thought about him changed. I wanted to meet H.C.Anderesen´s people, and to see the country where he was born.
However I must confess that Shakespeare also has contributed to increase my curiosity about this country. Hamlet’s castle must be visited at least once in a lifetime.
But mostly what I wanted to know was the history of this country, since the only things we know about Danmark in Italy is ” the Vikings”. Denmark and allthough we know Nordic design, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are conceived as one single thing.
Here I could learn about the difference between these three countries. I stumbled on the biographies of Grundvig, Karen Blixer, Jakob Ris and others. I appreciated Danish design more and more and learned that even though the Danish language is hard when it is sung in the church by choir it suddenly becomes an ancient and magical language.
I like to get in contact with people. I like to see my friends periodically and do many things together: to visit museums, to have long walks and conversations in different languages. I like to speak Danish, but also Italian and French. I also like listening to Spanish songs, which I understand very well.
I love cooking Italian dishes for my friends and making desserts for them. I like it when they explain Danish recipes to me, I really enjoy cooking new dishes.
My personal interests are poetri, music, art and litterature.
My husband is a composer and a pianist and I love to work with him. We have written pop songs together in the past and we love to confront each other artistically. I like writing lyrics and helping him with his music. He loves to give me advises and new input for my graphic works. We are very critical of each other and this leads us to improve more and more. We love reading. At home we have more books than furniture.
My husband, my cat and me are a beautiful family 🙂
