Thanks so much for your questions! I had a lot of fun answering them and hope you will enjoy finding out my replies as well!
𝙁𝙖𝙫 𝙘𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙗𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨: Zendaya, Tom Holland, Tom Hiddleston (MARVEL all the way, if you’re wondering). Also, Robin Williams holds an irreplaceable place in my heart. If we’re talking about Youtubers, definitely TwoSet Violin and Jenna Moreci.
𝙁𝙖𝙫 𝙗𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙨: I’m a long time fan of Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons and I also enjoy listening to Lorde, Alan Walker, AViVA, Melanie Martinez, Arctic Monkeys, Maggie Lindemann, The Maine, Queen Simple Plan and Fall Out Boy.
Recently, I'm obsessed with (and getting into) Cavetown, the Score, Halsey, Ava Max, Tove Styrke, MISSIO, SAINT PHNX and CRMNL. As for singers of my same nationality, Tiziano Ferro and Ermal Meta are my favourites (if you’re Italian too, you’ll probably know them)
𝙃𝙤𝙜𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙨 𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙚: ℍ𝕦𝕗𝕗𝕝𝕖𝕡𝕦𝕗𝕗! I knew I was meant to be one even before taking the actual Pottermore test. Head in the clouds, free spirit, a BIT inconstant, clumsy, often the outsider of the group and there you have it, a perfect sketch of myself.
But fierce points of mine are surely hard work, loyalty, kindness... All traits that define me and, in a way, make me stand out. Plus, I’m proud of saying my house is the same as Tonks and Newt’s! Oh, and I’m a particular good finder, so...
𝘿𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛 𝙚𝙢𝙤/𝙜𝙤𝙩𝙝, 𝙜𝙞𝙧𝙡𝙮, 𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙙/𝙜𝙚𝙚𝙠 𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙤𝙢𝙗𝙤𝙮?: See, the thing is, I don’t really fit into a stereotype (nor do I like stereotypes at all, for that matter).
I can easily tell you that for me literature is a way of living more than just a hobby, that I enjoy shopping and taking care of myself and my body and that I also have a weird obsession with black, blue and purple clothes.
But then again, it is not the same for make up. I usually wear little (mascara, eyebrows and lipstick), to none at all . The most ‘extreme’ make up style you’d ever see me flaunt is eyeliner and, again, I really do love it!
But if you ask me to put myself into only one of these categories, I’m simply unable to give you an answer. I can’t fit :( So that would make me a dark girly nerd, I guess?

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙜𝙤𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜?: Growing up, as a kid, I had a whiteboard. You know, one of those little, portable boards with a wipeable, white surface? I used to draw there the stories of random characters that, someday, decided to show up and play ‘peek-a-boo’ on the window of my mind.
So, there’s this particular story idea that I’ve never been able to let go of and that, over the years, has grown a lot, until it developed to be something that I think could have potential as a fantasy trilogy. What set me off to writing was this childhood whim on which I kept — and still keep — on daydreaming about.
𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝘆𝗽𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗹𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝘀 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗲𝗻𝗷𝗼𝘆 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴? (𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘆: 𝗻𝗮𝗺𝗲 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗲𝘅𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀): The main genre I enjoy reading in is fantasy. Favourite works of mine include Erikson’s ‘Malazan Book of the Fallen’ series, Tolkien’s ‘LOTR’, Riordan’s ‘Percy Jackson’ and ‘Heroes of Olympus’ sagas, Hamilton’s ‘Rebel’ trilogy.
Recently, I’ve also been reading Schwab’s ‘Shades Of Magic’ series, Sanderson’s ‘Mistborn’ trilogy and Meyer’s ‘Lunar Chronicles’. But I’m actually also a fairytales, mythologies and classics lover.
I’m head over heels for Carroll’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass’, I’m into Greek, Norse, Egyptian and Japanese mythologies, and I’m just starting out my journey into the timeless, but daunting, world of classics — some of my favourites are surely Pirandello’s ‘One, No One and One Hundred Thousand’,
Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’, Wilde’s ‘The Picture Of Dorian Grey’ and Dostoevsky’s ‘White Nights.’ As for poetry and short-stories, my first choice would be Edgar Allan Poe — he’s sensational — though I also enjoy the bewildering that comes with reading Kafka.

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙝𝙮?: I’m definitely a cat-lover (though I don’t discriminate nor scratch or bite: mind you, my favourite mythological creature is the great three-headed hound Cerberus himself!) Why? As soon as my eyes rest on kittens, I just feel like I want to pet these petty pets! Excuse my wordplay...
𝙒𝙝𝙤 𝙞𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙗𝙞𝙜𝙜𝙚𝙧 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚?: This is a though one, as I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by positive people both in my family and as concerns friendships — by that I mean those I decide to keep hanging out with and those I cut away from my life.
I definitely have to say, though, my mom is my biggest supporter. Both of us have an upbeat, spontaneous personality, a little bit snappy, pretty emotional as well and, again, both of us we tend to suffer in silence and close ourselves off to the world when something is upsetting us.
I guess that’s why we relate so much and, for the matter, so greatly to each other. I love how she can read through the lines of my face, without ever making mistakes — though, I must admit, I’m a very expressive person and so is she.
She is always cheering for me and giving me suggestions. Oh, and she was the first one I came out to as bisexual and, though it was a totally new reality for her, she’s always been a very open-minded and welcoming person and has always supported me and made me feel valid ever since. I love her to the moon and back (and even beyond)!
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙢 𝙤𝙛 𝙬𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜?: I don’t know if you’ve guessed it yet, from an answer if mine to one of your questions or/and from reading my pieces, but my favourite form of writing is definitely wordplay!
Especially the first poem I published on here, ‘Alice, Alice’ is full of repetitions and alliteration! Same thing goes for one of the parts in ‘lowercase thoughts’. In general, I play around with a bit of wordplay in all of my pieces.
I just love how similar-sounding words can word out different meanings in so many colourful ways! Only allegory can compare (and comply) with wordplay, in my opinion! A perfect combination, as a matter of fact, I dare say.
Yeah, Carroll’s influence and love for this same subject is quite pronounced on my writing and reading experience... If you were referring to writing genres, instead, my bet is on fantasy for sure!
𝘿𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙤𝙨 𝙤𝙧 𝙨𝙢𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙛𝙤𝙤𝙙?: Doritos: I can’t get enough of the taste. Those corn tortilla crisps are the epitome of my childhood.
𝘿𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣 𝙩𝙤 𝙢𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙨? (𝙅𝙚𝙨𝙪𝙨 𝘾𝙝𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧, 𝙥𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙤𝙢 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙖, 𝘼𝙡𝙚𝙭𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙃𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙩𝙤𝙣): The first and only musical I’ve ever watched is ‘La La Land’ and it absolutely broke my heart. I’m still traumatised at its mention.
SPOILER ALERT: I shipped them so much; why didn’t they end up together?! I legit CRIED minute after minute after seeing the end! Whyyy?
I’ve heard talking well about Phantom of the Opera (of which I’m going to read the book anyway, at some point) and Alexander Hamilton’s musicals. I’ve never seen the Harry Potter’s one, though I’m a huge fan of the books (while I’m not that fond of the author anymore)
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙏𝙑 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙬?: I’m in love with BBC productions, especially Once Upon A Time (though I’m still watching the earliest series), Merlin (a fresh retelling of the well-known Arthurian legend cycle) and Sherlock Holmes (who doesn’t love the genius detective and his formidable doctor partner?)
Also, recently, my mom, my twin sister and I have become fans of the Turkish series ‘Dear Past’ / ‘Sisterhood’ (idk which title is the official translation in English). By the way, hats off, Turkish people: I’m in love with your movies now! I’m a fan of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D too and I can’t wait for Hawkeye’s TV series to come out!

𝙈𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚?: My dad for sure. He’s a member of the “Army of Carabineers” (Arma dei Carabinieri), which, long story short, is the national gendarmerie of Italy — my country.
I have a lot of respect for him and the life he’s chosen to live according to; he’s someone who always spreads hope and, even during this global emergency, he’s stood, unbending, on the front lines to protect the safety of the people around him and fight for what really matters.
𝙒𝙝𝙤 𝙥𝙪𝙨𝙝𝙚𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙖 𝙗𝙚𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙧?: My twin sister; she is not only a significant ally in my dreams, but she’s also a fantastic writer herself! When we were children, we used to sit down and come up with silly stories together all the time! I believe she’s meant for great things: she’s truly an angel and a considerable inspiration for me.
If you’re talking about authors, my choice falls on Steven Erikson, no doubt. He’s an amazing author, one whose extraordinary abilities I wish more people could acknowledge and know about!
The main elements that leave me breathless, as I read his works, are the way he portrays diversity in his writing and how his worldbuilding is so rich that the universe he created really does seem to come to life, in front of the reader’s eyes.
Also, he never fails to get the spins in my head gearing by addressing some philosophical standpoints or the harshness of different types of realities.
𝘿𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙩𝙨?: Unluckily, I don’t. My mom is allergic to dust, cats and dogs’ hair (and many more things) and my dad had to deal with a cyst related to our canine friends, in the past. However cats usually ‘explore’ my neighbourhood and my garden, so I guess that counts as a tiny victory too!

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩’𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩 𝙗𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙙?: This is an easy one for me — and a though one to forget about, at the same time My username, which I’m actually really proud of, also directly points it out. Bang on, you guessed it: the first book I fell in love with is Carroll’s “Alice In Wonderland”.
It was certainly not the first book I ever read, but it indeed was the first book that made my heart falter. I remember enjoying it, for the first time, in a booklet format that narrated the story as it was adapted by Disney, just in a more synthetic way.
But, for me, reading the actual classic work paved the way to a whole new gateway of emotions, inspiration and interpretations. Carroll is a master at wordplay and allegory, and a superb one at that. Plus, as a bonus point, his fairytale reminds me of my bygone childhood times – which never hurts, you know. Who wouldn’t want to dream a bit, from time to time?
𝙎𝙪𝙢𝙢𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙧 𝙬𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧?: Since I don’t suffer the heat, however hot it might be, I’m going to pick summer. Of course, the fact that I’m free from school plays a factor in this decision.
But, in fact, what I love about summertime is not that I’m free from commitments, but that I can commit to what engages me best establishing freely my schedule. Aesthetically speaking, though, winter is unbeatable. On the other hand, since I live in the south of Italy, I rarely even get to see snowflakes falling, let alone a beautiful, completely snowy landscape, so...
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙛 𝙢𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙘 𝙙𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣 𝙩𝙤?: I have a wide range of musical tastes that depend solely on one thing: the mood I’m in. I’m a fan of both rock and pop, and I do enjoy both dubstep and classical music. See? Opposites do exist and they also coexist.
𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙚𝙥𝙩 𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚, 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙥𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚?: I’m a self-taught traditional artist and pianist — though I took lessons kind of regularly for almost three years.
I also love languages; at school, I study three, namely English, German and French and I’m trying to learn a bit of Japanese by myself, before investing time in private lessons (hopefully, crossing fingers). Soon, I’ll be also attempting my luck at roller skating on my own, ‘cause I’m an ice skating enthusiast but there’s no ice rink close to my town.

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩’𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜/ 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙮?: Strolls, the peculiar smell of books, both old and new, and their printed words that take me far away to other galaxies, late night chats, my crush’s smile, her eyes, her voice, vanilla ice cream, the scent and the flavour of my mom’s home made pizza and bread, falling asleep on hazy days, lulled by only the rain and the thunder...
Happiness in a nutshell!
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙣𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙡𝙨?: It’s a tie between Hamilton’s “Rebel” trilogy, Riordan’s sagas and Erikson’s “Malazan” series. Also, Schwab’s “Shades Of Magic” is already making its way through my favourites, though I’ve only read the first book!
𝙄𝙛 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙢𝙚𝙚𝙩 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙗𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙞𝙩 𝙗𝙚?: I would really love to meet Lila from Schwab’s “Shades Of Magic” series! I feel like she would be a very cool girl to hang out with, and I swoon over her sassiness.
I wouldn’t necessarily need to live the thrill of adventure side by side with her and her ship. Just undertaking a casual conversation, possibly while strolling through the streets of a mesmerising Victorian London, would be fine.
𝙄𝙛 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙡𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝘿𝙞𝙨𝙣𝙚𝙮 𝙛𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙨𝙮 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙝 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙞𝙩 𝙗𝙚?: Definitely “The Beauty and The Beast”! The pretty dresses and the infinite library in the castle have always had an irresistible pull on me, I must confess! But I’m also one who’s always rooting for the underdog, so I guess the Beast and I could make pretty great mates!

𝘼𝙩 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙙𝙞𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙬𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜?: I’ve adored writing for as long as I can remember. As I’ve said before, my sister and I used to come up together with silly stories all the time, and we even used to ‘roleplay’ them with dolls and stuffed animals.
Mind you, though, I really started taking writing seriously in middle school, when I was more or less twelve. Ever since then, I have never let go of it; rather, this passion is growing so strong that, in the future, I’m sure I want to work in a highly-related field.
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙙𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙪𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚?: I’m madly, hopelessly in love with literature, mythology, languages and cultures in general. My wish would be to work in the publishing industry, in the future, both as an editor and, who knows, maybe also as a published author, some day.
I wouldn’t mind also either being a journalist or a university professor. I’d like to travel a lot and see the world. Most important, though, even if my path sways in another, unpredictable direction and I never end up working in the field of my dreams, I just wish to be able to find happiness.
