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!

đ™đ™–đ™« đ™˜đ™šđ™Ąđ™šđ™—đ™§đ™žđ™©đ™žđ™šđ™š: 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.

đ™đ™–đ™« 𝙗𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙹: 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)

đ™ƒđ™€đ™œđ™Źđ™–đ™§đ™©đ™š đ™đ™€đ™Ș𝙹𝙚: ℍ𝕩𝕗𝕗𝕝𝕖𝕡𝕩𝕗𝕗! 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...

đ˜żđ™€ đ™źđ™€đ™Ș đ™˜đ™€đ™Łđ™šđ™žđ™™đ™šđ™§ đ™źđ™€đ™Ș𝙧𝙹𝙚𝙡𝙛 đ™šđ™ąđ™€/đ™œđ™€đ™©đ™, 𝙜𝙞𝙧𝙡𝙼, 𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙙/𝙜𝙚𝙚𝙠 đ™€đ™§ đ™©đ™€đ™ąđ™—đ™€đ™ź?: 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?

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.

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.

Why? As soon as my eyes rest on kittens, I just feel like I want to pet these petty pets! Excuse my wordplay...

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)!

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!

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)

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!

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.

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.

đ˜żđ™€ đ™źđ™€đ™Ș đ™đ™–đ™«đ™š 𝙖𝙣𝙼 đ™„đ™šđ™©đ™š?: 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!

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?

𝙎đ™Ș𝙱𝙱𝙚𝙧 đ™€đ™§ đ™Źđ™žđ™Łđ™©đ™šđ™§?: 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...

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.

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.

Also, Schwab’s “Shades Of Magic” is already making its way through my favourites, though I’ve only read the first book!

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.

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!

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.

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.
