Alessio

Alessio was born in 1985 in the town of Marsciano, in the beautiful umbrian countryside and then he was raised for most of his years in Rome.

He studied high school as an IT and later on studied engineering for a while to then change his mind and start a new career as a professional pilot, which brought him first in Florida and then to Sweden.

He loves cooking more than eating (he has a professional cooking diploma) and he got interested in Sweden because of the big offer in ethnic and vegetarian food.

He is currently living in Stockholm and the only thing he misses of Italy is his Ducati motorbike and his dog, Nikita.

Like a woodpecker, Sweden started hitting my head a long time ago. And like a cancer, it started as a little curiosity which became this new adventure I’m about to live. I’d like to write “about” Sweden but I have a very big flaw…I haven’t been there yet! 🙂 My
