The 20/20, 08/2004
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Sitting in front of a mountain lake surrounded by a forest. Elena
is relaxing and sleeps hugged to me. Two bottles of Champagne
(Sadi-Malot millesimé is enough, not that pricey, but tastable
and quite original) at hand. Weather tending to cloudy but crossed
by some rare ray of sun. Silence. Nobody around for miles. My pistol
If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be...
The Invisible Man
...and what would you do?
I would cry. Finally.
Which person (living or dead) do you most admire?
Martin Luther King
What is the one trait that you hate most about yourself?
My black/satanic side. I've always been fighting against it, as it's
my arch enemy. Satan and God are, in fact, my true enemies, so... I
guess I'm going towards an "invisible exile", even though I'm
afraid...AH, AH, AH!!!
What is the one trait that you hate most about others?
People who are unable to love and respect themselves.
What is your greatest extravagance?
I'm the paler little bear among so many tanned Italian gorillas!
In what way would you prefer to die?
Alone. Not having anybody suffering for me.
What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
Which time period or event (past or future) would
you most like to visit?
What is your greatest regret?
Having killed a child when I was a child.
When and where were you the happiest?
A few months ago, when "Invisible Front. 2005" came out, after too
many nightmares. Impossible to explain what vicissitudes I'm talking
about without being taken as a lunatic. Anyway... yes, I was happy,
because we finally made the album I always like to listen to.
What do you consider your greatest achievement so far?
If there is "life after death", what would you
choose to come back as?
I wouldn't like to come back, really. I only like doing that if
there's some real necessity for somebody I love, so in such an
unlucky situation... I guess I would like to reappear as a kinda
What is your most treasured possession?
A book: "Detti segreti di Gesù" ("Jesus's secret maxims"), compiled
by Luigi Moraldi.
Which natural gift or ability would you most like
I'd like to become a little bit more carefree, having some breath
of relief, sometimes.
What is your most marked characteristic?
I'm endlessly surprised by the world's negativity, despite I'm not
a baby! So, I'm too often angry and irritated.
What do you value most in your friends?
Have no friends.
How would you describe the perfect room for yourself?
A combination of icy "modern" style touch and warmer characteristics.
So, I will have to place a tall Artemide monolith-like metal lamp
close to a Sixties-oriented sober blue sofà. A small Liberty style
table made of black cast iron and Carrara marble, looking like the
ones you can find in those old cafés when you're in Paris, Wien,
Buenos Aires and Venezia. Some classic, and a few contemporary,
music records almost everywhere. Two or three book-cases: black,
almost light parquet. TV-set by LG: 21 inch monitor, reminding of
old sci-fi flicks. An Acer Aspire 1610 notebook not running any music
files but Photoshop 7.0 hidden somewhere. Large window and balcony
door looking at a garden containing a small lake. May I add a
Maxfield Parrish-like morning?
Who would you most like to fight?
What is your motto?
Do often talk to Gods, not to men.
