I am an Italian independent journalist and researcher who lives and works in the US since 2006.
Former editor and publisher in Italy for three decades, I have studied and worked in Italy, Germany and US.
I attended the School of Oriental Studies in Rome, deepening the knowledge of ancient indian philosophies.
Having thereafter studied modern philosophy, I graduated in philosophy with a thesis on Steiner, Nietzsche and Scaligero, and continued my studies in Germany, where I lived and taught.
Always very close to the Oriental culture and esotericism, I followed at first the lectures of Krishnamurti and other Yogin's teachings, until I met Massimo Scaligero, who introduced me to western esotericism and to Rudolf Steiner.
He himself was a scholar of Giovanni Colazza, a Steiner's disciple.
For eight years - until his death in 1980 - I had the extraordinary privilege of having a weekly private meeting with him.
Author of articles and essays, I have translated books by Rudolf Steiner, Gustav Meyrink and, more recently, by Judith von Halle from German into Italian.
The name "libero pensare" (free thinking) of this website is meant to emphasize my independence from any doctrine, school or outward association, leading back every possible 'belonging' to the “Way of Thinking” of which Massimo Scaligero was unequalled teacher.
