Man of Roma is a 60-year-old Italian from Rome who prefers anonymity in order to be able to talk freely about all.
This blog is bilingual, English and Italian, and will try to merge reflection with anecdotes and elements of autobiography.
- Because as a living specimen of a Roman identity Man of Roma must somehow talk about himself.
- Because Man of Roma is unassuming, his model being Michel de Montaigne.
- Because having lost all faiths Man of Roma sees here an opportunity to cling onto the only religion left to him: narcissism (Woody Allen’s jest, not MoR’s.)
Now, more seriously, further info can be found in the first post which is like an introduction to this blog by providing an idea of its general inspiration.
- Professional teacher in Italian high school for 16 years (Ancient History & Italian literature.)
- IT systems and networking Engineer in the last 14 years, working with networking planning, implementing and training projects, in Italy and abroad.
- Composer of soundtrack electronic music, playing piano and guitar and liking any kind of music: classical, contemporary, jazz, world (especially Indian and Arabic,) rock, pop etc.
- Freelance journalist with articles published in major Italian newspapers and magazines.
Man of Roma will gradually (and cautiously) retire in the course of the next 10 years.
He see this blog as an opportunity to brush up humanities back, to teach something to others (and especially to himself,) to rewire his own synapses and mix up all together (including science & technology) into a hopefully consistent combination.
The little I know and the little I am I almost entirely owe to Magister, my mentor. This blog is dedicated to him.
