Although I was born and raised in Rome and finally moved to Barcelona, I've always felt I'm an island boy. My parents were born in Sardinia so I spent there all my summers till I was old enough to start chasing waves with my friends. Many summer migrations to other islands started at that point, mostly to Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Bali. For me an island is geographically and metaphorically a safe place, surrounded by water and kissed by the winds. There I feel time is not a threat but a friend you have to take care of.
