I met Simon in the “Conversational Experiments”, organised by Flemming Funch, an online group of interesting people trying to find better ways of coming together.
Simon came to see me in Paradiso Integrale and we had the unique chance to get to know each other live and in person, instead of “head only” on the computer screen. We passed a few days with interesting conversations, one of which we recorded for you and it is posted here.
I learned that Simon is originally from Sicily and went to Canada when he was 15. This enabled us to converse also in Italian, which gave Alessio, a young Italian man presently staying here at the Paradiso, the chance to enter into the conversation which was enriching for all of us.
We did excursions to ancient Villages in Umbria and the area of Viterbo, places which you don’t necessarily know when you live in South Italy, but which are really beautiful and worthwhile to visit.
