WHO WE ARE
David De Leo
As Lorenzo, I chose to stay in Montemitro and it’s here that I want to live everyday more and more. I like travelling a lot and making new experiences, discovering new places, traditions and cultures. I’m not really a talkative person, but if there’s a discussion going on, it’s unlikely for me to back out!
Hi, I’m Gianluca. Don’t be deceived by the picture… The sport I like the most is the one you do when you sit at the table with fork and knife in your hands. Three years ago I left for Milan to finish my studies on tourism and now I’m living here, because it’s here that I’ve found a job. “You’re always here, aren’t you?”, my village people say to me. I sure am! As soon as I’m free I run off to my village. In my spare time I love wandering around, enjoying new places, meeting nice people and speaking other languages… I like to read, write, draw, play, imitate… and even more! When there’s something to do, I never back out. Yeah, I’m like parsley: I sprout everywhere!
All in all, the thing I love the most is organizing activities for my village: Montemitro is everything for me, even though I don’t live there anymore.
I grew up in Montemitro, but I’ve been living in Croatia for a few years, in Zagreb, where I graduated in the Faculty of Literature and Philosophy, in Croatian studies and Italian studies. I’m really enthusiastic about our language, I’m a wannabe teacher, loving people (with restrictions) and cats (with no restrictions) and I’m an incurable volunteer.
Hello to everyone! My name is Simone, I’m from Montemitro and I’ve just started Biotechnology in Perugia. Since I was a child, I’ve always had an innate passion for percussion: to me, everything became a drum and, for five years, I’ve attended drum lessons. A few years ago, I became a member of the KroaTarantata band as the “bufù” player: this is a percussion instrument and everyone outside Molise gets curious about it, because of its odd shape and because it is mostly unknown. Belonging to this band allows me to grow, beyond my passion for music, my passion for Montemitro, its history and its traditions: a love that has always belonged to me and that will never end.
I am Stefano! I play the double bass and the electric bass. I prefer playing the electric one because it’s louder. I’m currently studying Chemistry in Vienna and when I have some spare time I also play other instruments like the guitar, the electric guitar, the piano and sometimes I sing as well. I really like playing music and if I could, I would play music all day long (and all night long, if there’s enough wine).
Hey! I’m Marco. I’m studying music in Vienna, but as soon as possible, I come back to my village: for the “Festa della Cappella”, during the summer, for the olive harvest season, for Christmas and Easter. When I come back, there is always a party going on and if there isn’t, we party anyways. Montemitro means a lot to me: my family, my friends, long feasts, eat well and a lot, sleep little and, when necessary, also working under the olive trees! 😉
I’m in love with Montemitro, a tiny village that has a lot to give.
I studied psychology and now I’m currently working with children in schools.
I’m curious about everything that happens around me…cultures, tradition,
places,people and food!
I really like photography, seeing and learning new things, but most of all, I like our language and our village, which, as you will see and listen, has always something to tell!
