Indiana Jones Napoletano _ Frank

Indiana Jones Napoletano _ Frank

A few years ago I had the “brilliant idea” of leaving my job as a permanent employee, I left that office with less “material certainties” and more awareness and ambition to be living a life in which I recognize myself. One ambition pushed me the most in this direction: telling stories. Modern video maker and explorer: I share stories of unknown places, traditions, and the authentic characters of my land. All this satisfies my curiosity and fills me with gratitude. In short: it’s not an effort but a mission!

Born in England, grew up in Canada, I have lived in Italy for more than half of my life now, in Liguria and Tuscany. In September of 2015 I set off to walk from one to the other.

My plan for 2021 is to join the “Road to Rome” for the “Road from Rome” portion: heading south from Rome towards the tip of the heel of Italy!
