What does it mean to write a novel?
It’s a growth process. I would have never imagined that by writing these pages I would dig so deeply into myself.
It’s who I am, who I want to be. It’s all the events that have marked my life in the past, or characterize its present. Studies, travels, passions, dreams… Whether I wanted to or not, everything seemed to flow through the ink of my pages, giving birth to a living creature. I felt as if the characters could almost come to life and give voice to their thoughts!
Who is the Traveler?
This question comes up often and I’ve asked myself
the same thing.
It’s not about physically moving in space, but about exploring.
It’s not about getting on a plane, but about closing our eyes to dive into infinity.
Mystery, knowledge and opportunities are around all us, at any given moment.
The point is: do we have the courage to grab them when they’re presented to us?
By reading these pages, the reader will be put to the test: where does reality actually end and where does fiction begin? What’s the line between the possible and the fantastic?
My wish is that your intuition will push that line much further than previously expected in your “everyday experience”…!

The latter, an archaeologist and martial arts expert, is in possession of a gift that transcends common reality. He will be the keystone on the intricate path that will lead our protagonists from the United States to Japan, where an archaeological excavation has brought to light the skeletons of two warriors, who lived five hundred years ago.
Clues, encounters and coincidences, drawn more by fate than by chance, will catapult Jin and Cora right into the arduous Himalayan mountains, where an adventure beyond any imagination awaits them: hidden for centuries behind the harmless flapping wings of a thousand butterflies, a hurricane of events and discoveries is ready to unleash on the entire planet.
About the author
I was born in Asciano, Italy, in 1989. Asciano is a small village in the middle of the Tuscan hills, where I still live, working as a martial arts teacher and writer.
There, I realized I could no longer live without following my passions!
So I decided to dive deeper into my actual areas of interest: traditional martial arts from Japan and China; Metaphysics; Qi Gong; Meditation and Ancient Knowledge.
In 2015, I founded Exploring Earth, a non-profit association that allows university students to complete internships in developing countries.
In 2019 I created “Wǔ Dào Duì”, the “Team of Martial Path”, with a single goal in mind across my teachings: to help others know themselves better and develop the maximum potential of their body, mind and will.
Correct breathing techniques, meditation and ancient martial arts movements are the tools I chose to achieve this goal, and the results with my students have been astounding.
My personal style was born, and I decided to call it “the HASHI method”. In Japanese the word means “bridge”, which symbolizes our ability to regain possession of our lives, through all the natural elements available to us. My idea is to create a bridge between the body and the mind, between modern physics and ancient metaphysical knowledge, between the Eastern and the Wester culture, between ourselves and others.
All of these incredible experiences eventually became a river of paper and ink, where fantasy played a rather marginal role. The adventure was there, before my eyes, ready to be transformed into the thriller “The Traveler”, the Aquarius Series’ first novel!
