Federico Gessi


I'm Federico, a 17-year-old exchange student from Rome, currently living in Iowa, United States. I speak English, Spanish and Italian, looking forward to learn Arabic.

I'm interested in politics and world issues, I support personal liberties and self-determination rights. I'm a die hard for Ancient Greece, Andy Warhol, soccer, cooking, Lorenzo Jovanotti, the 20th century, old-fashioned Marvel comics, Piers Morgan and Haagen-Dazs pralines and cream.

Modern art, Swedish design, dancing on the beach and kayaking with my wing girl in an early morning sea are that kind of things that make my soul in peace.

My life-long dreams are skydiving in Dubai, being born in 1950, traveling to Tibet and joining a photography course. I believe that the Maroon 5 are the best music band of the 2000s.
