Domenico Nordio
My universe
My pole star
My blue sky
I love pampering my childs...
...and when I'm upset, I get sad
My parents are always next to me
I can't deny my origins
I believe in God
I trust very few people
Skiing is my passion
I'm a fan of Padova's Soccer Team
I'm the snowmen world champion
I started running to heal from the terrible Covid effects...
...and now I participate in marathons...
...with friends
Walking relaxes me
I sleep when I can
I've lost a lot of weight, by choice and by necessity
Sometimes I feel older than I am
I live in Asiago, my earthly paradise
I get lost in the frozen woods
I enjoy eating at mountain huts...
...and I love cheese
I'm not vegetarian
My free Saturdays are dedicated to picnics... Sundays to trips out of town
When I'm on the beach, I turn into a sloth
I don't shy away from questions
I don't avoid selfies
I was young once
I smile...
...more often than not
Discussions engage me
I always know what to say
When I'm doubtful, I look up to the sky
I jealously guard my intimacy
Flying scares me
Riding my motorcycle makes me feel good
I travel a lot
I always come back home
I'm writing a book I won't publish
I study just enough
The stage is my drug
When I play, I'm just myself
I have never worn tailcoats
The audience affection fills me with energy
My students fear me...
...and, at the same time, love me
I like to play...
...but living excites me
il libro nero di uno strimpellatore
