About me

Location Piacenza, PC, Italy
Introduction I run this blog out of passion and admiration for the british armed forces. I'm Italian, from Piacenza. But years and years ago, the Supermarine Spitfire enchanted me, as it did with so many others. It was the start of a love: not just for the Spit, but for the Mossie, the Lancaster, for HMS Warspite and for the Desert Rats. From then onwards, military history has been my passion and the UK has been for me a second homeland. And through its own most glorious part, its Armed Forces, i look at the UK, letting my passion guide me as i expand my knowledge of the battles, the people, the weapons and the tactics. I'm a journalist by trade. I studied journalism in the University of Parma after my earlier objective, the pursuit of a career in the armed forces, was frustrated by my exceedingly bad eyesight. Journalism gives me a way to stay close to what i wanted as my real life choice. Since 2014 i've been responsible for the UK chapter of the World Defence Almanac by Monch Publishing, and i've been published by a number of other websites and publications. Welcome to my Blog, where i share my passion with whoever's got the patience to take a seat and have a talk with me.
