Ciao! Sono Paolo e vivo a Grotte, un piccolo paese in Provincia di Agrigento, distante 3 km dalla "Regalpetra" di Leonardo Sciascia (Racalmuto) e poco più di 15 da Agrigento e dal Mare. Ho studiato legge a Siena (Toscana). Scrivo per uno storico giornale locale "malgradotuttoweb"(
Faccio sport, leggo e guardo film, e di tanto in tanto provo anche a suonare la chitarra...con pessimi risultati.
Ho studiato a Siena e vissuto lì per quasi 10 anni. Quando ho tempo e soldi, ne approfitto per tornarci. Mi incanta la Spagna dove ho trascorso un anno della mia vita.. Cosa dire di più? venite a trovarci e vi farò conoscere un pezzo della mia splendida terra, con i suoi contrasti accesi e i suoi mille volti, storie e personaggi in cerca di autore.
