Gino is a freelance blogger and writer. Born in 1982, Naples he moved over with his family at the tender age of 4. After completing his studies at Sheffield Hallam University in International Business and languages he has worked for marketing agencies across the UK and Europe.
He's lived in both the north and south of Italy in these periods, and one day hopes to move to Milan to regularly watch his beloved football team, ACMilan play at the Meazza. He writes for a number of websites mainly about sport, food and culture. When he's not writing he's either on his bike, playing football or on his guitar.
