Hello everyone.

Name's Giorgio and I'm a writer and teacher based in Berlin. I write about provinces and big cities, videogames, Modernism and style.

I'm currently working on some surrealist fiction inspired by a certain game that should go unnamed, using write.as as a platform. Will post the whole thing here.
