Stefano Giancola


A bit disenchanted observer of the world, a bit reporter, Stefano Giancola made traveling a life condition, a mental extension - even before a physical one - of his own existence. A physicist, but also author of novels, poems collections and journalistic articles, he directly witnessed humanitarian emergencies (the Eritrea - Ethiopia war consequences, the tragedy of Darfur) and geopolitical issues (the crisis of Sudan and the one of Zimbabwe, the difficult Mozambique reinassance) following international cooperation organizations and UN agencies. Among countless travels in various continents, however, it is Africa that conquers him. Running all over across it, he records tremors, waits and never foregone conclusions. A reflex and a ballpoint pen always accompany him around the world. He is fond of trekking and sailing.

Visited countries: Europe (various), Africa (Algeria, Botswana, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Libya, Tunisia, Marocco,  Mali, Chad, Sudan, Egypt, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa,  Swaziland, Namibia, Madagascar, Zambia, Zimbabwe), Asia (Armenia, Sikkim, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Jordan, Syria, Israel, Iran, Laos, Turkey, Yemen, Pakistan, China, Nepal, India, Thailand, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Vietnam), America (Argentina, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Cuba, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, USA), Oceania (Australia).
