When you think about your time at TASIS, what immediately comes to mind?
The view from my first room in Belvedere...the music coming from Ferit (Sahenk)'s room, who was my prefect at the time. These are just vivid pictures from freshman year, but the memories are countless: the Laudinella Hotel in St. Moritz, moments with people who would become my best friends for life, and the guidance of teachers like Cynthia Whisenant, Howard Stickley, and Barbara Mott.
What was your favorite spot on campus?
The tower of Casa Fleming and Angelo's in Certenago.
Tell us some of your best-loved memories.
Inscribing our names in the Murutsch taverna beneath the Laudinella Hotel in St. Moritz. Christmas dances at Capo San Martino.
Who were your favorite teachers?
Howard Stickley, Cynthia Whisenant, Barbara Mott, Ann Almgren
Describe your life today. How did your time at TASIS impact your life since graduation?
I have run a renewable energy company in Milan for the last 15 years. A lot of what I have done and achieved is certainly due to people I met at TASIS. Friends from TASIS have popped up in life and often have been instrumental in helping me or even just in making my life more fun, diverse, or complete. In fact, I married Francesca, who I did not really know at TASIS and who is also an alumni. Our children, Claudia ‘18 and Filippo ‘20, both go to TASIS now. We have moved close to the School and—although at times strange after so many years—we feel at home here like in no other place.
