Omar Conzato is an Italian/Australian writer currently based in Italy. An avid traveller who has lived on three different continents. - "As a history student I try to know as much about the culture and past of any place I visit. As a young person I try to also know the cheapest places to eat and drink well. My hobbies include: relaxing, eating (good food, I am Italian), drinking (I am Australian), music, cinema/tv and architecture. I would say I am equal parts a city and country person as I’ve lived both the big city and provincial life and still can’t tell which one I prefer."
