“Born in 1981 in Addis Ababa in a mixed Italian-Ethiopian family, he lived with his family in a liberal bubble in the midst of the communist occupation of Ethiopia by the military junta DERG.
He had toys (rare commodity), watched american movies and drank soft drinks up to indigestion. When the Marxist regime was overrun and civil war broke loose he was forced to move to Italy.

Finally someone had the kindness to teach him Italian and explain that toys, soft drinks and american movies weren’t highly regarded in Moscow. So everything that he owned during his childhood was the result of smuggling.
Years later he awoke troubled after having a nightmare, he was wandering the streets of a ghost town, where billboards of american soft drinks prevailed over a few other. Amazed by that vision he knew he was destined to take back the advertising spaces of his brain or at least to sell them for a reasonable price.”
