Alessandro Calcaterra is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief.

Alessandro Calcaterra craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Alessandro Calcaterra to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities.

Alessandro Calcaterra lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink.

His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Alessandro has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective.
