What is my idea of perfect happiness? Happiness is a feeling, a state of mind created and developed based on past, present and future experiences and experiences. I like to make HAPPY people feel! A smell, a taste, a panorama, an atmosphere … little things that can give great happiness. And above all human warmth!
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? I disapproved of my controversy and the feeling of never knowing what I was doing. They are negative sides, but sometimes with a good backside in the positive!
What is my greatest extravagance? My curiosity! My desire to never stop me brings me to discover the unexplored. My love for everything I live and create is my greatest “extravagance”. I never stop!
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? Dishonesty. Unfortunately, the tourism industry is full of people who take the opportunity without thinking about the consequences. Unfair competition and stealing ideas to make bulk projects. People who do not like what they do but only see “business”
If I could, what would I change about myself? Maybe my impatience! My want to see everything perfect and done right away 🙂 to perfection and detail.
Where would I most like to live? I love living in Rome. It’s where I want to be, exactly where I am. Maybe another city that mirrors me is Paris 🙂 Even Tuscany … maybe a nice estate to host and create new experiences.
What is my most marked characteristic? Empathy, affability, education and respect.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? I love the small, family-run, old-town trattorias where they make you feel part of the family. I love a small restaurant called Laganà via Orso. My drink bar (although I’m half astemia) is a small club called Living Room 42 at Stone Square. A unique place in a great location!
Who are my favorite writers? I love Jeffery Deaver’s thriller books
Who is my hero or heroine in fiction? I love all Marvel superhero J Wonder woman and Batman are my favorites!
Which movie would i recommend to see once in a lifetime? Definitely “ Il Paziente Inglese”
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? My mother and my friend Alexandra La Capria. Alexandra has always believed in me, has spurred me, helped me and sustained me in difficult times. My dad is also a key pillar, I know he is there, ready to listen to me, encourage me, give me advice, and sometimes even small and big help J!
Which people in my profession would i love to meet in 2017? Real and concrete people. Ready to collaborate with Rome x Love.
Where can you see me or my work in 2017? There are always customers traveling to Italy with Rome x Love!

What is Your Story?
One Day Tour with Peter de Kuster in the greatest bookstores of your favorite city. In Paris, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Berlin, London and Amsterdam we offer this unique What is your Story? experience. To (re) write your story about yourself and your work. In the process transforming your capacity to successfully have the creative life and work you love.
In this journey, Peter de Kuster, founder of The Heroine’s Journey explores with you the way we tell stories about ourselves to ourselves — and, most important, the way we can change those stories to transform our creative business and life.
“Your story is your art, your art is your story,” says Peter. As human beings, we continually tell ourselves stories — of success or failure; of power or victimhood; stories that endure for an hour, or a day, or an entire lifetime. We have stories about our creative challenges, our art, our clients, our money, our self promotion, our time, our families and relationships, our health; about what we want and what we’re capable of achieving. Yet, while our stories profoundly affect how others see us and we see ourselves, too few of us even recognize that we’re telling stories, or what they are, or that we can change them — and, in turn, transform our very destinies.
Telling ourselves stories provides structure and direction as we navigate life’s challenges and opportunities, and helps us interpret our goals and skills. Stories make sense of chaos; they organize our many divergent experiences into a coherent thread; they shape our entire reality. And far too many of our stories, says Peter, are dysfunctional, in need of serious editing. First, he asks you to answer the question, “In which areas of my creative life and business is it clear that I cannot achieve my goals with the story I’ve got?” He then shows you how to create new, reality-based stories that inspire you to action, and take you where you want to go both in your work and personal life.
Our capacity to tell stories is one of our profoundest gifts. Peter’s approach to creating deeply engaging stories will give you the tools to wield the power of storytelling and forever change your creative business and life.
Become a great Storyteller
That’s why I set up What is your Story? service in the great cities of the world and their great bookstores. A new way to use the power of your story. To guide you to life-changing, eye-opening but often elusive works of literature, both past and present, the books of fiction that truly have the power to enchant, enrich and inspire.
In two days with Peter de Kuster you’ll explore your relationship with books so far and your unique story identity will be sketched. You will be guided to books that can put their finger on what you want to rewrite in your story, the feelings that you may often have had but perhaps never understood so clearly before; books that open new perspectives and re-enchant the world for you.
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire in advance of your session and you’ll be given an instant story advice and books to read to take away. Your full story advice and books to read list will follow within a couple of days.
