Satellite Voices Worldwide: Valerio Mannucci

January 2, 2012

A round robin interview with our local editors pitching questions to each other from around the globe

  • Text by Satellite Voices

Valerio Mannucci heads up Satellite Voices Rome whilst also publishing and editing Rome's best alternative arts and culture title, NERO together with Luca Lo Pinto.

Kristina Voytovich (Moscow): How is your perfect weekend look like?
Valerio Mannucci: Probably at home doing nothing, trying to get intensely bored. I guess it's a way to avoid the passage of time.

Kemal Tarba (Moscow): What's the best advice you've ever been given?
Valerio Mannucci: A friend told me that her grandmother once said: "If someone tells you how well he finds you looking, it means you're fat. If someone says how sick you look, it means you're at the right weight".

Josh Atkin (Shanghai): What is the most important subject to avoid while in a conversation?
Valerio Mannucci: Chewing gum – you should never offer it to the person you are talking to.

Kate Hazell (Dubai): What do you wish your city had that it doesn’t?  
Valerio Mannucci: Definitely off-licence shops.

Emi Kameoka (Tokyo): Where is the best coffee shop in your city?
Valerio Mannucci: This is probably the counterpart of the previous question. We have no off-licenses and everything closes quite early, but we have Bernasconi, a small and very old coffee shop and bakery close to my home in the center of Rome that is not only the best coffee shop in town, but the best in the world.

Emi Kameoka (Tokyo): What is your best dream you ever had?
Valerio Mannucci: Once I dreamed I had all of my best friends in my pockets.
