My name is Salvatore "Toto" Roccuzzo. I have been a writer most of my life and lived in Milano before returning to my hometown in Sicily fifteen years ago. I am 61. My wife, Cristina Pauly, lives between Milano and here , but spends most of her time in Milano. We already have someone working at home regularly and need one more helping hand in the garden and for small maintenance works.
