Born in Milan in 1978, Simone aka Simo Pastu owes his nickname to "pasturare", in Milanese slang "to meet people, to make a mess", coined in the mid-Nineties when he went to dance with his friends. He started writing about nightlife, bars and restaurants for ZERO Magazine (www.zero.eu) in October 2000, while studying Journalism. He has also worked for the English guides Time Out and A Hedonist Guide To. He has worked various jobs within the field as a waiter or receptionist in many Milanese restaurants and hotels. In addition to writing, he enjoys being a bartender and organizing events dedicated to mixology, such as the Milano Bar Marathon. Projects for the future: keep running.
