Richard Mckenna

Richard is a writer and translator who has been living in Rome for the last 30 years. He's not much of a planner but one of the things he most enjoys is wandering aimlessly around places he knows nothing about while trying to gradually understand something about them.

Most of his writing deals with the overlap of politics, sociology and pop culture so he loves immersing himself in local realities of food, music, cinema, comics or whatever else happens to present itself.
