In 1985 Maurizio set out to cross the Atlantic Ocean to reach the United States on a 98 years old Lateen sailboat.

In 2004 he founded Neti Neti Media producing several DVDs mostly on Nisargadatta Maharaj (the author of the book "I Am That") and in 2009 he started, with his companion Zaya, the groundbreaking conference Science And Nonduality.
Let's meet beyond the I, beyond ideas, beyond our perceived truth. In that space beyond agreement and disagreement, In that space where there is " .....". - M. Benazzo
