“I was born and raised in the mountains and I have attended it in all its aspects since I was a child, when I went with my father every Sunday to do via ferratas. I remember a very special Sunday, climbing up the Civetta, from the via ferrata we were traveling on, I saw people climbing the wall climbing. I was struck by what I had seen and from that day on I decided that I too wanted to climb. Later I spent endless days climbing up and down the stone wall that runs along the hairpin bends of the road to my town, before touching the rock.
My passion for skiing was also born at a very young age, my first steps on skis date back to when I was three. Then, slowly, going to the mountains in all seasons, I thought that my passion could become a job. I have been a mountain guide since 2005 and a ski instructor since 2000”.
