He started climbing when he was 11 during a climbing course. He undertook a lot of training, and the hard work was rewarded with the victory of the Italian Youth Championship and the Lead and Boulder Italian Youth Cup. The victory of the Boulder Absolute Italian Championship 2010 represents one of his most significant results and also a turning point, because he immediately chose to abandon the comp scene.
Driven by the desire to face new challenges, his interest has shifted towards the different facets of climbing, going from traditional climbing to long routes, from climbing to expeditions.
