I was born in Biella on 28 August 1973. After school graduation, mountaineering and climbing became the great motivation of my days, so the dream of become Mountain Guide was the logical consequence: being able to live my passion full time! Today I live in Gaglianico not far from my hometown, I am a professional, full qualified Mountain Guide, I work all-over the Alps far both in winter and in summer. I love skiing as climbing. To describe my way of understanding the mountain I like to quote a phrase from Reinhard Karl that is also the title of his autobiografic book:”time to live, time to breathe”. I like to fully enjoy every past moment up there but even more so to stop and taste its essence together with whom with me he shares these moments. The vertical gesture in all its forms was my first love. I climbed cliffs all over Europe, attracted by the most beautiful rock, then I approached mountaineering by climbing the great classic routes on the most beautiful walls of the Alps, from west to east. Even the cold fascinates me a lot: waterfalls, goulottes and the north face walls, climbing some classic routes in winter too. I collaborated with several of my companions during my activity at the opening of fifteen new itineraries mainly on rock. I was member of some expeditions in Yosemite, Madagascar and Patagonia. I am coauthor for the manual of mountaineering techniques, entitled “mountain safety” publisher by “Versante sud”.
