I was born in Brescia on september 2 1966 and I live in Monticelli Brusati, a little town in Franciacorta.
I work as restaurateur, and because of my passion for the mountains, in the last 3 years I’ve taken care of some mountain shelters.
I took part at 5 editions of the Iditarod Trail Invitational, walking nearly 6.000 km on Alaska’s ice:
-2004: 560 km, third in “runners” category
-2005: 1.800 km south route, I retired for a leg problem after 900 km
-2006: 1.800 km north route, second in “runners” category, 30 days of walk
-2007: 560 km, third in “runners” category
-2009: 1.800 km south route, second in “runners” category, 30 days of walk
Me, Roberto Ghidoni, Tim Hewit e Tom Jarding are the only 4 people in the world who finished the long race on both of the routes.
I’m a Tour leader, I led groups in India, Africa, South America and long trekking sessions on Himalaya mountains in Nepal.
I also plan public meetings to tell people about my experiences, and I work with some secondary school to teach students the values of sport.
