I don’t like to talk about myself, I prefer to let others do that for me. I lived on bread and athletics from the age of 7 to 25, with the Italian national shirt and a few seasons as a professional in cross country and middle-distance.
At 18 years old I realised that running like mad was no longer enough, I also needed to find a focus for my mind. I wanted to tell others about sport. Classical studies, an arts degree followed by a masters in journalism were my academic steps; working for sector magazines, dailies, local tv and publishing. In the meantime I made it to 34 years old and I abandoned the athletic track in favour of the excitement of triathlon. “The sport of the future”, as I call it. One of the very few sports that combine sacrifice, great effort, the delusion of omnipotence and a strong propensity to aesthetic harmony.
Fascinating and disarming, as only paradoxes can be.
