"This is not a challenge to state human superiority, since it is well known that the mountain and mother nature always win, but to state your own potentialities and capacities, is to challenge the border of your own limits."

I was born on the 26th of February 1960 and since I was a child I followed my parents and friends through the trails in the mountains near my house. When I was 12 I tried my first climbing through  the  via Diretta on the East side of the Paganella mountain and I falled down  20 meters. While I was  hanging by a rope above the Adige Valley, I thought  about the commitment to face the mountain only after a good  training, preparation  and self-confidence. Years passed and the interest for alpinism grew up until I was 19 and I decided to climb in winter the Gruppo di Brenta. In 1981 I was an aspiring alpine guide and in 1985 I finally became Alpine Guide. My relationship with the mountain goes on, in professional, sport and human terms. This lifestyle lead me to climb the Gruppo di Brenta, toundertake winter climbs with the touring skiis and long climbs to the top of the highest mountains in the world, where the air is rarefied.

This is not a challenge to state human superiority, since it is well known that the mountain and mother nature always win, but to state your own potentialities and capacities, is to challenge  the border of your own limits.
