Alcune parole su di me

I was born and raised at the foot of Etna and thanks to my father's teachings I followed the path that led me to the realization of a dream, that is to become a Volcanological Guide and Mountain Bike Guide specialized in accompaniment on active volcanoes. In addition to having a great passion for these activities, I believe it is a daily mission to be able to convey and tell the history and events of the area in which I have lived so far. I work mainly on the Etna volcano and the volcanoes of the Aeolian Islands but I have an excellent knowledge of all the mountain groups in Sicily where I often organize trekking and MTB tours.
If my guests include children, I organize experiences tailored to their needs. Furthermore, upon request, I create educational courses.


Fascinated by the steep slopes of volcanic ash of Etna, my journey began as a child with Downhill until evolving a few years later with off-piste skiing (Telemark in particular) and rock climbing, where I had the pleasure of trying my hand at for several years opening and bolting new itineraries around Sicily. The passion for photography gave me the opportunity to capture and freeze unique moments during the eruptive activities of the Sicilian volcanoes and this stimulated me in particular by facing with motivation the selections for Volcanological Guide, a title I obtained in 2016. I subsequently followed training at the Italian Cycling Federation to obtain the title as TI2 Master Instructor.
