I was born in Trento on the 6th of May 1963.
I graduated as a congegnatore meccanico from the Professional Institute of Villazano and in 1981 began working in the family shop along with my Father and Grandfather. Here I specialized in making spray guns and between-row herbicide booms.
From my father, Renzo I inherited a passion for work, motorcycles and
photography. With regards to my work I’ve received certifications in
welding (UNI EN287-1) and CAD design software (Basic and Advanced).
I spend my free time divided between motorcycles and photography (basato sul italiano). In my free time I love taking pictures and gowing for rides on my motorcycle.
Speaking of motorcycles. From 1992 to 2008 I served on the governing council for the Moto Club of Trento. Over the years I’ve enjoyed competing in various Trail and Motoraid competitions. In 1994 and 1996 I placed second in ”Motoraid” at the Regional Championship TnAA. Then in 1997 I took first place in the ”Castle Rally of Trentino” and later that same year took first place in Motoraid at the Regional Championship TnAA.
In 1996 with the purchase of my Honda VFR750 RC36II I joined the VFR Club of Italy where after 2 years I received the position of Regional Representitive for Trentino Alto-Adige
In 2004 I purchased the brand new VFR VTEC 800 RC46II. In 2018 I passed at Honda VFR Crossrunner X.
