As a boy he wanted to be a journalist. Then he discovered sailing (first racing boats, then as an instructor and finally cruising), and it was love at first sight. So he decided to unite his two passions. For years he has been working for Il Giornale della Vela and, more recently, for the magazine Barche a Motore as well. When he’s not on a boat, he plays the drums, cooks and goes hunting for mushrooms.
