Bio


I was born and raised in Pinasca, a small town in Val Chisone. After practicing various sports such as football, swimming and alpine skiing, I approached athletics in 2012. I studied agriculture and have always been a lover of nature and the mountain, I love being outdoors and for this reason I am now lucky enough to work on the ski facilities of Prali, where I currently live 6 months a year, and where I can train running on its beautiful mountains.
