Bio


"Everyone wants to live on top of a mountain, but happiness and growth are on the way to climbing it"

Confucio


My name is Giovanni, I live in Lanzada, a small mountain town located in Valmalenco. I started doing sports at the age of 5 thanks to my dad who always took me to the mountains and I immediately loved it. Before I started doing ski mountaineering competitions I did mountain running and mountain biking competitions, and only 6 years ago I started practicing ski mountaineering and I fell in love with it. And after many sacrifices and hard training in 2019 I managed to win 2 World titles. We hope that the next few years will give me as much satisfaction as in the past years, but I know that I will have to go all out and continue on this path !!
