Born and grown up at the foot of the Matterhorn, in a family where the guide’s job has been passed down from father to son for several generations, it was as if I had no choice but to become a climber too. Actually, everything happened almost by chance and step by step. I was only a teenager when the mountain started to fill me with emotions.
At the age of fifteen I was a promising skier. Then a bad accident, during a competition, hopelessly brought to an end what would have probably been my future as a professional.
I survived and after spending a year in rehabilitation, my father decided to give me a gift and took me on the Matterhorn. So at the break of an icy morning in October, I was ready for my first climb on the ‘Gran Becca’.
At that time I couldn’t imagine that thanks to the mountains, I would  live some of the most exciting experiences of my life.
That day I just tried to walk without tripping over, being careful not to slow down my father’s pace. That day on the Matterhorn I had unconsciously decided my future.

Lectures are an occasion to give something back and say thank you to all the mountain lovers who follow me. They are a good opportunity for telling stories about both mountain and mountaineering research, where you do not only have to perform but also to pursue your own excitement, limitations and adventure. Fully convinced that where there’s a will often there’s a way, I want to tell you about my climbs and let you share my mountaineering life with the great aim of leading you to believe in your dreams.
The dates of my next lectures are on the agenda.


Sports and disciplines, where adventure means danger, are able to instill a great adrenaline charge and at the same time help you gain all the strength and concentration necessary to be at your best and overcome your own limits.
Thanks to a captivating communication, my experience as an alpinist and all the challenges of living in the mountains, will be projected in everyday life and used to put forward meaningful messages.
Focusing on all the objectives, considering risks, the decision-making ability under great emotional stress, understanding the significance of a rope party and consequently of the team spirit, making sense of failure, thinking of enthusiasm and passion as an added value to live a better life, are just some of the topics to be discussed during my motivational conferences.
