I had been practicing karate for 15 years, participating in several events all around Italy performing at a competitive level.
I’ve coached this martial art for years, training both children and adults.

Active member of an Italian caving club.
I’ve been its secretary for 4 years. The activity of the association ranges between explorative and educational purposes.
