Place of Birth: Priverno

m. 1,90

kg. 92

Speciality Double sculls


He is the gentle giant of Italian rowing, champion in and out of his boat. Stroke seat in the double scull, silver medal in London 2012, although in 2015 he failed to get on the world podium which had not happened for four years; he managed to qualify his boat for Rio, ready to defend his Olympic placing. Cheering on the sculler from Privernoì, on the front row, is his daughter Lavinia, his wife Sara and parents Romano and Annunziata, who, when they can, leave the their business "Bar Centrale" to follow the Italian athlete. Tenacious and almost always decisive in the final sprint, the 29-year-old from the Lazio region works tirelessly for charity campaigns and events. A great ambassador for Italy and not just on the water.
