The twenty-five-year old Venetian, is the 'Super Pippo' of the national Volleyball team, a sport that he took up following advice from his father, a former player. Before that, he only had some limited experience in skiing and rugby, where, in his position as a prop, he used to let off steam after school (he obtained a high school diploma in accounting). In Trento, where he had played from a young age, he also met Ana, a Spanish girl from Alicante, in Italy thanks to the Erasmus project. Since 2012, he has been part of the national team where he has won, among other things, a European and World Cup silver, a European bronze and achieved two third places in the World League. He loves to eat his Florentine steak rare and, when he finally stops playing, he dreams of running his own B&B. In Rio, however, there is now way he is going to relax.
