Biography

After the injury of Emanuele Birarelli, as captain, he led Italvolley to the silver medal at the 2015 World Cup which booked their ticket to Rio. The thirty-two-year old from Fucecchio (Florence) moved to San Vincenzo (Livorno) and when he is not playing, enjoys his beach house. With his girlfriend Krizia, he also launched 'Eataround', an app for smartphones related to 'social eating' (or 'dining in the dark') through which it is possible to organise your own dinner at home or attend an event set up by a stranger. This Italian star's goal is to promote the gastronomic treasures of Italy, at home and abroad. If it is time to celebrate in Rio, Italy already knows who to turn to.
