About the guide

Mountain guide since 2006, born and grown in Aosta Valley, cradle of mountaineering.

In addition to the mountains at home (Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and Gran Paradiso) I was lucky to be able to make several expeditions to the most beautiful mountains in the world (Antarctica, Alaska, Yosemite, Patagonia, Bolivia, Nepal, Pakistan, etc.).

I like to convey to those who are tied to my rope, the passion that I have for the mountain and my experience.
