"At 18 years old I became the youngest mountain guide in Europe. My passion for the mountains drove me to experience extreme downhill descents such as the Italian descent of the North Face of the Otler. In 2004 I climbed my first 8000m mountain in the Himalayas, Mount Everest. Out of the 14 highest mountains in the World I’ve already climbed 10 without using oxygen. 
A low moment during my career was the K2 climb in 2008, many climbing companions lost their lives and I lost all my toes due to frost bite. 
Right now I’m organizing my next exhibition which will be the Kanchenjunga mountain at 8516 meters, in Nepal."
