I am a Mid Mountain Guide registered with the Abruzzo Order of Mountain Guides, an accredited operator with the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise for environmental education, a Nordic Walking instructor and e-bike guide.
I was born and live on the Molise side of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, one of the oldest protected areas in Italy, a treasure chest rich in biodiversity that includes all the great fauna of the Apennines and that preserves and protects two important species, the Marsican Brown Bear and the Apennine Chamois.
This is where I developed a passion for the mountains, which later turned into a profession, and now sees me involved in a series of hiking proposals, mainly in Abruzzo and Molise:hiking, wildlife watching, themed trekking, environmental education programs for schools of all levels, Nordic Walking courses and tours, e-bike cycling tours.
I am part of the La Betulla staff (www.labetullaonline.com), I collaborate with the Trekking Italy Association for the promotion of Cammini sui Tratturi (hiking along shepherd tracks) through Abruzzo, Molise and Puglia and with which I recently created a hiking map of the Sentiero Trekking Italia - Upper Molise, I also work with Alta Quota, a mountain apparel and equipment store (www.altaquotashop.com). I also manage small high altitude accommodation facilities (stazzi) and hiking activities with Arctos Guide Asd.
