Born and bred in Valsesia (North West Italy), I studied German and History of Art at Reading University (UK), then an MA in Florentine Renaissance Art in London and various jobs in art galleries… Why am I now devoting my time to mountaineers and their perilous routes?
Mountains make you feel alive and I want some of their magic for myself and those around me. No re-inventing of the wheel here. This is simply a way of conveying my passion.
So I do still love the arts and would find it hard to imagine my life without paintings and exhibitions, art cities and eccentric egos, but what makes me tick as a person are the subdued colours of a sunset and a bright blue mountain sky. The alchemy of the mountains is ours to enjoy. Not with haste, but with heart and soul.
