I was born in Bergamo (Italy) on il 6/10/1978

I moved the first steps in athletics when I was 11. I was directed in running 'cause I thought to be fast and after I tried high-jump, that was my favourite event where I made 1,30. When I began the superior school I leave athletics for study, but when I was 16 I made 1,90 in the school championship I decided to start train again. I started to jump higher when I met my actually coach : Orlando Motta , who was the best referrence for high-jump. I was junior and in the 2nd year I made 2,16, but a days later to compete in European Yunior championship in Lubliana (Slo). In 1999 I made 2,23 (for the progression see CURRICULUM) and I compete in European U'23 championship where I was out of the final with 13th place, in the same year I entered in Fiamme Gialle, an Italian military team who gave me the possibility to be professionist. In 2000 and a part of 2001 I was injuried (pubalgy). In the indoor season of 2002, finally in a good shape, I stabilished the Italian Indoor Record with 2,30 and competed in the European Indoor Championship of Wien. In 2003 I jumped 2,31 winning the Italian championship. In 2004 I planned my wedding with my girfriend Simona on 23 September but I miss the Olimpic games. In 2005 Indoor season the best success, for the moment, of my carrier with 2,30 and 6 place on European Championship...

Now watch what I can do...

See you
