Why do you love to skate? Skating just makes me feel free and alive, when I am skating the world is paused, I can escape from everything, and enter a new dimension.
What keeps you pushing forward in skating? I always want to learn new things and progress, there is always something new to try or to improve. This gives me a lot of motivation.
What was your greatest success? Until this moment I won many Italian titles, some WSSA competitions and I became European Champion in Battle in 2018… But my most important victories are not written on any medal.
What is your favorite place to skate? I enjoy skating almost everywhere, for my training I love the rink here in Padova, my favorite place in competition has been in Paris, I also love to skate on the ice, going to skateparks and visit places by skates with some friends!
What is your favorite trick? Chicken!
What advice would you like to give? Skate for yourself, remember that there is always the possibility to learn something from any situation. Learn to appreciate every moment on skates.
Any hobbies outside of skating? I love animals, watching films, visit places (especially in nature), I also like to craft things.
What is your favorite moment in skating? When I finally get one of my goals!
Tell us about your personal philosophy, phrase, ethic, and/or value as a skater! Yes, you can write a book…?This sport has taught me a lot. I'm talking about learning to be able to work hard, transform problems into challenges, learn from mistakes, making targets, and enjoying all the good and bad moments. I like to apply this mood to all the situations of my life.
