is an Italian sportswriter who started to love basketball mainly thanks
to the defensive intensity and fast breaks of late 1990s Virtus Roma
team. In his childhood, he practiced various sports including tennis
and football but his first and long-lasting passion remains basketball.
He graduated in International Relations in Rome and gained a Master in
European Studies at the Free University of Brussels in 2008.
He starts to have the first tarnished memories of basketball the same
year (1992) of Partizan’s Euroleague triumph with young and unknown
players led by an even more unknown coach and he still sometimes
wonders if all that was real.
