This word has been a constant in my life.
I grew up a few kilometers from Venezia, in a city called Padova, where Galileo conducted his studies regarding the heliocentric theory.
After pursuing my Doctoral degree, I started to work as a Pharmacist in the family business. I soon realized that it was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, I had the deep belief that prevention had a major role on health over curing any disease. I do not think there is anything better than exercise and nutrition in order to achieve a long and satisfying life.
A few years later, I graduated again from the University of Milan with an MSc in Human Nutrition, at the same time I joined the excellent Manuel Salvadori and Dr. Valentina Andrulli Bucchieri in vivereinforma team, an Italian company that has the goal of spreading an evidence based approach for the optimization of human life. During those years I found in Manuel a great friend and teacher and lighted my attention on several topics as human microbiome, we still talk every week sharing our point of view on the latest publications or comparing our protocols.
Beside that, I was mentored by Dr. Laurent Bannock, one of the most renowned sports nutritionists in the planet, he taught me his approach and especially the importance of translating data from papers to my everyday work as a performance nutrition consultant.
Starting from 2015 I visited several times the US, especially the Southern California and the New York area.
In 2018 I managed to make my dream come true moving to Los Angeles, California.
Here, I wake up every morning with the blessing of being chosen by some of the toughest athletes in the world as their guide for nutrition, supplementation and recovery.
It does not matter if the goal is qualifying for the Olympics, win a UFC debut or being drafted, everyday is busy and devoted to the pursuit of excellence.
I consider the Mediterranean lifestyle a key factor to longevity and I love being its ambassador in the United States, teaching my athletes and my clients how to cook dishes like homemade pesto!
I like to live according to the principles I teach, for this reason I train consistently in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the Cobrinha Academy ( I am a blue belt) and I follow a strength and conditioning protocol that brings me twice a week to the weight room, once to the swimming pool and once to the track.
