How did you get started in skiing?

The best advice that you have been given?
It was there, on my world cup debut in Kitzbuhel, during the downhill training before the race, my coach said to me: “Go safe down here.” 😉

I would be working in the family company, called TOSTI, a winery located in Canelli (Piedmont) the famous wine region in the North-west part of Italy.

Chill out music

Favourite book?
I don’t have a favourite book, generally, I’m reading books for my university career but they are not pleasant books

What does a typical day of training look like?
6.30am wake up, from 8 to 12 up on the snow training on skis, lunch, a little rest, physics training, video analysis from the morning training, dinner, sleep and then I start again

Kissing the necklace that my grandmother gave to me

The 6 medals at Italian National Championships (1 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze)

Being an example for other younger skiers

What do you enjoy most about skiing?
Going full speed on a downhill course really makes you feel alive and then I love to spend most of the time out in awesome scenery

Advise that you have for someone starting out ski racing?
Train always as hard as you can.

What is the most crucial part of your training?
Every part of the training is crucial in ski racing because every single hundredth count and it can divide you from winning a race to being out of the podium.

Anyone you would like to thank?

My mother that support me from when I started skiing and my brother  Giulio that has always some good advice.
