I was born in Genoa in 1959, passionate about flight and historic aircraft from the time I was a little boy. I remember exactly the first model airplane I built when I was six years old, a T6 from Airfix, and my first flight, from Genoa to Milan, next to the window on a Caravelle, a gift from my grandfather for my eighth grade exam, with the return by train.
I achieved my boyhood dream, entering as a student pilot the Air Force in 1978 with the course “URBANO third”. Briefly a pilot in the United States, I spent most of my life on duty at Grosseto and I am still in the service, always in love with flight ( that military historic and romantic party) and with my Armed Force. I am grateful and well aware that God is the reason I have been able to make work at the thing that gives me passion: It still makes me happy.
Thanks to my friend Sandro Pagliarin, I have the privilege, the honor and the good fortune to be able to fly the splendid T6-G I-SSEP and to participate, work permitting, on two restoration projects.
I live for work in Rome, where a pilot has more desks than airplanes. I grab all the flights I can to Grosseto, where I have a home, to get my hands dirty in my "office" and enjoy the skies of Maremma in a fantastic P&W 1340.
I am married to Flavia and I have two children, Federica and Enrico.
