Why come to the mountains with me?


The training course to become a Mountain Guide lasts 5 years for a total of 120 days, of which approximately 40 days of exams and 2 years of internship. Annual updates are also planned to ensure maximum preparation and competence.


Zero risk does not exist, much less in the mountains. My aim is not to eliminate risk but to manage it within acceptable safety margins and to teach my companions how to evaluate and manage it on the excursions they undertake independently.


The Mountain Guide is the only internationally recognized professional figure who has complete preparation and high quality standards in all disciplines practicable in the mountains: climbing, ski mountaineering, mountaineering, canyoning, etc.
A true all-rounder, complete in every way.


If you have read some articles on my blog, you have understood by now: I like to travel the most classic and well-known itineraries but, even more, I like to find little-known itineraries, far from mass traffic, where you can still breathe the scent of Exploratory mountaineering. If you haven’t read any articles, I advise you to do so: you will find some real pearls!



I am not only an Mountain Guide, but I am also graduated in Forestry and Environmental Sciences. For me, the mountains are not just sporting performance but also knowledge and culture of the environment that I love so much. I like to experience the mountains in all its facets: from the most difficult climbs to stopping to admire the fragile beauty of a flower.

Do you also want to experience intense emotions?

Let yourself be guided by the safe and expert hand of an Mountain Guide!

What my classmates say


I got on very well with Giovanni for his professionalism, his confidence and experience but above all for making us feel at ease throughout the entire journey. The fact that you can climb the entire route of a medium difficulty via ferrata in complete safety allows you to enjoy the view first and then the company of the group, without forgetting that you are in a dangerous environment in the mountains and that you must never let your guard down. Finally, great historical-naturalistic preparation fills the remaining part of the day to allow a 360-degree experience.
Thank you Giovanni!

I tackled the Ferrata delle Trincee with Giovanni. I already had experience with other via ferratas, but for the first one on the Trenches I decided to rely on a guide. Never was a more appropriate choice! I had a great time and it was an electrifying experience in total safety. So much so that, a few days later, I contacted him again to repeat…and off to Tridentina!
Thanks Giovanni, and it doesn’t end here. Let’s go to Marmolada as soon as possible!
