Born in Parma in 1985 Michele discovers climbing at the age of 12. He soon falls in love with bouldering and at the age of 16 he starts travelling around the world to fulfil his passion, being it competitions or bouldering on rock. During his career he becomes Italian boulder champion, wins the Italian bouldering cup and takes part to many international events and competitions. But it's on rock where he spends most of his time, repeating some of the hardest boulder problems and developing new bouldering areas. Over the years his passion slowly evolves from bouldering to wider aspects of rock climbing, such as sport, trad or multipitch. Nowadays he climbed up to 8b+ boulder, 8c sport and E8 7a trad.
