I was born on September 1996, I have been regularly driving since turning 4 years old. Son of a successful rally driver and a co driver, you might think that having parents who both have motorsport in their blood might mean a career behind the wheel was inevitable, but this wasn't the case, I chose my own way.
What followed was several years racing in kart – very fast, driving around the world from circuits in Europe to circuits in Africa, North America, Asia and Australia. The first race win didn't take long, winning my second kart race at 7 years old. By 2008 I won the European Championship, and then after stepping up to a higher class I claimed the Italian karting championship in 2009 and 2011. Also in 2011 I competed in the World Championship challenging drivers like Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen, Esteban Ocon and George Russel.
After years of circuit racing the new challenge was rallying - a sport synonymous with the Vita name. After learning the ropes in Italian junior events, in 2018 I stepped up to the European Rally Championship finishing fifth in the ERC Junior U27 category, following a series of top four finishes in my first season competing in rallies outside my home country.
