Hobbies Spending time with his dog. (pianetascherma.com, 12 Apr 2020)

Hero / Idol Italian fencers Andrea Baldini and Stefano Barrera. (corrieredellosport.it, 28 Sep 2016)

Injuries In October 2017 he required surgery on a collapsed lung. (catania.meridionews.it, 26 Oct 2017)

Sporting philosophy / motto "What we do from a sporting point of view, if we are only limited to the sporting event, wouldn't be that useful. I think that what sport has to teach, the message it has to convey, is the opportunity to come together socially and share positive values." (eurosport.com, 09 Sep 2020)

Awards and honours In 2018 he received the Collare d'Oro [Golden Necklace] from the Italian Olympic Committee [CONI]. (frascatischerma.it, 19 Dec 2018)

Ambitions To compete at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. (vanityfair.it, 10 Mar 2022)

Other information ACADEMIC AMBITION
In March 2022 he graduated with a degree in medicine. "It took me quite some time, 10 years and five months exactly, but not a single minute was wasted. It was a long road combining fencing and medicine, because the discipline needed for both of them is the same. Do not believe that sports and studies cannot get along. It's a lie." (sportface.it, 22 Mar 2022; Instagram profile, 24 Feb 2022)

STOLEN MEDAL
In October 2016, after falling asleep on a train to Turin, his Olympic gold medal was stolen from his backpack. It was later found in a pile of rubbish outside a train station by a local woman who connected with him via social media. "I'm really happy. Even though I'd come to terms with losing the medal, it was like a part of me had been taken away. I asked her to kindly send a photo of it first. Not that I didn't trust her, but I really didn't want to be let down." (straitstimes.com, 13 Nov 2016)
