Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He began fencing at age six.

Why this sport? "My cousin practised fencing and during a family dinner, while he was putting his weapons in the trunk, I wanted to try them. Since that day I have never stopped practising this sport. They had to take me away from the gym by force. I trained every day at the Foligno Fencing Club."
