Other information DANCE ENTHUSIAST
Besides his sporting career he likes classical and contemporary dance. He opted for a musical high school rather than a sporting one. "I like dance, and opting for a musical lyceum gives me more chance to practise it. I can study for three days, and the rest I can focus on dance. It's a passion that I inherited from my sister at age five or six, before fencing appeared at age seven." (gazzetta.it, 04 Oct 2018)
