Born in Sicily, of a Venetian mother, in 1986.
Biologist, Wildlife Researcher, Route setter in the CUS Catania climbing wall.
In 2010 he took his first steps into the climbing world. Even if he is now a passionate boulderer, in that time he was used to climbing in the Easter Sicily crags.
Bouldering is not fully developed as the sport climbing. It has always been practiced by a minority of climbers, in some beautiful, uncrowded areas: Golden Blocks, in Messina; Leto Blocks, in Messina; Pollina Blocks, in Palermo; Parco Forza, in Ragusa; Bosco Scorace, in Trapani).
Since 2013 he has begun to climb in the Boulder area of Bronte Blocks at the slopes of the Etna, near the town of Bronte (in the province of Catania), discovered by his friend and climbing mate Stefano Anile. Since then he has been focused on such discipline and has cleaned and set more than 200 routes up to 7b+/7c.
Thanks to his business committments he broadened his horizons, and climbed in many other, well known, boulder areas: Pietre Piane, in Abruzzo; Soriano, in Lazio; Amiata and Sassofortino, in Toscana; Val Daone, in Trentino Alto Adige. Here he took the opportunity of culturally and technically grow.
In the last years Davide, named as “Cumpà”, wrote the first book guide of the bouldering area of Bronte, one of the most interesting climbing spot in Southern Italy.
