Born to a family of climbers, Francesco discovered his talent and passion for rock climbing in his early years.
When he was 14, some friends invited him to join them for a steep climb: he just couldn’t get enough! Later on, he enrolled to a local gym and began to train hard. Only a couple of months after, he made it onto the podium of his first competition.
The story goes on: in 2015 Francesco won the Italian National Championship and competed in the Senior World Cup of 2016. He kept on training and competing until he couldn’t take it anymore, and decided to leave for Australia. 2 years later, he’s now an essential part of the Hang On team.
When he’s not climbing, he can be found riding the waves in Famara or doing some yoga at home. Come and meet him!
