Raised in a very small village clinging to the southwestern slopes of the Alps, Isacco fell in love with the bike as he climbed all the alpine passes that surrounded his birthplace. Just after getting a PhD in Physics, he decided to travel around the world. He worked and rambled for several years in New Zealand, Australia, southeast Asia, and Nepal to see the world and learn about different lifestyles.

After six months, under the light of the midnight sun in Norway, he decided to go back to Italy and pursue his passion for travel as a job. DuVine was exactly what he was looking for.
