Marco was born in Siena, Italy in a country house. After studying and working in the renewable energy and economics sectors, he left for an adventure of a lifetime in Australia. From there he traveled for months throughout Southeast Asia and Northern Europe. Returning to his happy island, he studied real estate and managed apartments that accommodated travelers. The bicycle came into his life as a game when he participated in the famous vintage race “L’Eroica,” and then became more and more a part of his life. He is now a certified hiking guide and loves sports played in nature, but above all, he loves sharing experiences with the people with whom he establishes enriching relationships. Bikes allow us to always explore new magical places, and Marco appreciates the authenticity of “slow tourism.” He is a curious and lively person, and details always make a difference to him.
