About the Author

Author Info

I started working as a journalist in the late 1970s, working for motorsport magazines and private TV network. 

However, my interest in the world of motors has always been accompanied by another passion: travels.

I started wandering around the world since I was 18, I liked traveling by car to discover new countries. I began by traveling the roads of Europe, then I moved on to explore North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa, driving for tens of thousands of kilometers.

In my travels I have always favored places where you could discover uncontaminated territories, where nature is protagonist. Since 2013 I have started publishing some travel books that offer itineraries on the roads of Latin America.

In 2020 I founded "Guidare nel Mondo" (www.guidarenelmondo.com), a blog where you can find travel ideas, itineraries and practical advice to explore the most beautiful roads in the world.
