I’m originally from Perugia and moved to Brescia with my family when I was five years old. I’ve wanted to be a doctor since I was about eight, when I would chase after my father, also a doctor, by bike as he headed out to the hospital for work.
One evening, my father was called in because a woman was very ill. I followed him, making sure he didn’t see me, and I saw my father take that woman by the hand and smile at her. She opened her eyes and found the strength to smile back, and that smile opened my eyes to the world of medicine. Since that day, I’ve never looked back!
My first position in a hospital was at Brescia’s San Camillo Hospital, after getting my degree in Surgical Medicine in 1991. I worked in general surgery until 1997, and now I am in the urology division of the San Donato Group. My experience working in hospitals and my ongoing training have enabled me to keep my passion for surgery alive, to have a broad-based view of medicine in its current state, and to deal with a great many important pathologies with confidence and tranquility as an ozone therapist.
In 1982, my father opened Brescia’s first ozone therapy facility, so I had begun to live and breathe this element when I was still in secondary school.
After university, I took the officials-training program to become a medical screening officer.
