Massimo writes and publishes articles and photographs in the main climbing magazines in many countries - USA, Canada, South Africa, Germany, Poland, UK, Belgium and of course in Italy where he collaborates with the Up-Climbing magazine.

Massimo has traveled to the most remote areas of the five continents, in over seventy countries, making long journeys by mountain bike, trekking and participating in mountaineering expeditions.
