Q&A

When not in the clinic you'll usually find Alessandro doing whatever he can to be close to nature, planning European camping trips, or dreaming up a future that involves him driving to through South America in a camper van.

What do you do for exercise?

In a week, I generally do two sessions of resistance training, around 30km running, and one or two games of football. During better weather, you will often spot me commuting to the clinic on my loyal foldable bike.

You're favourite holiday destination?

There is nothing better than skiing or hiking in the Dolomites, near where I grew up. It has something for everybody.

Something you do better than most?

I make the ultimate Bolognese sauce. No joking! It has been a family recipe for three generations now. Yet to be defeated!
