    His father was part of the editorial team behind RAI Sport, one of Italy’s leading sports channel, for a lifetime and taught himself to play tennis by imitating his idol, Ivan Lendl. When Riccardo was born, his destiny seemed to have been prescribed: “My father immediately put a racket in my hand, by the time I was four I already owned one.” He was subsequently recruited by the Under 12 Italian national team and went on to lead them to victory, by 15 he was competing in Italy’s third professional league, motivated by tennis players such as Riccardo Ghedin and Flavio Cipolla. He soon became a certified instructor for the Italian Tennis Federation and completed his training at the Professional Tennis Registry, an American association that promotes tennis around the world. Meanwhile, he collaborated with important international academies, meeting Emilio Sanchez of the Sanchez-Casal Tennis Academy in Barcelona and Nick Bollettieri of the Bollettieri Tennis Academy in the US.

    The Colosseum

    Quote on request

    Rome’s symbol throughout the world and proof of Romans’ amazing knowledge of construction. A place where the extravagance, whims and cruelty of the Emperors were loosed and coordinated to gain the people’s favor. However, we are not talking only of the Colosseum. The 78 hectares around it hold some of most famous monuments of the ancient world, from the Roman Forum to the Circus Maximus and the Domus Aurea. Here you can walk by the Arch of Constantine, a huge monument erected to celebrate the Emperor’s victory over Maxentius, Emperor Nero’s palace, through the Roman Forum under the Palatine Hill, from whence the legends say that Romulus dug the trench within which he founded the city.

    Castel Sant’Angelo

    Not far from the Vatican, on the right bank of the Tiber, stands the tomb willed by Emperor Hadrian. A long bridge adorned with angel sculptures leads to the Castel Sant’Angelo, which within its walls holds the nuances of the Eternal City’s past and present. It was also a fortress, a dark and terrible prison and a splendid Renaissance residence. A building that has changed its face and function, closely following the transformations of the city.
