Jacopo believes the true beauty of climbing lies in its potential for constant evolution. This dynamic climber has been adapting his skills and redefining his limits ever since he took his first vertical steps at the age of 10. Born in the South Tyrol, he started out in the world of indoor climbing and was instantly addicted by the sense of freedom it offered. He also enjoyed the honesty and fairness of the sport, quickly realising that the more energy he invested in climbing, the better he became.
