Mattia makes diving his passion from an early age. As a child, he went with his mom and dad on their local dives in the pools of the Verzasca and Maggia rivers. From the shore, he followed the air bubbles that passed through the sumptuous granite rocks and wondered what was so fascinating under there. A few years later he wanted to find out first-hand and therefore he decided to go into diving training and became a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. He has been conducting courses and guided dives for several years.
