Sebastiano Salvetti


Freelance journalist and photographer, I have a degree in law in a drawer somewhere. I’m a four-wheel specialist, both in modern and vintage cars, but my heart beats for mountain sports and cycling. World citizen, I prefer Yosemite National Park to Piazza San Marco. Born in Val Camonica (in the province of Bergamo, Italy), weaned (journalistically speaking) in Milano and Venetian (of Veneto) by adoption, I’m a country boy at heart; in the good and the bad.


Favourite quote:

“I never bring flags on mountains: I never leave anything on peaks, if not my tracks, very briefly, before the wind erases them” (Reinhold Messner)
