Federico was born in Ghent and lived in Rome (Italy) during the first 5 years of his childhood. He moved back to Ghent and has been living there ever since.
Federico has a natural Italian flair which has helped him during his career as an account manager the last couple of years. He recently changed his professional ambitions and is now obtaining a special education teacher degree.
But just for the record, Federico started the entire extreme petanque idea during one of his characteristic spontaneous single-person-brainstorm-sessions. Thanks to his colourful character he’s able to get a smile on everybody’s face which helps us enormously to get any extreme petanque party started!
As the “inventor” of the game Federico is a very passionate and enthusiastic extreme petanque player. He loves pushing the limits, but he especially loves the challenge and pressure to land difficult shots on a variety of different surfaces.
Extreme petanque equals friendship to Federico. He could literally spend his entire life playing ball with his friends, while grilling up a steak on the BBQ and drinking an ice-cold Vedett (or two)
