“Paul & Shark and I have so much in common; An Italian company from Lombardy that’s established itself all over the world, I myself was born in Lombardy and have played in the United States at the highest levels since I was barely twenty years old. Representing Italy abroad has always been an extraordinary source of pride and responsibility. Paul & Shark is also a family business, which is very important to me, as my family has an integral part of my life every step of the way.
We also share a love for nature and commitme sustainabilitynt to sustainability. I’ve always felt strongly about this but now that I have become a father it seems unthinkable not to do everything possible to leave a livable world for future generations. To me it’s a moral duty and I’m excited to partner with a company that feels the same way.”
