Giovanni Zaccaria

I was born in Padua in 1989, I live in the Dolomites and I spend most of my free time into the mountains and travelling aroung the world. In 2014 I got the Master in Chemical Engineering. While I was studing in Padua, Lisbon and Zurich, I realized that mountains fit to me more than laboratories. As well I preferred clouds getting pinkish at sunset to neon lights.
Now I work as a professional mountain guide all year long on rocks, snow and ice. I'm also technician of the Mountain Rescue team.
I love to be one thing with nature, to bivouac on a small ledge halfway a big wall, to watch a deer running under a snowfall, to melt snow and cook dinner outside my tent in a glacier, and to light a fire under the bright stars of a desert night. I love guiding my clients in the mountains and helping them to feel the same emotions, to enjoy beautiful landscapes, to learn safety techniques and, why not, to taste tipical food and wine of the Dolomites region!
