Biography

Diego prefers hunting in grottos with a short speargun and harpoon.

He usually uses the Viper 55 with Mares Pro 4-pronged harpoon and EOS Pro torch.

He has also been known to catch diffident snappers with his Viper Pro DS 110 in important competitions.

His main fishing location is the shallow Adriatic sea off Bari, but recently he transferred to Gozo (Malta) for work, where he also dedicates time to spearfishing in deeper waters with his Mares gear- Razor Carbon fins, Viper mask and Squadra wetsuit are Diego’s choices for the most challenging dives.

In Gozo, Diego has opened a Freediving center where he is an SSI Freediving instructor and FIPSAS Spearfishing Instructor, a job filled with passion in which Mares Freediving products guarantee comfort and security in the water: the hydrodynamic Infinity wetsuit, Smart Apnea computer and Mares nose clip have become inseparable companions on his new adventure.
