Born in 1978, of Neapolitan origin, he began travelling when he was a child, living first in Copenhagen and then in Rome. As soon as he graduated, he moved to Milan to enrol in the Faculty of Communication Sciences. In 2000 he was chosen as the face of Disney Channel, thus starting his career as a presenter. Given the huge audience success, Rai Uno entrusted him with the conduction of Linea Verde, hence he went on air every Sunday from 2006 to 2010. Since 2014 he is successfully hosting the Linea Bianca television programme of Rai Uno. In 2018 he made his debut as a writer with the book Kalipè- Lo spirito della montagna edited by Rai Libri, which soon became one of the best-selling books of the "mixed literature" genre. He followed with the equally successful books Kalipè - Il cammino della semplicità and, in December 2020, Le Montagne Rosa, published by Rizzoli.
The 42-year-old Roman first gained experience in private broadcasting, then, in 2002, he switched to television, where he worked with the production company Endemol Italia. From 2007, he worked as a programmer-film director for the national public TV company of Italy Rai, in charge of the entertainment programs for RaiUno (among others the Sanremo Music Festival, Miss Italia). The collaboration with RaiTre, the broadcaster of educational programs, began in 2016. He is currently part of the Geo team, a historical program of this TV channel, dedicated to nature and territory. The television reports of the last two years allowed him to combine work with his great passion for the mountains and to deal with many topics of the Italian mountain regions.
