Born in Treviso, his mother took him to "La Ghirada" (the sports center owned by the Benetton organization) to start him as a volleyball player, but the basketball coaches got him first... He hasn't got the foot speed to play like a power foward, but does have a nice soft touch to hit shots from five meters, facing the basket... For this reason he is effective in both pick and roll and pick and pop situations, especially with long time team-mate Bulleri... He has a sixth sense for offensive rebounds and tap-ins, he can be used as a part of a transition offense and can finish with a dunk... A good shot-blocker and a free-throw shooter... As a rookie he had a terrific impact at EuroBasket 1997, a factor in the silver medal. With Benetton he has won 13 trophies...
