Nicola was born in Genoa in 1973 and has always lived in north western Italy. His passion for nature and wildlife began when he was thirteen or fourteen, largely due to his uncle and aunt, both nature enthusiasts, who were the first to take him around to places like the Alps and the Camargue looking for birds. After a few years doing various jobs, including working as a nature guide, he started to work as a ranger and fauna surveyer in the River Po Regional Park in Piedmont in 2000 (finding over 50 species of dragonflies and damselfies in the park), and he is still doing the same job with passion and commitment. His interest is now not only limited to birds - he's very fond of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, dragonflies, orchids...and pretty much everything else! He's always loved travelling, and this passion has taken him to over 50 countries in 5 continents, looking for birds, wildlife, nature, culture and local culinary delights! He's been leading tours since 2008 and has led or co-led more than 20 tours since in various European countries as well as in Georgia, Armenia and Egypt. Nicola graduated in foreign languages, speaks very good English, good French and some Spanish.
