Alessandro grew up in the hilly region of Monferrato before moving to Turin. There, he gained a degree and Ph.D. in philosophy, just in time to discover that the world didn’t need another philosopher. At this point, his friend Pierdomenico suggested he start writing children’s stories. Since then, Alessandro has written more than thirty books, published in numerous countries.
