Born in 1975 in Turin, he graduated in theoretical philosophy with Giuseppe Riconda at the University of Turin. In 1997 he started doing street theater. Since 2006 he has dedicated himself to cable walking at great heights. The intuition of the absolute he had while walking at great heights brings him closer to the practice of Zen meditation, which he deepens under the guidance of Shodo Harada Roshi at the Sogen-ji temple in Okayama, Japan. In 2011 Andrea set the Italian record in the skies of Pennabilli, in Romagna, covering 250 meters at a height of 90mt between the hills of Penna and Billi; while in Rocca Sbarua, in the province of Turin, he walked 160 meters above the ground.
