Jacopo Virgili

I was born in San Benedetto del Tronto (Italy) in 1981 and I lived my youth in the beautiful town of Montalto Marche, in the Ascoli Piceno province.
I am graduated in five years Communication studies at Padova University and I lived and worked there until 2008. Now I live in Trento.
Travelling is, without any doubt, my true passion, and I'm used to take pictures during my trips. I used color slides as well as b/w films, according to the differents subjects: reportage, street photography, portraits, landscapes and wildlife.
My photographic equipment comprises my first Yashica FR-II, a Nikon D-50 and the last Canon G 16. Among my favourite hobbies I list trekking, the environment, reading and surfing, both the web and the sea.

I am passionate for travel literature along with ethnic and phisical geography. I prefer reading books in original language to improve my language skills.
I am an active member of Slow Food Italia, Touring Club Italiano, National Geographic and Club Alpino Italiano.
Enogastronomy, sustainable tourism and blog copywriting are my main interests. Passionate for the mountain, when it is possible I go into the wild. I play football professionally.
