We can say that Alessandro’s passion for motor racing has begun even before his birth. His mother Ivana, in fact, was following Vittorio, Alessandro’s father, along the tracks during her pregnancy, as at the time he was both racing kart driver and tuner. Realisticly, sound of engines and petrol smell sticked in Alessandro’s head even before coming to this world… In his youth, Alessandro mainly had one activity: running around his parent’s house wearing his older brother’s helmet, racing driver as well, simulating the engine sound with his voice and using a round cookies plastic cover as steering wheel.

The first time Alessandro drives a real kart is at 8 years old. Being older than kids that make their first experience in the 50cc class, he debuts directly in the 60cc Minikart, with no experience at all compared to his competitors. The first contact is quite harsh, but after some races and acquiring experience, Alessandro obtains his first victory, and begins his path. At 12 years old, he switches to 100cc Junior class, a big step looking at the might and performances of the kart, but he quickly demonstrates to be fast, gaining victories in the regional championship and becoming in 2001 Italian champion in the regional team’s cup.

In 2002 he moves up in class, and wins at the very first race.

In 2006 Alessandro steps up to 100cc FA, the top class of karting and where many of the stars of F1 have raced. Senna, Schumacher, Alonso, Button, Hamilton, the list is endless.

In 2007 Alessandro extends his effort to endurance racing, and wins the 12h of Pomposa, one of the classics. During mid-season, he signs with Tonykart Racing Team to participate in the Open Masters Championship, and is one of the contenders for the victory in every race, with consistent results on the podium.

At the end of 2007 Alessandro signs with Kosmic Racing Department, and is in the top 10 of the World Championship. He almost wins the Asia-Pacific championship, stopped only by a mechanical failure that sets him in 4th. In 2008 he’s runner-up at the Andrea Margutti Trophy and in the second round of the European Championship KF1. He also steps on the podium in the WSK Championship, and is 6th over 30 contenders in the World Cup in Suzuka. In 2009 he’s on double duty racing in two classes: Super KF, single-gear, and KZ1, shifter karts. Alessandro demonstrates his adaptability being competitive in both. At the World Championship he is one of the top contenders, having signed the 2nd fastest lap time in qualifying and dominating most of the heats with ease. Unfortunately a contact by another driver in the pre-final ends his run and sets his start position for the final at the back of the field. He is 8th after a furious comeback, signed by the fastest lap.
