Valentino was born in Cagliari in 1990.  Always passionate about motorsports, he approached the world of cars at a very young age, working as a painter in his father's auto repair and body shop. He landed in Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli in 2019, with the task of controlling the finish and painting of the hull and is dedicated, in particular, to the fairing and wet sanding of the boat's arm wing foils. The 2024 America's Cup will be his second, again with Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli. His hobbies are motorcycle trips with friends and off-roading in the mountains.
