He began his sporting activities in 1999 with: swimming, climbing and free body exercises. Focussing on the latter two from the mid-2000s, he quickly asserted himself in the world of climbing and calisthenics.
Since 2011, he has been showcased on both national and international television, making a variety of official records.
It’s not the case that his one arm performances are the most compelling exercises: Kalì, Tazio’s cat, lost the use of a paw following an accident; but nevertheless, he didn’t give up climbing trees without it.
Today Kalì is still Tazio’s greatest motivation.
Leggings are the common denominator of all his vertical activities. Essentially worn as a tribute to the climbers of the 80s, they are the symbol of free sport, carried out for the pleasure of doing it, without any economic motivation.
