Alessio Gasperini - Melthemi: L'Ultimo Tuffo

Alessio Gasperini Alessio Gasperini  15-1-2009 Kite-Surfing is a Way of Life for Alessio

I first met Alessio when  he attended an English class I was teaching. At the beginning of the course he quickly let me know that he would be absent from lessons whenever the wind conditions were right for his great passion, Kite-Surfing

That passion has now been turned into a book, Melthemi: L’Ultimo Tuffo, written over several years by Alessio and published by Pacini Editore in December 2008. It contains a preface by professional kite-surfer Renzo Mancini.
