Maurizio currently lives in Istanbul where he leads European professional basketball powerhouse Fenerbahce SK as its General Manager. Prior to this he was the first ever non-American VP of an NBA franchise with the Toronto Raptors and one of the most successful GMs ever in Europe. We discuss a journey is riddled with serious life-altering, pivotal moments.
It all started with a motorcycle dangled in front of him as a “carrot” before he left for the US for a brief stint as a foreign student. After coming back, he soon became GM of the pro basketball team of his home town of Forli, well before the age of 30. This started a decades’ long journey that has brought him to embrace the philosophy and andrenalinic approach to learning, impacting people around him and networking. Maurizio’s is a life where pivotal moments were faced head on with the blood of his passion.
