"What we do from a sporting point of view, if we are only limited to the sporting event, wouldn't be that useful. I think that what sport has to teach, the message it has to convey, is the opportunity to come together socially and share positive values." (eurosport.com, 09 Sep 2020)

In 2018 he received the Collare d'Oro [Golden Necklace] from the Italian Olympic Committee [CONI]. (frascatischerma.it, 19 Dec 2018)

General
ACADEMIC AMBITION
In 2020 he used the enforced lockdown caused by COVID-19 to focus on his degree in medicine. He hopes to graduate after the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. "I have done something that I had not done for a long time, that is, I put the university [studies] in the foreground so I hope to be able to graduate shortly after the Olympics in 2021. By studying a lot in these months and maybe at the beginning of the next sporting year, I should be well advanced. I am devoting myself a lot to studying. It has been a long time since I did this and I get a lot of satisfaction from it. I'm prouder of what I have accomplished from an academic point of view than of what I have accomplished in sports. What I have accomplished in my academic career is nothing to what I have achieved in fencing of course, but I am really proud of it because it's a result of all my sacrifices." (eurosport.com, 09 Sep 2020; pianetascherma.com, 12 Apr 2020)

STOLEN MEDAL
In October 2016, after falling asleep on a train to Turin, his Olympic gold medal was stolen from his backpack, and was later found in a heap of garbage outside a train station by a local woman who connected with him via social media. "I'm really happy. Even though I'd come to terms with losing the medal, it was like a part of me had been taken away. I asked her to kindly send a photo of it first. Not that I didn't trust her, but I really didn't want to be let down." He later thanked the woman by inviting her to a celebratory meal. (straitstimes.com, 13 Nov 2016)
