Born in Cagliari, Mario boasts a wide and versatile professional experience ranging from the agricultural sector (he started as a child in the family farm, later becoming the administrator of a coop business), to transportation (he has a CE license and worked as a driver for several years), to the field of installations. In the latter, he worked for a long time in the organization of events, which he took care of across the board, from the structures to the floral decorations. He joined Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli in 2022 and works in base maintenance. The 2024 America's Cup will be his first.
