He is the first non-Anglo-Saxon helmsman to win a regatta of the America’s Cup. In 30 years of sporting career he has earned 7 World, 5 European and 15 National titles in various classes, from the Laser to the high ground, from the Star to the 49er and was first in the ISAF World Match Race ranking in 2011.
But the long curriculum also reports three participations in the Olympics and the position of vice world champion in the Moth class.
Checco is a committed person in sport but even before in life. He is humble and friendly, and he never forgets his origins.
When he speaks, he often addresses to others with “compare”, a word that Sicilian people use when speaking to someone they like. He does it with everyone, especially with the boys he trains and works with.

He is a nomad; trainings and competitions take him often around the world but when he has free days he always returns to his city, Palermo which is practically a second home for him.
There is no doubt that today he is a top athlete, a champion, like Pele or Ronaldo, but is he always modest and down to earth.


Checco speaks about his story, the importance of the commitment, the endurance and the resilience, the motivation and the team work, especially in front of difficulties.

He is also deals with sustainability and environment.
