Piero Frustascarpe

I'm 69 years old and live in Torino (Turin), North-West Italy. I hike on Alps and run since ever. I love very much and regularly practice trail running, cross-country skying and nordic walking. Some years ago I discovered the beauty of caminos and with a lot of pleasure and excitement I explore the ancient pilgrim trails that are all over Italy and lead to Shrines and ancient places of worship.
I devote much attention to the "techie" aspects of walking: biomechanics, physiology, nutrition, equipment, GPS tracking...
About my backpack: "How could it be lighter?..." and "Less is more!"
About my gear: "I only need a pair of good shoes and a finnish puukko. The rest is optional".
Torino, Italy
When did you/are you planning to walk?
Via Francigena and a lot of less known Italian Caminos
