About me:

I have been passionate about dogs since I was a child, I still remember my first dog a beautiful St Bernard called Lord. My first debut in the show ring was in 1985, at 17 years old with my first Newfoundland “Zeus Degli Angeli Neri”. You can’t understand my joy when he achieved the title of Italian Champion, handled by me!

In 1995 I became breeder of Newfoundlands under the prefix “Newfies”.

As a judge I started judging in 2002 as International judge. After that I started getting interested in others breeds in the 2° FCI group. I have had passion to learn about single breeds leaving together with new breeds as companion.


For many years, I have been a member of many different Club Committees, founder, secretary, auditor of several canine organizations, including the Palermo Kennel Club.

Vice president and board member of the Italian breed club for the Newfoundland, the Club Italiano del Terranova.

I was called by ENCI to be Special administrator of CIABS (Italian club of Swiss mountain dogs).

I was member of the Italian Kennel Club ENCI in the disciplinary board.

I represented the Italian Kennel Club as a member of the FCI in the Rescue Dogs Commission, responsible for drawing up the international “Rescue dog tests”.

Member in the examination board for Italian judges and former judge for new judges.

I was President of SAMANNARA (Club of Cane di Mannara Sicilian ancestral breed)

I'm President of Consiglio Cinofilo Regionale Siciliano (Sicilian Board)


I’ve held several breed seminars for Italian breeds like Cane Corso Italiano, Newfoundland and Swiss mountain dog.


I am approved all rounder judge.

I usually judge 20/25 times a year.

I have judged all over Italy as well as in 25 European Country, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Philippines, Iceland, Perù, Brazil, South Africa.
