Pietro Trabucchi is a Sports Psychologist who, since the beginning of his career, has focused on sport performance; in particular, about the disciplines of endurance.

He was the Sports Psychologist for the Italian Olympic Cross Country Ski Team for the 2006 Olympics in Torino (2 Gold medal), and for many years has been the psychologist of the National Italian Triathlon teams.  Currently - with great satisfaction- he dedicates his time to the National Italian Ultramarathon teams in addition to the Italian Olympic Rowing Team, and helps numerous athletes with their endurance challenges.

Author of various books, he is also Professor at the University of Verona and collaborates with the Center for research in Bioengineering and Physical Education of Rovereto ( CERISM) as well as with the Institute of Sport Sciences of Rome.  He has also taught workshops in motivation and stress management for various private companies.

He holds two degrees (despite his past as an unruly secondary school student), one in Psychology, and the other in Sociology. The influence of sociology in his work is seen in the importance he gives to environment, cultural factors and to habits in determining the mental structure of people.

Having practiced martial arts as a child, he then became passionate in the disciplines of endurance and, living in the mountains, of mountaineering. For ten years he organized and trained expedition aimed at obtaining world records on the highest peaks in the world.  He climbed himself Mount Everest from the North Face in 2005 with the "Everest Vitesse" expedition, and has participated actively in various other expeditions (Elbrus, Aconcagua, Kilimanjiaro).  In 2016 he organized the scientific expedition "Alaska Stress Challenge" with a climb of the Denali, highest peak in North America.  Passionate about trail running, he has run and completed 4 times both the Tor Des Geants and the PTL; as well as the Yukon Arctic and "Rock and Ice Ultra" in the Canadian Arctic.  He runs when he can find time and loves both the theory and the practice of training.  He lives in Valle d'Aosta.
