Calogero works as a hiking guide in the upper and lower regions of the Madonie, with VALLONE WILDERNESS. His career was born from passion: his love for the Madonie and their surroundings led him to explore even the most hidden areas. He started by sharing his discoveries in nature with friends and eventually others. Over time, he created a network of contacts including restaurateurs, artisans, and holiday home hosts in the Caltavuturo area and neighboring towns.
