Francesco Calvetti

Friday 3 June 1994, a young man who doesn’t seem that young attacks on the last climb. Down towards Lienz in a reckless aerodynamic position, he will be only preceded by the escape of the day. Another young man inadvertently spends the weekend in the mountains, sleeping in a hut. Did he miss something?

Francesco Calvetti is professor of Soil Mechanics at Politecnico di Milano. His research is about soils and rocks, from sand grains to mountains. As Rector’s Delegate for Sports he promoted the PolimiRun and dreams about a PolimiBike. He tries to stay fit with running, cycling and mountain biking. He likes to wear the polka dot jersey and the blue one of Politecnico. He photographs stars, mountains and other random items. He recently decided that he is able to write the story of a stage for SenzaGiro.
