Valentino was born in Cagliari in 1990. Always passionate about motorsports, at a young age he approached the world of cars and began his painting career working in his father’s car body shop.  He enters Luna Rossa in 2019, with the task of checking the cosmetics and painting of the hull, and dedicating himself to fairing, painting and wet sanding of the arms and wing foils of the boat. The 36th edition was his first experience in the America's Cup.
