Entry Description

Since I was a child, I had the great fortune to spend a lot of time with my grandfather Alido, born in 1926. I had the opportunity to dive into his big passion that is to breed, train and take care of homing pigeons in order to attend provincial and interprovincial speed championships. He started as a pigeons’ lover in the far 1952 by subscriving to the Italian Federation. Day after day he never stopped, remaining among the most long-lived national breeders and keeping on passing his own desire and determination to the youngest.
