Passionate and experienced guide, Carmelo is the creator and founder of Etna Est, for this reason called “THE LEADER”.
A Catanese business man in a trekking outfit. Among his veins does not flow common blood, but a fluid mixed with loose lava. If you see him smoking while climbing impervious peaks, don’t worry. He does it out of empathy with his “Vulcanessa”.
