Italian massimo came to lithuania as missionary in 2000.
massimo was born in 1963 in torino really close to the alps and as he stated was in great love with mountains, as a kid he spent a lot of time there with his family. though later he find his new passion and real calling in the salesian don bosco congregation that looked after children living in poverty during and after the industrial revolution.
in 1991 massimo was ordained to a priest and from 2000 he already carried out his mission in vilnius don bosco parish monastery. later he spent 11 years in kaunas palemonas parish and finally he came back to vilnius in 2012 as a leader of salesian community in lithuania.
even though priest massimo is often missing his beloved mountains he finds his serenity in the fields of trakai and ignalina or during his long walks in vilnius and kaunas old towns while stopping in local churches for a prayer.
