Ciao, Max Panini

Today, the Italian Masters come together in grief over your loss. After two years of suffering, you leave us due to that fall during a roller marathon. Born in August 1960, you were a true master of wheels and blades. Starting out in Collalbo only a few years ago, with makeshift skates, you were a constant and appreciated presence in the Master Revival in Baselga since then. Always trying to improve yourself, you did your best in several major competitions for masters around the world.

With your dedication, you became a key figure in your inline club Invicta Skate, as well as in the Claut ice club, always ready to help and share your expertise. You were even able to race on short track, and your perfectionism in sharpening skates was well known.

Monica, your life and sport partner, shared every emotion with you. As her personal coach, you showed unparalleled love and patience.

Your spirit will continue to inspire us. We will miss you deeply, but your memory will live on in our hearts.

Rest in peace, dear Max.

With affection, your Master friends.
