They first arrived in Rome and were promptly taken to their new skate park located across the street from Cinecitta Studios, just about every skater in Rome was there because who can resist a fresh concrete park. VBS had a chance to talk with Ale Martoriati and Alessandro Gargiulo about being a skater and sticking with it in football crazed Rome. On the way up to Milan they stopped in Savarna to meet up with Giorgio Zattonni, Italy’s first international pro, to talk a little bit about his personal history.
