Michele was jumping with a friend from a high exit in the Alto Adige region. Michele jumped second but no part of his jump was witnessed. He was found amongst trees with the canopy and PC out but still packed, probably as a result of impact. The jump in question offers an extra 500m of elevation if you out fly a large plateau, we can only guess but from the position his body was found he seems to have commited to pass the plateau without sufficient margin. Michele was just returning from injury and was keen to get back to jumping. Michele was also an accomplished climber, well known in climbing circles. Michele (Il Gato / El Gat = the cat) joins his old jumping buddy, Manu (Emanuele Amadori # 122 aka il gufo), Il gato e il gufo are causing mischief again somewhere
