MARCO “THOMAS” TOMASSINI (1971) was born in Italy, in the city of Genoa. He started climbing and making trips to the Finale area in the 1980s, where he later moved. His love of the mountains and rock brought him first to pot holing and then climbing. Within a short time he also started bolting climbing routes particularly in the Finale area. In 2007 he published, with the editors Le Mani Edizioni, his first guidebook to Finale entitled “Finale by Thomas”, a sort of professional CV of his climbing routes. And now it is the turn of his tenth book to be published, a guidebook that describes in detail the walled medieval town, or “borgo”, of Finale Ligure.
