An activist since the end of the 90`s, Claudio has been part of many campaigns and projects in Italy. In 2002 he co-founded the campaign that forced to close Morini beagle breeders, suppliers of Italian labs since 30 years. The campaign ended with the farm giving 375 dogs and about 700 rodents (rats and mice) to an animal rights organization. Claudio has the luck to be a worker at this organization`s shelters and helped to rehome and rehabilitate many of the severely traumatized dogs.He was also part of AIP anti-fur network, a campaign that made quite a few companies fur-free.
In 2010 co-founded the campaign against Green Hill beagle breeders, which successfully stopped the expansion project of the company and then put so much pressure that all 2.700 beagles in the place have been seized and adopted.
In 2011 co-founded the abolitionist organization Nemesi Animale. Nemesi Animale is working on all animal abuse issues with investigations, protests, information and is working to create a social discussion on the relationship between humans and other animals. Nemesi Animale has recently released an investigation on Italian mink farms and is currently fighting for a ban on fur farming in the country, along with many other campaigns.
