Carlo Del Fava with Marco Bortolami

Welcome Carlo del Fava

posted on 25 June 2015

Italian Rugby Legend Carlo del Fava has joined the team at Sky High Sports, primarily as a consultant on all things Italian Rugby.

Carlo, who won 54 caps for the Azzurri between 2004 and 2011. He made his debut against Wales in the 2004 Six Nations following injury to Italian Rugby Legend Carlo Checchinato.

During an impressive career, Carlo first came to prominence in his native South Africa, gaining an U21 cap whilst playing at Natal. Carlo made the move to Europe and joined Overmach Parma in 2005. Moves to Bourgoin and Ulster followed before he returned to Italy for spells with both Viadana and Aironi.

Carlo completed his professional career in 2014 following two seasons with Newcastle Falcons. He now resides in the North-East. 

Carlo has gained recent plaudits as the Italian Rugby pundit on the BBC's Six Nations coverage. He was also on the airwaves during the recent World Rugby Junior Championship which was held in Italy in June 2015.

Our Tours to Italy have long since been the stuff of legend. The roots of our business are in the north of the country and we have been fortunate to introduce numerous Rugby Teams from across the world to the unique Italian Rugby culture.

With Carlo's input, we aim to take our tours to the next level and add an X-Factor not available elsewhere.

We have added Parma as a permanent destination on our Map. In previous years, Parma has been a stop off point between our two major destinations in Rome and Lake Como. With Carlo's advice and contacts, we believe that we can create the most in-depth Rugby Experience in Parma, a city which is home to one of Italy's two professional franchises, The Zebre.

Zebre compete in the Guinness Pro-12, and have a long list of Italian Rugby legends on their books, including Ex-Azzurri Captain Marco Bortolami & the brothers Bergamasco.
