When a trip changes your life | Simone Zignoli | TEDxVicenza


– Known for his striking and unexpected participation to the 2011 biking championship in Copenhagen, thanks to a membership with Albania and then for his incredible travels under the banner of adventure. He defines himself as a “Metropolitan Tarzan,” a wild spirit with a chameleon attitude that allows him to adapt to an environmental or social condition. This is why he decided to join his passion for biking and for adventure. Right now he is under the spotlight thanks to the TV show Le Iene, which shared his motorcycle trip with a drug addict. Simone, in fact, by welcoming the desperate appeal via social media of a young mother, took the responsibility to take e fifteen years old on a long trip away from the temptations of addiction, from Chile to Bolivia, to make him understand that life is an extraordinary trip itself, that deserved to be experienced fully. A difficult journey, sometimes dramatic, with the inevitable downturns. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
