Ruggero is the founder and publisher of Running Shoes Guru.

After earning his degree in Business Administration in Milan, he moved to the Netherlands where he worked in companies such as Nike, and Adidas/Reebok where he expanded and cultivated his interest for running shoes. Originally a swimmer, Ruggero started running in 2009 while preparing for his first triathlon and has not stopped since. He launched Running Shoes Guru in 2009 because he could not find a reliable, independent and trusted source of running shoe reviews elsewhere on the internet.
