A bolt from the blue struck in the early hours of this morning Italian motoring worldwhen the tragic news of Filippo’s passing spread ‘Momo‘ Mometto.
Absolutely unexpected news and which will certainly require investigations for it to have any explanation. At the moment, the most accredited hypothesis is that of a sudden illness which would have surprised the motorcyclist perhaps while he was sleeping.
The timely arrival of rescuers unfortunately it did not prevent the death on site, which had already occurred.
The tragedy occurred in Trentin the house where the 24 years old he had moved some time ago to also continue his student career.
He was in fact enrolled in the faculty of computer engineering at the university of the capital of Trentino Alto Adige.
