I launched “Il basket secondo Mez” (in English sounds like “Basketball according to Mez”) on April, 2019. Mez is my nickname since long time, because of my family name Mezzini.
Basketball is a long-lasting passion, I was looking to make something new, a storytelling based on my personal experiences. Visiting New York, I had the chance to stop by the main basketball courts in Harlem, Brooklyn, Manhattan and attend tournaments. The energy and the streets of New York inspired me to make this project happen.
The main topics of the website are hoop-culture, basketball stories and ispiring interviews to Under 35s who made a career in basketball or launched projects related to it. My goal is to build a bridge between Italian and American basketball, leading people to discover this sport off the court.
