The first of his challenges was in 2001, the “Marathon des Sables”: it’s a marathon of 250 km in the desert of Sahara.
Bellini in the next year took part of Alaska Ultrasport, a race which you carry the sled for 2000 km. The sand, the ice and the sea.
In 2005 Bellini has rowed from Mediterraneo to Atlantic ocean for 11000 km all the way alone for 7 months and half.
In that year he has rowed from Quarto ( near Genova) to Fortaleza (Brasil) doing 10,000 km in 226 days, surviving also a shipwreck. The results are fantastic and Bellini also has been award with Ironman medal. For every adventure Alex defined the concet of “possible”.
He didn’t adventure for the glory or for the sport performance but for the vital knoledge of himself
Bellini make use of his extraordinary experiences and from a lot of conferences he is invited trasmitting what he has learned.

The first step to save our planet is connecting human to the nature
