Italian downhill and freestyle skater Massimo Bavieri is also the owner of
Max Bavieri Entertainment, and the producer of a spectacular Italian roller extravaganza called the "Creative Roller Show". His shows are very
flashy and full of amazing stunts and special effects, so they have a great deal of popular appeal. They are frequently booked by the organizers of trade conventions and large regional festivals. Max also produces
other types of skating events, and in 2002 he is organizing the the FIRS World Downhill Skating Championships in Belluno, Italy, scheduled to take place
August 29 through September 1.
Max and Kathie Fry of SkateLog.com met for the first time in
February of 2001 in Trieste, Italy, where Kathie was
visiting the "Art of Artistic Skating" workshop organized by
Elvia and Mario Vitta, the owners of the
Palajolly Roller Palace.
