Federico Gallinari's, Fly or Die

Last week, we had the privilege to sit down and have a conversation with talented basketball player and entrepreneur Federico Gallinari. Gallinari talked to us about his experience as a college basketball player, life in Italy, and his brand FLY OR DIE. If you want to hear his story told directly from him, click here to listen to the podcast.


Federico Gallinari’s Background


Gallinari is originally from Italy. He now lives in Michigan and attends Rochester University, where he plays basketball and studies accounting and sports management. He speaks fondly of his older brother, Danilo Gallinari, who plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder, as well as the rest of his family, who all live in Italy. He explained how COVID-19 has impacted his family in Italy and his college basketball experience. Fortunately, things are slowly getting back to normal for him.




FLY OR DIE started as a brand name idea three years ago. A year later, the founders, including Gallinari, decided to use that name for the yearly basketball tournament that they organize in Italy. From there, Gallinari and his partner created a clothing line for which they have designed several shirts, hoodies, and most recently, masks.


Gallinari explained that their upcoming goals consist of organizing more tournaments throughout Italy, expanding their clothing line, and bringing the business into the United States.
