I chose Peru because I have to two friendly that live in this country, an ex- colleague on watch, near the city of the Cusco, member of a contemplative community, and a priest (father I fight Lamb), director of a center for children of the street in Lima. I am of French language-mother, in the school I learned German, during my permanence in Rome I studied the Italian and later I was in Ireland following an intensive course of English. Peruvian treasures – What is what you liked more of Peru? As I like much history and the traditions of a town, I have found many pretty and interesting things in Peru. I believe that a new visit will be necessary to know the treasures the culture Inca and the rich Peruvian kitchen better that esteem and that I knew much in Peru. – Finalized your mission like Swiss Guard, to what you are dedicating yourself? I am in a period of rest and tranquillity. I am being accustomed again to the civil life.
In the future next, my challenge and hope would be to work in the humanitarian scope. – You would like to be priest? It does not have to confuse the service in the Switzerland Guard and the seminary.

The first year on watch, when in occasion of the ceremony of the oath, the 6 of May of 1993, I presented/displayed to my parents to the Pope Juan Pablo II. The second was 9 of November of 2005, when I could personally give to Pope Benedicto XVI the first copy of my book on the history of the Guard, concluding seven years of investigation.
