Dr Pili graduated as a Medical Doctor with Summa cum Laude between Italy and Germany and trained as an Orthopaedic Surgeon between Italy and the United Kingdom. From his first experience as an Erasmus student in Germany in the Freie Universität of Berlin he understood the importance of an international training. Just after graduating he enrolled  at GMC and moved to the United Kingdom to gain more experience in Emergency and General Medicine in Liverpool and Rotherham. He began his training in Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology in Newport Isle of Wight and Wakefield south of Leeds together with renowned surgeons.
