He was born in San Mauro Pascola, where he inherited the tools and traditions of craftsmanship from his father. He observed his father with great interest and learned everything necessary to create small masterpieces to be tied around the feet of women.
He did not attend school, but everything was born with experience from his wise hands. He moved to Milan at the beginning of his 50’s to study and gain experience. He learned that it is better to use his passion to create models and understand what savoir-faire meant only for those who really want to create something unique and unrepeatable. The young man in his early twenties went on and specialized in the profession, his dream. In 1966 he began to sell his products in shops in Bologna.
