Not yet of age Franco, right after a long period of apprenticeship in the laboratories of Monte San Giulsto, thanks to the help of his brothers who allowed him to start the business, he launched himself headlong into the world of entrepreneurship thus managing to fulfill the dream of having a his own shoe factory.
From the small laboratory to the real industrial reality: Franco, who at the time could boast of being one of the youngest industrialists in Macerata in his career, in 1978 decided to initially establish the production site in Monte San Giusto and dedicated himself, thanks to the request of era, to the production of the first Poles and men's boots.
However, his training course did not stop and indeed continued in the following years thanks to the entry into his life of a particularly charismatic character who profoundly characterized his professional maturation.
At the end of the 1980s Franco came into contact with various footwear realities in the Romagna area of San Mauro Pascoli, which at the time boasted already established companies in the sector and in one of these, Pollini, he met Felice Savani, considered at the time the '”The eclectic par excellence of the Sammaurese shoe” and the man who symbolizes Italy's economic miracle.
A character who oversaw the collections of the Pollini brand in the 1960s, as well as historic companies in the district such as Succi, Zamagni and Gori, until in 1979 he obtained the license to distribute the Nazareno Gabrielli brand throughout Italy.
From those years, Franco remembers with genuine esteem and affection all the teachings and guidelines dictated to him by the one who he believed to be, as well as a professional reference, also a teacher of life and a true friend.
