In the early sixties
Italo Ferretti leaves his native Silvi, in Abruzzo, to move to Milan, where he works in a pharmaceutical company first and then in the transport company of his uncle. The mandatory military service, however, brings him back in Silvi Marina, a few years later. He Became a sales manager for Abruzzo, Molise and Marche of firm Lebole
and immediately realized the huge demand for ties in the textile market
and local manufacturing industry rather lacking in this area. He started
to buy their own ties in Como, that he will resell to its delivery
organization for middle Italy. It was an instant success, so much that
he decided to start his first business by creating a small workshop in
his hometown, where the Company is still located.
