FRANCO GUCCINI - OUR FOUNDER
1925 - 2019
As a child, he had imagined his exhilarating destiny, rich in experiences, just like he was. After traveling all his life, grandpa left for his last trip, as he likes to say he had his little wings on his shoes and traveled the world under the protection of mercury! It is sad to speak to grandpa’s past, Franco GUCCINI, but alas, his breath stopped this December 28 at night. His desire to build his life as he conceived it was granted. Through his work that fascinated him and in his roles as father and grandfather in which he blended perfectly. The stories of his adventures still make us smile and we will miss every moment of our lives. Today Mercury accompanies him on his last flight but, his generosity, his kindness, his empathy, his big heart and all that he did on this earth will remain in the memory of all the people who have had the chance to meet him!
