In an interview in the newspaper Repubblica, a few years back, the Cavaliere Giovanni Bergozza talked about how he began his profession in 1948: "I was 12 years old and I was hungry. My father was in Africa, working, I was the oldest of 5 brothers, my family was poor. What else could I do having reached only fifth grade at school? I showed up at the first firm I found, Consolaro. The owner employed me to clean the lathe, a true iron monster. Then little by little he allowed me to use the press and the drill, and there I was, pushing the button and the lever all day long". 

An incredible example of dedication; a man who was able, in time, to create a company that is today a world leader in the design and construction of leather processing machines, Bergi S.p.A.

He passed away on March 30. The family remembers him this way:

His love for his family, the joy he felt for his job and the cult of honesty were luminous realities of his life.
