I was born in March 1950 in Piombino and two years later came Fabio, my brother. Let's say that the Lord has designed in a complementary way: the exuberance and desire to surprise the one hand, reflection and logic Euclidean other. Certainly Beppe, our father, has equipped both the determination needed to get down to our ideas. The 70 were complicated, it is about to end the "Italian comedy", the smile replacing the dramatic vision of reality, the socio-economic and political change: the radiant decades earlier you get to the progressive tightening of social conflict and political , with the eruption of terrorism, the economic crisis, and a widespread sense of insecurity. Piombino in those years this state of mind is felt across, get muffled, you feel safe under the wing of the big steelworks: the economic crisis seems a distant threat. The big company ensures support for the family, the serenity. Who's working age take the road of a permanent job. However there were too many compromises that I could not accept myself, and I indulged my nature accepting my first big challenge: despite not thriving economic condition of my family, I give up secure employment to lay the foundations for future business. 1975 was time to invent a job. Rule number one: look analytically and wonder what there is to be improved. And then: a problem, an opportunity. This motto will accompany me throughout my future experience. Only a few months ago I discovered that Galileo had already said something similar, but I swear that he had never met in the fields around the house ... My father Beppe had to rent a few acres of land to Diaccioni who cultivated especially for third screw, and I helped him in daily work and in the meantime, for passion, I repaired engines, they smontavo them assemblavo. My mother looked after the home Iolanda and sold the harvest of fruits and vegetables. Fabio had just been hired as an instrumentalist in Magona. The work between the rows had flaws and I noted them every day on my skin. There was in fact an enormous amount of effort and time. Then I thought of making a winch that is driven by a rudimentary machine, trainasse a plow size appropriate to switch between the rows: this solution possible to prevent the fatigue of the spade and saved time. Within a few days I built my and word of mouth did the rest of the farmers in the area of Salivoli bought the first 10 winches and from there came the first gain. Household equipment workshop in the barn we had in our house, including a primary school and the family closer. A few years later, as soon as I was able, I bought that house for my parents. Even before my. The next step was to convince Fabio, my brother, to join me in this challenge and Fabio left Magona Italy. It was 1977, together we founded the company "Brothers Pietrini". One afternoon it was fumbling in the same fund when we saw a gentleman who was watching with meticulous attention to our work. It was not there for us but for our mother, did not want to fix an engine but buy some vegetables. Yet one random visit laid the foundation of the company we know today. Our business began slowly to get going thanks to small jobs, but we never hoped for such an opportunity. The engineer Politi, then estimated Director of Dalmine, saw the desire and the passion with which we worked and gave us, in the dark, a big assignment: the line marking the pipes, equipment still in use. The car was appreciated and from that moment began to get larger and larger orders from customers. In 1980 came the first patent marked Brothers Pietrini. We have designed, built and developed the Mangiasassi: a machine that can crush rocks it encounters in its path on farmland. At the time, a tool quite important especially in certain areas very rocky. The work was growing and needed reliable people ready to help me out. What most interested me was (and still is) the will and not be afraid to take hard work, after you learn the craft. I went to make a turn on the port of Piombino, and found Massimo Poli on the dock in the sun which downloaded sardines, I said - come to work with me -. He dropped the box, sardines abandoned to their fate, and it was our 35 years is the capoofficina. A few days later it was the turn of Renato Cicconi. I remember I was working on the ground with his head down and I screamed from the field - as Renato standest? Veni you to work with us? - Answer: - yes, I finish here and I come off - and he did. Domenico sharpeners. He was a boy, was a barber and every 10 days, on time, knocked on the door and told me - looking for work, you have it? - At the tenth time I told myself that if he returned I would have been content. And here Domenico: - looking for a job, you have it? - And I said, see you tomorrow -. Today is one of the best mechanics I've ever seen. The Rossana instead was to make the bills in the barn / workshop after school in accountancy. He was 14! The I lent the moped. Now holds the entire administration of the group. In 1985 we bought the first shed. The Group SpA Sider Piombino covers 34,000 square meters of industrial land and has 9,000 square meters of covered sheds, divided into machine shop and carpentry, of 600 square meters of offices as well as a sandblasting and painting. Then, in 1987, comes the second woman, Marella Picchi. Washing machines at the car of his father with such commitment that I said - I would try an employee administrative and your daughter - all agree! Same story with Pazzagli James, brother of the former mayor of Suvereto, and Mario Lisi, company in just 17 years. Everyone has worked hard, with passion and sacrifice. Their common denominator is the willpower. It is they who have made the company. And in 1990 we became Sider Piombino srl. The second big jump when the orders came from Lucchini. I came across a brilliant young engineer Livorno, Giacomo Iacovazzi. She handed me her first project executive in 28 years. Today has a unique curriculum throughout Italy and holds our technical department. In 1999 we achieved the double-double girder gantry crane rails for storage of 108 meters, the only machine in the world capable of lifting and moving rails of similar size but these do not buckle. The following year is the turn of the jib crane for loading the slabs to be wharf, and, subsequently, the unloader for the unloading of the raw materials with productivity up to 1800 tons / hour. Across the group we are now more than 100, and at times, with the armature, you also get to 400/500. What makes me believe that they are on the right track is when one of my takes me his son and asked me to teach him a job as well as I did with him 20 years earlier. In 2004 we conceived, designed, built and put into operation the first power co-generated by biomass of Italy. It Is 2005 the transition to joint-stock company. I am deeply convinced that what has been done and are doing to Africa must be repaired, so in 2012 I opened collaborations with some of the most beautiful and abused of that beautiful continent. They are as we were after the war. And this will be the future. Teach these young people to get by with their own efforts. The current bet Sider Piombino SpA.
