Born in 1953, Giulio Gianturco graduated in Medicine and Surgery (specialising in Medical Hydroclimatology and Thermal Medicine, and Phlebology). From the Eighties, he took part in many regattas and learned to appreciate and love the characteristics of various technical materials (stainless steel, aramid fibres). Here, with a strong passion and creative spirit, he transferred and applied his experience with these materials to design and build his first home furnishings. From then on, he started getting requests from friends and started short production runs. In 2008, having spent a sabbatical year in the States, he left his medical practice to completely dedicate his time to creating design products.
