Everyone in San Godenzo knows him: he started working as a mechanic at 17 – but also as a tyre mechanic, electrician, and petrol station attendant – and since then, he has been an objective point of reference for the whole community.

Today, he has officially handed over the reins of the shop, but the truth is that you can always find him there: he simply cannot stay away from what used to be his workplace.

The mountain represents a bit of Francesco’s whole life and about the community he is part of, he says: 

‘Here, if you need something, just whistle: out of 1000 people, you will find 800 ready to help you in no time.’
