Years later, Francesco would meet Paolo Dalla Corte by chance when the two would become partners in the Second Chance Project, an initiative at the Bollate penitentiary to provide inmates with the opportunity to refurbish Dalla Corte Evolution espresso machines. Francesco would go on to become the Sales Manager for Europe and America, and later become a key figure in the inception of Dalla Corte USA. Bringing together key figures like Gary Salzman, George Howell, and of course Paolo Dalla Corte, Francesco’s talent for seeking out passionate people helped lead to the creation of a new partnership between Gary and Paolo to bring Dalla Corte to the United States.
Outside of his role as Sales Manager, Francesco is a bit of a thrill seeker with a knack for skydiving. When he's not abroad, he enjoys spending time with his family, particularly during the summertime when he can host barbecues and indulge in his passion for grilling.
