To tell the truth, Ivano started working for us in 1995, when he was only 20 years old and had just finished his military service. He himself defines his job as beautiful, as he would say: "it's a job in which you never get bored", but it also calls for many sacrifices and is quite often tiring, especially in the head of a young twenty-year-old, whose alarm clock went off every day at 5 am. After a few years, in fact, Ivano decided to leave the company, but eventually came back to us after some other job experiences on the outside. He is fired by a passion for vehicles, which has been with him since he was a child, as he admits "I've always liked model cars", and was strengthened by his period in military service where he had the opportunity to drive military vehicles. From there his passion has continued to grow, working hard and focusing on his specialization on the cranes that here at MARRAFFA have become one of the key strengths of the company's core business.
Ivano mainly uses his favorite vehicle, a three-axis crane that is characterized by its small size but still maintains a high lifting capacity; a machine that you can take anywhere. “Our daily challenge is to never use the word “impossible” "- he says -" even when conditions are precarious and room is tight. It is exactly these conditions that bring out the skill of the operator and Ivano knows this only too well. There is not a particular moment in which experience has been fundamental, but Ivano likes to quote two. “We were in Altamura and we were working on the installation of a construction crane, space was tight, but my colleagues and I managed to get the job done in style”. And then he quotes another one: "This time we were in Bari and were raising the pole of a signal repeater. On this occasion too my colleagues and I were able to rise to the challenge". In his spare time Ivano rides mountain bikes and supports Juventus. He’s hoping for a place in the Champions League. He is certain that this will be their lucky year.
