Elio was born in Brescia on July 4, 1953. His culture is that of a man of his land, based on technology and practicality. His path starts from his father's garage and his dreams lead him to establish IB. He teaches his children the most important values: humility, concreteness and transparency. Elio is, in his own way, an artist capable of transforming brass, the material he prefers, into unique sculptures that have always been recognizable without needing to be signed.
