Sixties - The Tigrotto
Along not paved roads in Irpinia, Giuseppe travelled by his small Apecar, and then by a van with a large trunk, ideal for trucking goods and people to markets in villages nearby.
Always with Giuseppe, two trusted companion: his wife Palmerina and his son Antonio, a child wearing shorts, that inherited from his grandfather his name and his curiosity. With a small Fiat truck, a “Tigrotto”, to give more courage to the company, Giuseppe turned the dime trucking everything the soil produced, for himself and for others. Here begins the lasting union between Lo Conte family and grain, their life’s passion. Do you remember Antonio? The child wearing shorts, that inherited from his grandfather his name and his curiosity? He loved to hear his father talking about grain, and he went with him along Irpinia’s and Samnium’s road, sitting on grain’s sacks, in the truck, smelling the wind, with his heart full of love and admiration for his father.
