In 1959 Elvio, Walter's father opens his laboratory, and with many sacrifices he begins his personal business, in which father and son still work together.


Before then, Efisio, Walter's grandfather and Elvio's father, did not have a fixed place in which to practice his profession and shared the laboratory with his brother, which is why Elvio had a lot of experience with his father, his life teacher to whom he was very close;


skilled potter, Elvio already mastered the famous Sardinian clay at an early age, with which he learned quickly and with great skill and speed to make ceramics, satisfying the many requests of "Strexiu" for families, in which scivedde, brogne were used daily for olives, water jugs, but also objects to decorate the house, such as flower vases, the beautiful jugs of the bride by Assemini, unique in their kind and with a shape that only an expert can shape.
