dialect – was born in Alessandria in Italy
in 1834. After starting as an errand boy
then an apprentice in his home town, he
finds a job at the Berteil hat factory in
Rue du Temple, Paris, where he works for
around seven years before becoming a
qualified Master Hatter.
A year after returning to Italy, Giuseppe
opens his first workshop in a courtyard
in Via Schiavina in Alessandria together
