Gianturco graduated in medicine and surgery, specialising in medical hydroclimatology and thermal medicine, and phlebology. Having always participated in regattas, he learned to love and appreciate the characteristics of various technical materials such as stainless steel and aramid fibres. From there he learned to transfer his experiences with these materials into designing and building the first pieces for his home. He began to receive requests from friends and started short production runs. In 2008, after a sabbatical spent in the USA, he left the practice of medicine to begin design production.
