In 1994 we were both beginners (novellini, in Italian) in this field, so it was a pleasant surprise to be met with success at our first try – it made us very enthusiastic. I remember that our first drawings were so elementary that the first models the company made did not even include some of the surfaces we intended them to have. So we decided to study them on our own in every last detail by making our own model.
