A UNIQUE BUSINESS PROJECT ORIGINATED FROM AN INGENIOUS INTUITION OF RICCARDO IOVINO: THE FIRST ITALIAN COMPANY TO PERFORM ROPE ACCESS

Ediliziacrobatica® was founded in 1994 by Riccardo Iovino, a Genoese skipper who used to sail around the world, with a true passion for the wind and the sea and a great ability: he knew how to move at height with agility performing works of maintenance on the sailboat masts with ropes.

Fully determined and convinced that he could transfer and apply that tecnique also to the construction industry, Riccardo Iovino quickly became a successful manager and built a unique reality in Italy. This is how Ediliziacrobatica® was born, the first Italian company that has realized outdoor building works without using expensive and bulky scaffolds, but through the innovative technique of the double safety rope access.

The rope access tecnique derives from alpinism and allows operators to easily access roofs and move in suspension in front of the façades of any building and at any height without limits, to accomplish every kind of refurbishment, maintenance and cleaning (from the simplest works on gutters, flues and windows to the more complex ones, such as roof, balcony and façade makeover). The intuition of Iovino was brilliant and in a few years he became the General Manager of an unprecedented business, introducing a brand new service with highly competitive performances that literally revolutionised construction industry.

 

Every success story starts with a great idea

 

Everything began in the early ’90s, when Iovino, just over thirty years old, met a friend who had to repair a gutter located in an inaccessible point and already received plenty of high estimates for the rental of the proper scaffolding. Riccardo offered to do the job, climbing into the roof with a rope, the same way he has used for years to get to the top of his sailing boats masts. In a few hours the problem was fixed, the gutter repaired and the future Fondeur of Ediliziacrobatica® earned a bottle of wine. But above all, he had an idea: the use of rope allow to effectively intervene externally to the buildings with huge earnings in terms of time and money that traditional approach do not offer. This is how he remembers that moment:

 

“FROM THE ENTHUSIASM AND THE GRATITUDE  I RECEIVED AFTER MY ASSISTANCE,

I HAD THE CHANCE TO CONCEIVE A USEFUL SERVICE FOR MANY PEOPLE:

MAKING SIMPLE WHAT IS OTHERWISE COMPLICATED,

WITH ECONOMIC AND EFFICIENT BENEFITS.”

 

Iovino understood that with rope access tecnique people could earn money and time, getting many benefits, such as  avoiding scaffolds in front of the window. “We want to take care of any Italian home by removing any inconvenience: no horrible scaffolding, no risk of intrusion from the outside, total freedom for residents ”

After all, rope access was already performed abroad, for example for the ordinary maintenance of Eiffel Tower; so Iovino decided to personally test the efficacy of this method in light tasks, such as the replacement of gutters and downspouts, the installation of flues and anti-roosting devices, as well as minor interventions for the partial restoration of facades, terraces and cornices. In the early period he managed everything: customers, administration and work. It was only the beginning of an amazing growth.

 

A dream, a project, the competence and the will to work hard.
Here is the key to success of EdiliziAcrobatica®

 

The recent history of EdiliziAcrobatica® saw its presence in more and more complex structures, from those of great historical and cultural relevance to the ones damaged by catastrophic events, crossing throughout Italy and working in primary contexts, such as the Lingotto of Turin, Ponte Vecchio in Florence, the Roman Forum, the Basilica of San Vittore in Verbania, just to mention some.

Thanks to advanced technologies, the reliability of the brand and a continuous training, the company is growing at dizzying speed. Today EdiliziAcrobatica® is a business corporation with several direct and franchised offices in the main Italian cities and with constantly increasing sales volumes. In 2015, EdiliziAcrobatica® created the first franchise network in the building trade, becoming a unique business enterprise. 2017 is another basic year for the company that accesses the capital market, issuing bonds for 5 million euros listed on ExtraMot-Pro, the Italian Stock Exchange. In addition, in step with its values and philosophy, EdiliziAcrobatica®is leading a project that involves pediatric hospitals: the acrobatic workers give up a rest day and turn into superheroes to lower themselves from the roofs of the pediatric wards and let children smile… Business achievments and much more!

 

This is the result of Riccardo Iovino and his associates’ mentality, they share the same philosophy and the desire to grow more and more.
