My adventure began in the bustling city of Rome, where I found myself staying at one of its finest hotels. With 17 years of experience as a professional concierge, my life took an unexpected turn in 2017 when I received a devastating diagnosis just before my wedding. The aggressive and invasive nature of the malignant carcinoma on my tongue gave me a prognosis of only one month to live.
 Despite the challenges brought by this dreadful illness, I stumbled upon a hidden blessing waiting to be revealed. My soon-to-be spouse, Federica, proved to be an unwavering source of strength and comfort. As I went through surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy, her unwavering love became the foundation of my endurance.
It was during these difficult times that the initial seeds of change were planted, ultimately resulting in the emergence of something remarkable.

The Journey Unfolds

While undergoing treatment, I experienced a significant change in my outlook. The final chemotherapy session, which happened to fall just days before my wedding, posed a difficult obstacle as my mouth was filled with sores from the intense therapies. In order to accommodate my condition, a priest organized a modified ceremony where I could give my consent without having to speak.
This served as a tribute to the adaptable mindset that would not only shape my personal experience, but also the brand that was still to come.
However, I was able to speak the important words, "Yes, I want." This unexpected response brought tears to everyone's eyes, as they were overcome with deep emotion in that moment.

A Fresh Outlook

In the midst of undergoing various treatments, I started to see life in a new light. When faced with the possibility of death, our perspective on the world can shift dramatically. What may have seemed ordinary before, now becomes genuine and meaningful. This was a valuable lesson I learned from the challenges I faced.
This is the gift that emerges from the darkest corners of adversity and it had a profound impact on me.

The Birth of 4iCe® Elite Boxing Apparel

A year after my initial visit to the hotel, I could feel the difficulties in finding my bearings. The surgeries had left me with speech issues, which only added to the obstacles. Surprisingly, the pandemic forced a temporary halt in my struggles. Being classified as a vulnerable individual, I utilized this time to explore the world of digital marketing, leading to the beginning of a new chapter.
With the pandemic gradually subsiding, a definitive decision was taken. Instead of sticking to the familiar setting of the hotel, I set out on a journey of transformation. Opting to depart from the hotel and explore a new direction, I recognized the need for change.
Dubbed as the 'ill one' by my peers, I possessed an unwavering determination. Harnessing the strength acquired from the boxing ring and fueled by unshakeable belief, I imagined a brand that surpassed narrow-minded labels.
