Feltrinelli Pietro, born in Gargnano on 5 January 1639, with his brother Lodovico and his sisters Bona, Antonia and Lucia, are the sons of Antonio Feltrinelli, by profession "Boarfino" or boat builder, born in Gargnano in the early 1600s.
Bernardo Feltrinelli, known as "Nonno Bindi", abandons his activity as a fisherman and begins to go home to repair and build boats, together with his son Egidio.
Egidio, who emigrated to the U.S.A. before the war, he returned to Gargnano and began building the first racing motorboats, thanks to the experience gained abroad.
Under the leadership of Egidio, the period from 22 to the end of the 30s was for the shipyard one of the most important in its history, if not the most important of all.
The now famous Feltrinelli shipyard receives the commission from Gabriele d'Annunzio to repair the M.A.S. 96, the anti-submarine motorboat with which he had performed heroic deeds during the war. In addition, the Italian government commissioned from the Feltrinelli 10 rowing lances for the ONB (Opera Nazionale Balilla)
In 1932 Egidio exhibited at the "Campionaria" in Milan, alongside the most important names in Italian shipbuilding.
The Feltrinelli shipyard is set on fire by the fascist squads due to the family's belonging to the Communist Party
Fausto Feltrinelli, returned to Gargnano after years of work around the world, takes over the entire shipyard from his family and relaunches it, being the first to introduce nautical services such as storage, launching and hauling, assistance
