Giulio Mancini was born in Pesaro on April 22, 1969. In 1999, just after graduating in mechanical engineering from the University of Bologna, he became involved – through Marco Gaudenzi’s design firm – in a project for shotguns cases for Benelli Armi, which fired his enthusiasm for industrial design. From 1999 to 2001, he worked with design firm Acanto, creating trade fair and showroom stands and fittings for such companies as Alluflon-Moneta, Benelli, and SCM Group. As part of consultancy services for industrial product designs, he has established an important relationship with GTTrading, one of Europe’s most important companies in the industry of hi-fis for cars and the high-end domestic market, for brands such as ‘Steg’, ‘Aloia’, and ‘Boston Acoustics’. In 2002 he began to work with graphic designer Nicola Sancisi, with whom he established the studio Nettodesign in Pesaro.
