After the Second World War, brothers Fabio (born in 1920) and Alessandro (b. 1909) Conci, both engineers, set up a building business. Fabio, who had graduated at Bologna University, had been declared unfit to serve in the army as he suffered from phlebitis.
After getting a degree at Milan Polytechnic University in 1932, Alessandro became a second lieutenant and fought on the African front. Taken prisoner by the British, he went back to Trento at the end of 1946. Together with Fabio, who was already working in the building industry, he established a company called Alessandro e Fabio Conci Costruzioni.
