“ The 10 spectacular Olympic Victories in 2014 are the crowning achievement, incredible and almost unexpected, of forty years’ work. They pay homage to my family and to the team that has accompanied me up to this point “ says Alessandro Dal Bello
“I was seventeen when I emigrate to Sten am Rhein , in Switzerland. I remember even now that there was no suitcase in our house; we had to ask another family for one. It was made of cardboard and I used string to tie up my few possessions on it “.
“ It was the very first time I had ever left Asolo and I had absolutely no idea of what to expect, so the journey seemed incredibly long to me. I could only speak the local Asolo dialect and I did not know a single word of German. The fear and insecurity of youth combined with the enthusiasm for the opportunity which emigration represented “
Five years of hard work as an employee of Henke followed. In Stein Am Rhein Alessandro met Giovannina, the woman who would become his wife and the mother of his four children
“My years in Switzerland were the best, and I still think of them with fondness and nostalgia. In Switzerland, I found my independence, I made my friends. I found love and I found my way”
Upon returning to Italy with his new, young, family, Alessandro was lucky enough to meet persons that would help him in his working career “ trusted advisers and true friends. A handshake was all that was needed and the deal ware made. Their support was the decisive factor in growth of the company “.
The 70s were years of innovation, design and modernity; they were the years of plastic and the economic boom. There was a great desire to get things done, to put ourselves to the test. Alessandro realized that the time had come to demonstrate the talent and boot building skills he possessed and finally the first Dal Bello ski boot was injected in 1974 !
During the 80’s, the high quality standards and the exceptional fit of Dalbello ski boots gave rise to its presence in select international markets. It was, however, only at the beginning of the 90’s that the company began to achieve strong commercial success in the most important international export markets: North America, Germany, and Austria. From there, Dalbello developed a homogeneous network of distributors in all the other countries of the world; from Japan to Australia and throughout the rest of Europe. From one million of ski boots sold in the early 80s the Dalbello success has never stop counting today 13 milions pais of ski boots sold worldwide in 40 years of activities
“ Fourty years of Dal Bello ski boots. The future I envisage for my company is rich of challenges and new hits “ says Mr.Dalbello
