Gianfranco was always interested and inspired by art, design and photography. In recent years he sponsored various international activities of some of the most talented artists of his hometown Merano (Italy).

The meeting with Prince Albert II of Monaco, made him aware about how important it is that everyone dedicates a part of the proper life sharing wealth and knowledge with the less fortunate.

He is currently working on a humanitarian project with the aim of bringing energy and internet access to remote areas in Africa. The idea is to use 20 ft and 40 ft containers which are transformed into mini mobile power stations equipped with: solar panels, wind turbine, satellite connection, and a capable battery to store the energy produced in excess to make it available when needed.
