Enrico Mattei

Enrico Mattei was born on 29 April 1906 in Acqualagna (Pesaro). He attended a technical primary boarding school in Vasto and in 1923 he started work as an errand boy in Conceria Fiore, first as a worker, then assistant chemist and finally as a young twenty-year old, he became head of the laboratory. In the days after the end of the civil war in Italy, he was appointed to fold up Agip's activities but he chose to disregard this instruction in order to guarantee that Italy had a national energy company. He was successful in this with the foundation of Eni in 1953, and was among the first people to nurture a spirit of cross-country ideas and a respect for different cultures. He died on 27 October 1962 when his airplane flying from Catania to Linate crashed in Bascapè (Pavia).
