The ammunition company founded in 1876 now operates as Fiocchi Munizioni SpA. Still headquartered in Lecco, it is owned wholly by the umbrella entity, Giulio Fiocchi Holding. I was told about seventy Fiocchi family members have shares in the holding company. Fiocchi of America is one of the international divisions wholly owned by Fiocchi Munizioni. Current executives are cousins and fourth generation descendants of Giulio and Giacomo. I visited the factory this past November. Alessandra Selva, a brilliant assistant marketing manager, greeted me at the receptionist’s desk. An array of massive trophies lined the shelf behind the reception area. Signed posters of world champion competitors lined the walls. I received my security badge and was introduced to three executives. Pietro Fiocchi, president of Fiocchi of America, radiates energy and gives the impression you’d get shocked if you touched him. Cousin, Stefano, is president and CEO of Fiocchi Munizoni SpA. Pino Fiocchi, father of Carlo of FOA, had been president of Fiocchi Munizioni for over twenty years commencing in the 1960’s. I did not meet him but learned that, although eighty-five years old, he continues to work as an engineering consultant. Cousin Costantino, an elegant man with upright bearing, is technical director of Fiocchi Munizioni. He took me on a tour of the facilities and, in flawless English, began a conversation talking about fly fishing in Colorado.
