Many people think that some children were born with silver spoons in their mouths, but when they leave home I can't even go into their rooms. Of the six of them, five are always traveling around the world. Some of them stay away for months at a time, and when it's time to say good-bye I don't even have the courage to look them in the eyes. They are the ones to tell me not to say anything. Then I hug them and watch them go. MARIACRISTINA GRIBAUDI

This Series is intended to publish the most original and interesting stories of business. In this way we hope to compile and reconstruct the history of those who did and continue doing business, seeking to explore truths that are more or less familiar, forgotten episodes, paradoxical and unique situations that mark the personal affairs of those involved. The Keys of the Bianchi family tells the story of the oldest family of businessmen in the world that, since 1770, have been producing keys and machines for their duplication. Matteo, the forefather, was a locksmith in Cibiana di Cadore during the era of the Republic of Venice, Serenissima, while his descendents continued in the trade through the eras of Napoleon, the Restoration, the Risorgimento, and the Kingdom of Italy. This business continues to thrive even today, having survived the Industrial Revolution, two world wars, and the Italian economic miracle. Such social and political upheaval was bound to impact the world in terms of social conventions and values, including marital and family relations, the invention and introduction of electric lighting into homes, the railway, the telephone and the cinema. Through all of this, the Bianchi family, from generation to generation, not only witnessed and were subjected to the changes triggered by such events, but were also the protagonists of such revolutionary developments. The result is a story that exalts the family's ties to the territory and the contribution made to the evolution of keys, an item of everyday use that Camillo, a pioneer in the concept of duplication, exported worldwide and transformed into a technological device and an object of design. Brimming with sentiment are the pages about the love story with the "pretty Austrian girl" and on Camillo's dignified life journey in the face of adversity. those on Mariacristina's concern for the children and those of overwhelming emotion, and of long-repressed dreams and aspirations, that however Massimo eventually reveals.
