Natale Gaetano Rampinini was born in Gorla Maggiore (Varese), then moved to Fino Mornasco, where he took over the management of the local post station with stabling delivery.
First horse-drawn carriages left from the stations of Fino Mornasco and Como San Giovanni, whereas passengers were brought to the villas on the Lake Como and to Brianza.
In 1906 the company “Coaches and Carriages Rampinini Natale” was established and in those years the job consisted of goods and passengers transportation.
From 1945, Natale’s son, Ernesto, enhanced the development and the success of the company, following his father’s steps, marked by coaches and carriages, and he better defined the different branches.
The first bus was bought to replace the bench equipped lorries, used for trips till then. From the ‘50s the third generation took over.
In 1965 the first goods warehouse was built and storage agreements were signed.
