Most recently though, beside the wealth made in the Udinese club, is their involvement in real estate. And in 2008 the woodworking business was sold off only to devote more time into the football clubs.
When the Udinese club was purchased back in 1986 Gino was all in with making a complete commitment to the football club. Under his control the club was helped through tough financial times. And within only three seasons the club would rise form Serie B all the way to Championship League. The experienced gained at Udinese over all these years truly payed off.
