Giuseppe Borsalino – nicknamed "u siur Pipen" (Master Joe) in the local dialect – was born in Italy in 1834. After apprenticing in his hometown, Alessandria, and refining his craft over some seven years, he qualified as Master Hatter and opened his first workshop in a courtyard in Via Schiavina in Alessandria. This was the beginning of a great success story that infused humanity with immense satisfaction, becoming the stuff of legend.
