Ferragamo, who is the son of Ferrucio Ferragamo, was joined at the party by his wife, Christina. [Ferruccio became the owner of the Borro Estate in 1993, where, in previous years, he had hunted and vacationed with his family and friends. From that time on major work was undertaken in the medieval hamlet which was completely restored for the purpose of enhancing the history, traditions and natural surroundings; special attention was paid to the vineyards. Today, the entire Estate is managed by Salvatore and his sister, Vittoria, who is responsible for the Borro’s Garden and special projects.]

Salvatore is the first of six children of Ferruccio Ferragamo, twin of James, in Florence, and is the CEO of Il Borro. Before assuming responsibility for the family agri-leisure business as AD, Salvatore worked in the international division of KPMG Peat Marwick in Florence. He has worked nationally and internationally in the audit, finance and advisory departments of KPMG. From 1990, he completed an internship at Salvatore Ferragamo SpA in the marketing and production departments where he planned the company’s marketing strategies in Italy and France. He then decided to continue his professional training with an MBA at New York University’s Stern School of Business, specializing in finance and international trade. In 1993 he joined his father Ferruccio Ferragamo in the long and difficult restoration of the ancient medieval village of Il Borro and in the development of the wine business. His love for the Tuscan countryside and great wines led him, step by step, to the creation of what Il Borro is today. In 2012, Il Borro became part of Castles Relay and Salvatore was named ambassador with the responsibility of representing the excellence and prestige of the organization.
