In the early 50s, Stefano started his barbering legacy in a small village known as Vadipordio, Calabria, Italy. Stefano travelled to a place in Italy called Genoa, located in the Northen part of Italy.
In 1962 Stefano migrated to Australia by ship. Stefano worked as a barber in Victoria Street, North Melbourne owned by another fellow Italian. Not long after, the boss unfortunately passed away. Stefano was stuck with no job, so he decided to open up his own Barberia.
In 1964 Stefano's Barberia was opened, right across the road from the famous, bustling, Don Camillo's café.
