A Man's First Attempts

As Cafiero wrote, Ferraro used to assemble reports on his "first attempts" in each sport activity that was in some way related to the sea. His infinite love for the sea and for those activities in which he is centre stage certainly motivated him, but in order to achieve his targets he needed certain qualities and characteristics. And Ferraro had at least two gifts that were out of the ordinary. A particular sensitivity towards personality traits, which allowed him to understand and make himself understood and limitless energy, which he used to carry out enormous amounts of work at impressive speed. This does not only refer to work related to his profession with Cressi and Technisub but to all work required to take part in meetings, hold conferences, think of new activities, resolve problems and mediate between opposing demands.
