Alberto Ghelfi

Alberto Ghelfi was born on October 27, 1961, in Mantua, to a father who was a doctor and a mother who was a homemaker. After abandoning his veterinary studies, he decided to embark on the path of entrepreneurship.
In 1993, together with his wife Ida Bombana, who passed away prematurely in 2006, he started the production of medical socks with graduated compression using only the resources available to them.

Sanyleg's expansion

He thus initiates a series of researches in the field of graduated compression stockings and analyzes foreign markets to identify products and countries on which to focus commercial efforts. Participation in international fairs allows him to travel around the world, gaining recognition for his seriousness and determination to achieve his goals.

He invested in qualified personnel to ensure high quality and, with commitment, leads Sanyleg a world leader in the production of Private Label medical socks, with export shares of 90%.
In 2010 he decided to invest in a new production line for graduated compression socks for the sports sector. This choice has made Sanyleg today one of the most important producers of graduated compression socks for sports as well.

Terre dei Ghelfi

In 2021 Alberto Ghelfi decided to embark on a new project. A lover of nature, the sea, and sailing, he invested in the wine tourism sector, choosing the Bolgheri area in Tuscany.

Here, he founded Terre dei Ghelfi, an agricultural company for the production of Bolgheri DOC wine and Bolgheri IGP olive oil, also suitable for hosting a tourist accommodation structure consisting of 7 apartments.. Through a search for the best professionals in the area, he shared his philosophy based on excellence and began this new journey with commitment, humility, and perseverance, supported by trusted individuals who have always believed in him and have followed him in all his projects.
Today, Sanyleg and Terre dei Ghelfi are part of the Arnaud Holding Srl group, entirely owned by Alberto Ghelfi. The name was chosen as a tribute to the memory of his mother because Arnaud was her maiden name.
