How everything began
Founding of the company in a home office

Massimiliano Cava comes from Sarno, in the province of Salerno. He studied Electrical Engineering in Neapel. Always looking for challenges, he was drawn to Braunschweig through the Erasmus Program while his studies without speaking a word of German. In Braunschweig he studied Electrical Engineering for two years and got his degree in Neapel 1998. His first job in Lippstadt did not last long. He resigned after a few months with the reasoning:”The passion at work was missing.” At a friends place in Vaihingen he shared a 13 m² small apartment. He worked at Magneti Marelli and later at Smart.

2005 he eventually founded DA VINCI ENGINEERING.
