Second World War

When World War II broke out Erminio’s son, Stefano, had just graduated from law school with honors presenting a thesis in Civil Procedure Law to Professor Francesco Carnelutti. Stefano was called to arms and left for eastern Africa, where he became a prisoner of war in British hands, transferred to India, first in Bangalore and later in Yol.
The activity of the law firm, slowed down by the war, was interrupted in 1943, when the Giovanardi family had to leave Milan under bombing. The activity started again in 1945, when the war ended, still in the office in Via dei Bossi no. 3.
Stefano was freed form imprisonment and returned from India in December 1946, registered in the lawyers Bar and started the activity with his father Erminio and lawyer Bianchi in 1947.
