Paolo Tsimbirlis is another one of Raptim’s golden oldies. At Raptim’s Rome office since 1978, he has a wealth of experience in our business. An astounding 37 years’ worth of stories is stacked away in his memory. When Paolo started working at Raptim in 1978, there were no computers at the office. All business was done by telex, which was a network of teleprinters – similar to a telephone network – that could send text-based messages. “It was the ancient way of getting in touch and having a chat,” Paolo reminisces.
