The authorities took care of him and sent him to a hospice. Grew in a hostile environment; No one loved him, because there was something exceptional in him: he lacked the smell completely. He was, however, endowed with an extraordinary sense of smell. At twenty, after working in tanning, he got work at the Bandini perfume's house, who taught him to distill essences.
