Francesco's passion for criminal law began as a young boy, with firm beliefs rooted in justice and protection of the weak. As a child, he was brought up on the principle of family in a region of Italy where crime was a normal part of everyday life; though he did not get involved in criminal activity himself, he bared witness to many of his classmates becoming involved in crimes of various nature.

One day, a classmate of Francesco was accused of a serious criminal offence due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and so became involved in a criminal court case as a result of this. Francesco knew that his classmate was innocent yet was being accused of something that he had no part in, and it was at that moment Francesco knew that his future was meant to be spent defending the weak and mistaken from injustices brought forth by the criminal justice system.
