The business of the Giunta family began in Monforte San Giorgio at the beginning of the last century, and has involved four generations so far.
The founder, Mr Giovanni Giunta, had won the tender called by the municipality of Monforte, whose contract specifications provided that he had to provide a postal courier service pulled by three horses.
After Mr. Giovanni Giunta’s death, the business passed into the hands of his son Carmelo, who in 1927 bought the first bus that replaced the postal courier pulled by horses. ‘Don Carmelo’ received soon the help of his son Giovanni, who already at the age of 14 had began to drive the bus with a lot of straw bags in his seat to see the road.
At the end of the war, in 1945, the company ‘Giunta Carmelo’ received the grant for the first authorization for the Monforte – Messina line and vice versa; new and more modern buses were purchased at that time.
In 1956 ‘La Società di fatto’ was founded by Giunta Carmelo and his son Giovanni, and other concessions were obtained such as Milazzo – Messina via motorway with 34 daily trips and Milazzo – Catania (Fontanarossa Airport) for the period from April to September each year.
On the 15th of February 1978, the ‘Giuntabus’ s.r.l. was established, with registered office in Monforte San Giorgio. On the 20th of January 1980 Don Carmelo passes away with great pain of those who had appreciated his qualities including generosity and kindness. In 2003, at the age of 80, Giovanni Giunta died. His participation fees will pass to his daughters Maria Giunta and Pina Giunta.
In addition to offering a public transport service characterized by efficiency and courtesy, the Giunta Company is the largest private source of work in the Montfort area: today the company has 20 employees, it comprises 30 buses, 15 of which are regular buses and 7 are coaches.
