February 1988

Toto Navarra’s entrepreneurial ideas, matured through his vast life experiences prompted him to open his first company called ‘La Puligienica’ , dedicated to gardening and cleaning services.

The  dedication and sacrifice shown by Totò and his wife Gaetana strengthened the  company and allowed it to start producing its first results.

The company was awarded their first public tenders, and ‘La Puligienica’ of Totò Navarra continued to grow, thanks also to the support and input from son Salvatore, and Maria Costa.

Clients showed their satisfaction and the number of worksites continued to grow, pushing the regional boundaries, to the point where the registration as sole proprietorship was no longer sufficient.

July 2004

The number of office workers reached more than 15 and worksite operators more than 600. The numbers continued to climb, and instead of registration of the company under  sole proprietorship, they decided that it was necessary to become a ‘private limited company’. ‘La Puligienica S.R.L.’ was  guided by the  entrepreneurial ‘know how’ of Toto Navarra and forward thinking leadership of his son Salvatore.

June 2009

The company became an increasingly fierce competitor for larger companies operating within the sector, on a national level. Its increased growth led to the development of a larger range of services offered by the company,  whilst providing the same excellent quality of services. PFE’s clients continued to demonstrate complete satisfaction and as a result become more faithful to the company.  

The time had come to transform the Puligienica s.r.l.  into PFE S.p.A, a joint stock company.


After more than 10 years from the first cleaning services provided to a building condominium in Caltanissetta, Totò Navarra and his family have succeeded in creating one of the most well-known companies in the sector of cleaning and facility management on a national level.
