When the war finished he started a small workshop, and within a few years he was designing and building innovative vacuum tube devices. He founded the Davoli Krundaal company in Parma in 1957.
At the start of the 1960s Davoli started making instrument amplifiers and P.A. systems, which rapidly caught on in Italy, soon most of Italian bands and many foreign bands touring in Italy were playing and singing through Davoli amplification systems.
