20 months of construction site

We would like to celebrate with You to the “closing” of our Construction Site, that lasted for 20 months, activated for the siesmic adaptation of our buildings.
With this short video, we want to share those moments of suffering, hard work and sacrifice, which however led to a real rebirth of our departments, in addition to the expansion of a new logistic building:
FM Logistic: assembly department and shipping warehouse.

Our 2017 Christmas
13 Dec

Our 2017 Christmas

Christmas is a moment during which Families gather and celebrate a new rebirth together. Even this year we would like to donate the same moments to those families who unfortunately do not have this great Fortune.

In collaboration with the Association “Un Cuore per la Vita (A Heart for Life)”, we decided to contribute to a project involving three families in the area hit by a serious earthquake last year in Central-Italy.

We called this project “A dairy for Nadia and Luciano”, and we would like to contribute to Luciano’s dream of being able to give a future to his Sons, so that they don’t have to flee from a deeply wounded and deserted territory.

As you can see from the photo gallery, we have personally gone to verify the situation that, needless to say, is tragic.
A sheep breeder of Avendita, a small village near Cascia, with 400 sheeps and an unusable dairy, along with his own house.
Three families who strongly want to stay in their territory, despite the majority of the population has fled away, and a great dream: to start again from a new beginning.

We will give you updates about this project, which still needs some funds to be finally realized, but we plan to carry out within the next spring.

What better gift for this Christmas than to give back the Willingness and the Strength to Dream again to these Families?

A heartfelt wish to all of you and your families!

and Christmas Day will last throughout the Year"

Christmas 2016 : Shaken hearts who don’t give up
30 Nov

Christmas 2016 : Shaken hearts who don’t give up

A Company of Norcia, in difficulty because of the earthquake that doesn’t give up…
An Association of the Emilia region, that intervenes in case of disasters from 2012, strongly committed to help the people of central Italy, …
We, who know what it means to live the earthquake, fears, uncertainties, loss of references….

Among these “Shaken Hearts” grows the collaboration for this Christmas 2016 that will certainly continue in the future.
A little snowflake that will help to find even just a smile in such a difficult period.

We report here a thought of Donatella, one of the great women engaged in the Association “a Heart for Life,” which struck us very well, and explains the feelings that leave behind the Sisma:

The scent of memories, the smell of dust”
How the ruins’ dust of a house smell like?
This morning I suggest a simple little experiment:
put in a container a picture, a notebook, a pen, a dress, a piece of wood (should represent the furniture of your home), an outlet, a kitchen small appliance no longer functioning, a tile, and a couple of bricks.
With a meat mallet beat, mince and grind these objects, then expose your container out in the open to sunlight, rain, wind, moisture of the night and if you can,
you should go 20 minutes each day, through your meat mallet to crush your things without moving them.
After about two months, with the hands, move the ruins of your things, as if you used a bulldozer, it will raise a dust …
“The dust of your memories”….
I went through ruined villages, there was so much wind last night, and the firefighters bulldozers, moving the ruins of a house which fell on a road, raised a cloud of dust, which penetrate in the sealed cockpit of my car.
I was still, I breathed this powder, I breathed the life of this house and the memories of its inhabitants.
I got out of my car, I crumpled and got illuminated by photoelectric firefighters’ light and flashing lights of emergency vehicles, I cried, because I breathed the dust of memories and now I know their smell and taste …
