From 1957… just a breath in the history of the world, a gust of wind which doesn’t appear to leave traces behind. And yet the wind, even the weakest one, changes its surroundings: it molds the desert dunes, bends the trees, spreads pollen…
Sixty years in a man’s existence represent a lifetime.
They are bunches of memories; they are present and past joys and sorrows; they are satisfactions and sacrifices. They are people who supported us, who keep living on our side, or who are up there now looking down at us, or people who joined our existence only at some point on this journey but who have succeeded in no time to fill our little universe with sense and tenderness, like children and grandchildren.
The story of a commercial company may not seem interesting, but if that company started “working” sixty years ago, and behind it there are long-term efforts of a single, entire family, then everything unveils completely different: work is not just work, growth in turnover is not a mere number and everything becomes full of meaning.
The past becomes history. The present becomes a reality, the future is a project.
Maybe someone may think that this is just one of many companies, established by a single person and carried out by brothers, children, grandchildren, the kind of which there are thousands in Italy and the world, and that’s true. For the same reason, it doesn’t mean this company has less value than others and its history isn’t worth telling.
After all, every journey begins with a single step and the sea is made up of billions of drops: small things make great the world.
