Antonio Pitagora

Antonio Pitagora

Antonio Pitagora is a young traveller. By profession, he's a fashion designer. Travelling is vital for his work since his adventures around the world provide inspiration for his creations. Rendering door knockers, 'revamping' them, and then transferring them onto innovative fabrics mixed with traditional fabrics. A great idea! An idea much admired (especially abroad). But still not performing optimally within the Italian distribution channel. How can we launch Pitagora's project in his native country? In the land in which he absorbed all the values that go by the name, Made in Italy?

Virgilio and Patrizia Contadini run what we can only describe as a Renaissance atelier. The techniques adopted, and the traditions associated with them, go back hundreds of years. Gradually, however, this skills-base was disappearing. Virgilio and Patrizia are specialists in the art of gold-leaf gilding. Indeed, they can turn anything a customer wishes into gold! On a day to day basis, Virgilio and Patrizia adopt techniques of the distant past. But what about the future of their business and the long term view?

Fismen

Fismen

The first accordion ever made came from a small town in the Marche region. Accordions are still being produced, worldwide, every day. Fismen is a manufacturer that focusses its activities on a single product, the Steirische accordion. This is a folk music model played in Tyrol, Germany and Slovenia. Here, Fismen is most definitely the leading concern of this kind. The people at Fisman have most successfully exploited a great tradition. However, they have also considered the prospect of growth and innovation. Tasks as ambitious as they are vitally necessary! So, how can we help them become maestros of tomorrow's business world?
