From our Twitter channel, the 02/19/2015 live tweeting on the presentation event of Francesco Morace’s book “Crescita Felice”

Crescita Felice di Francesco MOrace: live tweeting by ermespontiIt was February 20th, 2009, when Professor Morace launched “Il Senso dell’Italia”, which gave rise to the adventure of Italian Rennaissance and to books about a company’s own talent, which also involved us of ermesponti.

Exactly six years later, February 19th, 2015 – in the same Hall of Honor of the Triennale in Milan – Francesco Morace launches a message of optimism and hope for our country just from the title of his new book:

“Crescita Felice”
Percorsi di futuro civile

In our own way, we would celebrate this event with an open sharing of the concepts that Francesco Morace will explain, through our Twitter channel @ermesponti with the hashtag #CrescitaFelice.

It’ll be a pleasure to dedicate a complete live tweeting to the presentation of the book and the ensuing debate, from 6 pm up to the end of the meeting.

See you online on @ermesponti, following the hashtag #CrescitaFelice!

[Video] Happy growth: Francesco Morace’s economic recipe in his new book. Save the date for presentation: Milano Triennale, Feb 19th.

We all want  our economy to grow, and do so happily.

If the suggestion of “happy decrease” never quite convinced you, if you’re looking for a sustainable path for economic development, if you think that the beautiful and the “well done” still make sense in this little crazy world of ours… this book, written by our friend Francesco Morace, is probably the right choice for you.

On rather: for us :-)

See you at the Milano Triennale, Thursday, February 19, 2015 for the presentation of the book “Growing Happy” by Francesco Morace – Egea editions.

Bespoke interiors by ermesponti: little gallery of creations.

The ermesponti method is all about keeping together the work of the mind (project) and the work of the hand (realization).

Likewise, the people involved in this process are united in mutual respect, as it was in Renaissance workshops.

These team of ours develop a project from the very first draft to the turnkey delivery, without undesired gaps in between.

Well, today we’d like to leave you a little gallery creations, realised with this approach.

Actually it’s a not a reasoned selection: among the many ermesponti references, they’re just a few, but should give you the idea ;-)

Santoni Italian shoemakers: the beauty of craftsmanship which binds us together.

Reading the book “Costruttori di bellezza”, which we recently mentioned, we noticed that many things about crafting feel familiar, no matter the industry you’re talking to.Schermata 02-2457055 alle 09.49.10

Santoni is an artisan shoe company, extraordinary in many ways, not least its reality of 500 employees and worlwide exports.

ermesponti is something entirely different, even though design and craftmanship apply in the everyday work of our teams, in order to create unique interiors – be it commercial or residential.

Yet… let us mention some parts we read in the book that we feel particularly familiar with:

P. 51
Leisure time of a younger Andrea Santoni, founder of the company:

“From six year-old onwards, once I’d finish working at Bruè, I also worked in small workshops to round up. And I would work there till around midnight, then go home, always walking. For a short time, when I was 25, I’ve also helped my parents to work on the fields.”

P. 72
Technological developments in relation to craft skills:

“Once, everything was handmade. Today, in the shoe business there are high-tech machines, but the manual conveyor is still pushed like in the past: with the hands. For some respect, in Santoni we worklike we did sixty years ago. “

P. 99
On how to deal with the actual economic crisis:

“Do not change the way you work, for the sake of the economic crisis. We have to continue investing even more on the know-how and on quality. A positive attitude that proved to be successful.’

That’s what Giuseppe Santoni replied to a journalist who asked him what was the best idea to face the global economic crisis began in 2008.

It’s a pleasure for us to get to know better the  Santoni  by reading these pages: it’s an example that inspires our work.

…And how many excellences such as theirs we have in Italy?
