This evening we were pleased to inaugurate what promises to be a wonderful tradition: the Gatei Dinner. That is the first free culinary banquet of craftsmen, artists and barlafüs. Artisans and artists are all very talented friends from Brianza, a small region in the north east of Milan, a region where barlafüs defines more or less an incompetent person (a name so for the three of us). These craftsmen have always been our masters, in the old sense of the term, being an example, particularly on moral grounds for an always lively dedication to job despite the march of years. Are people who have "made" the history of Italian and international design, contributing as suppliers to the success of the most important brands, with humility, courage, creativity and imagination. The Gatei Dinner is our way to thank them for their willingness to welcome us into their workshops for the realization of our prototypes and study models.
