Can we talk about 100% Made in Italy products when it comes to your company, then? And how about your company’s bond with its native region?

Yes, one could say Made in Italy, but we really like the term Made in Veneto most. Indeed we pursue an ideal of Italian quality and beauty and we export this around the world. Do you want one example? We are leaders in Russia’s market. Our clients know that their homes are actually enriched by true Italian quality. About our region, Veneto, I’d say our bond with it is everything. In one of our factories in Marcon we opened a company kindergarten, in order to enable our employees to work without the struggle of finding who will take care of their children while they’re working. We also contributed financially to the restoration of some of Venice’s monuments such as the Napoleonic columns of Piazza San Marco.

What’s the secret of your success?
First of all: determination. Secondly, we managed to keep our money into our company. We kept investing even during hard times. Last but not least, our dedication to our job, the actual amount of time we spend working for our common goals. Personally, my working day starts at 7.30 AM and it seldom ends before 8 PM.

Is there something you’d like to say to those young Italians willing to create and invest notwithstanding these times of economical crisis?
Young people have what it takes to seize new opportunities and make the best of them, however few these opportunities may be given these age. Back in the past, being determined, passionate and willing to do sacrifices for our careers was enough, but today the road to success is rockier and trickier, one needs to complete their personal qualities with studies, being more than competent.

You became competent also thanks to the University we attended together, Bocconi. What does this mean to you?
Bocconi shaped my head in a way that enables me to always find a solution, even when everyone’s convinced that there isn’t a solution to a certain problem. It educated me to make the best of everything, which stimulated my ambition. .

The healthy kind of ambition combined with values and a fertile territory gave birth to a successful company – our Colorificio San Marco is one excellent example of Italian quality business, isn’t it?

I wish Pietro all the best, he’s an amazing person and a capable businessman.

Una vita ad immaginare e costruire un futuro che non è mai stato così chiaro e limpido. Fatto di emozioni inesauribili alla vista dei colori che questo mio Paese sa ogni giorno regalarmi. Ho viaggiato, senza mai stancarmi, per poi fermarmi dinanzi al blu del mio Mediterraneo. Lì capire che qualcosa di grande e profondo, intenso e meraviglioso, stava accadendomi; e che non mi sarei mai più fermato. Tuffandomi in quel mare sapevo che non avrei più potuto tornare indietro. Al contempo sapevo che i brividi che mi percorrevano sarebbero stati i vostri. E che insieme avremmo corso sempre più veloce verso qualcosa di puro, autentico, genuino, felice. Qualcosa che con orgoglio chiamo Idressitalian.
