«There is only one true luxury, and that’s one of human relations»

Antoine de Saint- Exupéry

How Simposio is born, or even better, how a Simposio can born! It’s a simple question, the answer of which could be long and complex, starting from the ancient Greek history till its current meaning. However, the question should be another: where does Simposio come from?

The way how I want to tell our story is focused on a concept: it’s not something generally speaking, but something of important because of people.

As a matter of fact, people do the difference, people carry out companies, people build cities, they plan strategies, they lead nations and they rule the fields.

Behind each company of Simposio we find people whose passion in their job is the reason of their life.

Those people that you will see around our table represent the Italian artisanal excellence. They’re not the only ones, of course. There are many excellent companies in Italy, a country with a lot of qualified raw materials, impeccable professionals, master craftsmen.

It took a long time, two thirds of my professional life, to find those companies that today are part of this team and the difference between them and all the others it’s always the same one: people.
