I still believe in it!

“I have been working with my family in our company, Parchettificio Garbelotto for more than 30 years, and there’s much that I hold in my heart and mind. I have always been a great patriot and my Italy, no matter what is said, is a great country. Living in the beauty of our scenic places, stimulated by the great passion for work that I strongly feel in all the entrepreneurs with whom I am confronted, inspired by the art, which is the undisputed queen of our country, I cannot be, but happy. ”

“The ‘Made in Italy’, this added value that no other country in the world has, is a great treasure but at the same time it is not protected, incredibly appreciated abroad, but not by us and by our institutions. We have in our DNA this amazing attitude in creating beauty and in doing research; we have an open mind, we know how to suffer, renew ourselves, create fashions, tread the catwalks and much, much more. Over the years I have seen many companies in our sector suffer and close and this has hurt me. It’s not fair. It’s not good. I would like to shout it out: you don’t have to close shops and then buy the same articles in shopping centres, you don’t have to close the firms and then buy imported goods, considering only the price, without paying attention to quality and health. ”

“Institutions, colleagues, people all: let us aid Italy, let us support companies by buying Italian, let us give work to our children here with our families, and not send them abroad. It was not easy, in the least, for me and my family to continue producing all our products here in Italy. Nevertheless, no matter how hard and difficult this choice was, I am happy and proud of it when, for example, a client of mine from abroad faces a day by plane to come and visit us, and bringing us a gift from his country, he tells us: “We are honoured to have you as a supplier, thank you Garbelotto family.” I still believe in it: long live Italy! Long live the ‘Made in Italy!’ “
