Aiming for the future thanks to a past brimming with success, passion, experience and the will to grow. As Fabio and Massimo Algisi, owners and directors of Officine Donini, look back on their company’s artisanal spirit and history, they find it easy to look forward with great expectations.
They are aware of the importance of having inherited a craft, experiencing the warm, and sometimes convivial implications of living through a time when working together also meant swapping trade stories before a salami sandwich, an almost rare Mantuan virtue.
But they are also crystal clear about where they are going, day after day, with their continuous investment in men and means.
“We have taken on board our entire family’s history, right from the early days when our grandfather founded the business, through to the establishment of our modern production facility. We do this without even thinking, but we use all that experience, that passion, the commitment that we have learnt and made our own, in all our precision work, our production choices, and the expertise we invest from the idea to the finished product. We couldn’t have grown or strived to move forward without a solid foundation.”
