On 25th October, Arsonsisi participated at the day of industrial coatings organised by the editorial staff of La Rivista del Colore. The celebration was to mark the magazine’s 50th anniversary and took place in the stunning Sala del Cenacolo in Milan’s Leonardo da Vinci Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia.
La Rivista del Colore celebrated its 50th birthday and took stock of the next 50 years of industrial coating together with industry experts in the relevant fields of activity: manufacturing, economics, design, education and surface treatment.
It was a day of celebration to reflect on the past, present and future of industrial coatings, and to become more aware of the concept of sustainability. Supported by first-hand experience, entrepreneurs and professionals shared their individual visions and encounters with those present.
What has changed over the years in the world of industrial coatings?
The answer can be found in the book “Storia della verniciatura industriale in Italia” (History of Industrial Coatings in Italy).
La Rivista del Colore traces its long journey in the pages of its magazines. They scan time and narrate the story of industrial coating from the 1960s to the present day, enriched by the tales of those companies that have been the protagonists of these years of change.
And among these entrepreneurial organisations, with the company celebrating 100 years of business last year, Arsonsisi’s contribution could not go amiss.
Presented for the first time during the event, the book is being published in two volumes dedicated to the metal and plastic, and wood industries. They have been written by Danilo O. Malavolti – President of Anver – and Gianni Giardina – former owner of Giardina Officine Aeromeccaniche – respectively.
In the afternoon, Arsonsisi’s representatives, alongside those of other manufacturing companies for installations, machinery, systems, and raw materials, powder coatings and liquid coatings, as well as spokespeople from the academic world, met at a round table to discuss the topics of sustainability, research, innovation and circular economy. Together, they examined the future of industrial coatings.
The day ended with a guided tour of the Toti submarine, recently restored thanks to the efforts of Danilo O. Malavolti, Founder of La Rivista del Colore, and the contribution of a number of companies in the industry.
