Ruggero Lorenzi: HANDMADE TALES

Art. maniago, storie fatte a mano


In Maniago the manufacture of the knife is indissoluble from man, his memory and his vision, his nostalgia and his inspirations. This is the central message of ManiAGO - Stories made by hand, published by Lito Immagine by Rodeano, with photographs by Ruggero Lorenzi and texts by Romeo Pignat.
The novelty of this book is the point of view, from the inside, of the Maniago cutlery: through glimpses of lived life, which accompany us in the history and everyday life of ten companies. The images of Ruggero Lorenzi and the texts of Romeo Pignat, give us back the ancient passion and the innovative strength of the entrepreneurs protagonists, the ability to surprise us with the quality of new products. If it is true that the tradition of Maniago has its roots in the Middle Ages, it should also be remembered that the capital of the knife is today more than ever able to reinvent itself, to launch great challenges 4.0. A commitment rewarded with a significant growth in exports and the triumph of "made in Maniago" in the most important international fairs, such as the Blade Show in Atlanta, thanks to futuristic proposals, even realized with aerospace technologies.
