There was the entrepreneur who proposed to change the aspect of his valley (at his own expense); there was the society which permitted potential clients to observe the upholstery work, to meet the tailors and to watch the cutting process of the rolls of fabric; there was the entrepreneur who gave priority to ecological compatibility by adopting a specific Sustainability Charter; there was another who bottled water from a source in a valley in Piedmont with all the care with which he would treat a precious gift and so looking after the surrounding environment; and another who was inspired by the principle of Less is More, a principle which involves giving more in value, products and services while reducing consumption, waste and negative impact on the environment.
