Il Casone at Sana 2008
Casone's pietra serena arrives at "Sana con gusto"
Il Casone will participate at the Sana convention from September 11-14, 2008 in the city of Bologna. This year’s edition marks Sana’s 20th anniversary and will celebrate with a variety of initiatives throughout the city in addition to the convention that will focus on healthy living.
Food which is healthy and rich in nutrients, a home which combines simple lines, nature and beauty; these are the messages which emerge in the historic themes of Sana. A focus is put on areas that promote a new type of wellbeing and new way of living.
Il Casone is attentive to the themes of sustainable environments while ensuring a high quality of living. They will provide smooth pietra serena for a 240 square meter internal space called the “San con Gusto”. This highly visible interactive space is the pulsating heart of the convention. It is in this area that companies and associations will collaborate to create a dynamic space: one that includes culinary aspects with intellectual debates. The overriding theme is healthy food in a healthy environment which is also the underlying philosophy of the convention.
The flooring in pietra serena has been laid with alternating natural green lawn. It is of fundamental importance to utilize natural materials in this creation to create an almost “kitchen theater” environment and one that harks back to the De Lucchi project created last year. The furnishings utilized along with the accessories to complete the space are all ecologically sustainable.
Pietra Serena, thanks to Il Casone, is once again a principal player in a unique event that underscores the importance of the quality of life. The message that the company puts forward is clear: attention must be taken to the selection of materials upon the basis of health and comfort for those who will utilize them!
Promoting the use of one material like pietra serena that comes from a distinct and honored tradition, yet has all of the ecological benefits of a modern material, Il Casone is able promote the creation of spaces that are not only livable but functional, beautiful and welcoming. These spaces are able to express not only esthetic qualities, but also social values that all lead to a high quality product that provides global comforts within the architectural project.
