'Don Arrigo Mussini' kindergarten - Gruppo Concorde

L'importanza delle persone è da sempre tra i cardini centrali della politica del Gruppo Concorde. Per questo, lo scorso 10 maggio è stato inaugurato a Spezzano l'Asilo Don Arrigo Mussini, una struttura di eccellenza per i figli dei collaboratori del Gruppo così come dei locali, che costituisce un esempio di collaborazione fra settore privato e amministrazioni pubbliche.

The importance of people has always been at the heart of Gruppo Concorde policy. For this reason, last May 10, the Don Arrigo Mussini Kindergarten opened in Spezzano, a place of learning par excellence created for the children of Gruppo Concorde employees as well as private individuals, that is a perfect example of the partnership between the private sector and public administration. Children (aged from 9 to 36 months), mainly the children of employees that make up the various companies of the Gruppo Concorde attend the school, as do some of the children of Fiorano, who have taken advantage of an agreement with the company and the Municipality. The kindergarten project was entrusted to architect Marco Lugli, of the Lugli architect's studio in Modena. The structure which has been open since October 1, 2013, is located over an area of 4,500m² in Spezzano, at the crossroads between Via Viazza and Via Canaletto, and close to Villa Vicini, and is characterised by a covered area of 1,000m². All surfaces of the kindergarten are entirely covered by ceramic tiles, every single one of them a lively colour as well as an avant-garde technical solutions (for example self-cleaning cladding mounted on ventilated walls, anti-bacterial floors, under-floor heating system, total water recycling and evolved solutions for safety and energy efficiency). Ceramiche Caesar offered its personal contribution to the outdoor areas using the Absolute collection, Beola Bianca in 60x60cm with 20mm thickness and adhesive installation. The features of resistance and durability typical of Caesar Made in Italy porcelain stoneware and the availability of the Absolute collection in Aextra20 version with 20mm thickness, make this series perfect for indoor and for outdoor floors, the Don Arrigo Mussini kindergarten being absolute proof of this. In fact, Aextra20 is made up of monolithic porcelain stoneware slabs with 20mm thickness in 60x60cm size with anti-slip surface finish. These characteristics, combined with the four different installation methods available and with the broad décor set and trims, make the floor suitable for outdoor application where weather and natural conditions require the use of frost-resistant, anti-slip and durable surfaces. The broad range of colours allows for an appealing aesthetic result.

London's Skyline: how has it changed and how is it going to change again

 “I’ve been walking about London for the last thirty years, and I find something fresh in it every day”.

 

 This is how Walter Besant described London in 1896. A city with a thousand souls, contrasts and stories, always different, changing with the point of view of whoever looks at it. The aphorism is just as true now, for a city whose stylistic contradictions and architectural evolution will make any visitor fall in love with its many surprising perspectives.

 Caesar has played a pioneering role in this trendsetting city, aiming to capture its urban transformations and changes and translate them into cutting edge ceramic products. Since 2007 the Fiorano company has set down its roots in the British capital, first with the Design Center, a meeting point located in Covent Garden; then, in 2015, with the inauguration of its first ceramics showroom in London: the Urban Lab, located in the heart of the Clerkenwell design district, soon became a point of reference for designers and materials.

Since 2000, the company responsible for selecting the colour of the year has been Pantone, the US market leader in colour cataloguing and the inventor of the eponymous colour identification system.
