Il Tavolo di Piero
Piero’s Table is a place where we share information, research papers, comments, initiatives…. sitting virtually around the table: the table is in our meeting room, it is the ‘physicality’ that hosts our meetings, encounters, choices and important events of the company, our professional labors.
Founder Riccardo Giorgio Zuffo relates that ‘Piero Buscone is the carpenter who built the table. In my childhood memories, his workshop, in a small village in the Apennines (Brallo di Pregola), represented a magical place where trees first became planks and then chests, tables, cupboards, doors, windows for a rural world that was still alive, but gradually disappearing. Many years later, we built this table together, with a patchwork of ten different woods from the Apennines, some new and some old, the fruit of our common history, our mutual affection, our intelligences’.
‘Il Tavolo di Piero’ is also a watercolor given to Riccardo by Ryo Nakanishi, a Japanese painter, and a friend, for whom the first exhibition in Italy, ‘Nature and Change’, was held in our spaces in 1997. A first meeting between art and management.
Then, “Il Tavolo di Piero” became a Management Consulting, Human Resources and Art Promotion Periodical(Milan Court Registration nr. 104 24/02/2003; Copyright © Telema International srl).
