The core of every masterpiece?
of raw material.
Antonio Stradivari would go to the red pine forest to personally choose the wood he used to make his celebrated instruments. Michelangelo went to the marble quarries in Carrara to select each block of stone for his magnificent sculptures. The great artists of the past, like today’s great fashion designers and chefs, know that the basis of all masterpieces is the selection of the right raw material.
And this is also true of Listone Giordano, it always has been. Wood is a natural material, one of the world’s most beautiful creations, but also one of its most complex products. You need experience. Take oak, for example. One word, but rife with a myriad of differences. Differences that cannot be hidden. It would be like saying wine is wine, that they are all the same. And the same holds true for food, for fabrics and precious stones. And – fortunately - we all know about the vast range of quality offered there as well. Guaranteed origins, historic legacy, what man does with any given product can make a huge difference. Listone Giordano’s commitment to quality comes from far away. It comes from Fontaines, in the Burgundy region of France, from the ages old forests where the wood industry has roots that go back a thousand years.
