Carlo D'Orta (Florence, 1955), traveler and photographer, specialized at the Libera Accademia delle Belle Arti RUFA (Rome University of Fine Arts) and a subsequent Master in Photography at the IED in Milan, a path that brought him closer to a metaphysical photographic vision, tending towards abstraction.
He prefers the architecture, focusing on the decontextualization of the details and on the deformations produced by the glares and windows reflections. It exploits particular perspectives of shooting compressing the depth through a strong zoom that crushes the plane and gives compositions of abstract geometries. The reminiscence of cubism and constructivism appears with deep references to Malevic, Mondrian and Rothko.

The story of Riccardo Zannetti is daughter of a great passion in the field of watchmaking born at the turn of the century, when Carmine Zannetti, master goldsmith and passionate about fine mechanics, gave life to that extraordinary adventure of technical perfection and design that is the essence of Zannetti's creations today. He will succeed Mario Zannetti, full professor of design and international artist. His geometric lines still influence daily production, in particular his passion for complex mechanical mechanisms. Thus, Riccardo Zannetti inherited an important cultural commitment to which he skillfully combined the talent and perfection of a great great artist, as he is. The historic laboratory has been transformed into a state-of-art design studio, where we continue to cultivate a tradition that began 500 years ago, with the aim of spreading Italian creativity all over the world.
On the 11th of November 2016 we established the Association Terra di Amatrice Onlus. We all have our roots that sink deeply into the territory of the Amatrician basin and we all had our homes destroyed or seriously damaged by the two earthquakes. Our relatives, friends, acquaintances who did not want or could leave Amatrice are the people with whom we have shared our whole life. They have remained and guard the territory with dignity and firmness. With the pride of people used to sacrifice themselves and roll up their sleeves and not needlessly shed tears. They do it for themselves and they do it for us, for us all. Because Amatrice, one of the beautiful villages of our tormented Italy, does not become a ghost town and can come back to life by returning to being the beautiful first Amatrice.
The Salt Club stems from the great passion of Paolo Santoro towards the Sale, which he loves to treat as "Living Element", generated with the contribution of three magical and powerful elements of nature: the "Moon", which with its energy raises the sea to then let it enter gently through a myriad of channels in the pools or salting tanks, the "Sun" which with its warm energy allows the water of the sea to slowly evaporate and finally the "wind" that must never be intense, to give way to water to be cradled with a light movement. The Salt Club will not only sell the Fleur de Sel rather than the Sale Grosso, but will also tell the story of the people of each Salina, that this incredible product of the sea cultivates.
