«We did it,» began Diego Montrone, president of Galdus, when speaking with Sabina Belli, CEO of Pomellato and Melania Rizzoli, education, training and employment assessor for the region of Lombardy. Sabina Belli shared her enthusiasm and during her speech, she talked about Milan as a hub for sectors with great economic strength, about Italy being the only country in the world to combine creativity and technology, and about sustainability as a now crucial ethical value: «The challenge we are all facing is that of creating a jewel in a sustainable and responsible way. The expertise of our artisans is essential to an approach that focuses on traceability and the protection of the environment along the gold-and-jewelry production chain. This is our vision of jewelry and it’s what we want to pass on to the young talent participating in the Pomellato Virtuosi program, in partnership with Galdus, a unique and exclusive opportunity for experimentation and creativity.» The program will continue with the addition of further topics about colored stones and management. In fact, Pomellato boasts unique expertise in the production of colored stones, which are processed through extremely innovative cutting and embedding techniques. The company seriously intends to pursue sustainable techniques, launching a new protocol specifically dedicated to colored gems.
