The trolleys that Tucano has donated to the Pink is Good testimonial will add an extra touch of pink to the Veronesi Foundation event working against breast cancer.

Pink is Good is a Veronesi Foundation project working to support the fight against breast cancer and to promote prevention so that women can be diagnosed in the early stages and be better prepared to fight and defeat the disease.
On Sunday, 22 October, there will be a “pink run” that will start from the Piazza Castello at 10:30 a.m. The participants will be contributing to the funding of 10 scholarships for researchers specializing in breast cancer treatment.
Tucano has donated 130 trolleys to the core event, a testimonial involving the women who have fought against the disease and won their personal battles.
Tucano enthusiastically supports this project and considers both research and prevention essential for women’s health.

Rainbow, 1000 colours for the 2014 Fuorisalone.

Rainbow, 1000 colours for the 2014 Fuorisalone.

From 8th to 12th April, as every year, Milan returns to the stage of international design with Milan Design Week. Naturally, the Salone del Mobile returns with its crackling Fuorisalone fringe events.
After last year’s Lifexperience, we’re ready to paint the new 2014 Fuorisalone in a thousand colours with Tucano Rainbow. Our Showroom on Piazza Cadorna will, in fact, be painted with various design themes.
We will be showing our fresh new, colourful covers. But that’s not all: this is also the place to discover some of the secrets of our designers when creating Tucano’s collections.

As well as considering all the features that bags and cases for digital devices should have, our design office has the goal of making each product a truly innovative design solution that is also – why not? – surprising. For example, our Eyescase, which works together with a free app for the iPhone and Samsung’s Android devices, which dresses the smartphone not only on the outside, but “inside” too.
We will also be presenting Ancilia for the first time ever: an innovative cover that reduces electromagnetic waves by our bodies by up to 99%! And then there’s the wild creativity of our Delikatessen collection, which is increasing once again, which lets you customise your smartphone in unexpected ways.
Want to know more? We’re inviting you all to our inaugural cocktail on the evening of Tuesday, 8th of April to discover the myriad colours of these new products. We’ll be open all week to Friday 12th.

Milan is already getting ready for Expo 2015.

Milan is already getting ready for Expo 2015.

There’s already a sense of anticipation here in Milan for the world that’s coming to Universal Expo 2015, with work already under way to make the city even more beautiful.
Expo 2015 will be one of the most important international events. The history of the exposition is long, beginning in London, 1851, and moving from city to city each time. Next year, it will be held in Milan.
Every Expo is dedicated to a common theme that visitors will interact with through an innovative, experimental experience, across the various pavilions of the participating nations.
Naturally, an Expo taking place in Italy had to be based around the theme of the importance of food: “Feeding the planet, energy for life.” Each country will show the best of its cuisine, and more: we’re already salivating with the prospect!

Although the official location of Expo 2015, in the new exhibition area in Rho-Pero, the entire city is also getting a makeover for the occasion.
We can see it from our own premises in front of Castello Sforzesco: in fact, we’re in one of the “hottest” Expo areas.The construction of Expo Gate, the new Expo info point is just a few steps from our offices, and is already almost completed.

It consists of two identical, mirrored structures of metal and glass that rise on the natural view from the Duomo, through Via Dante, to the castle. Their design recalls the “caselli” (toll gates) that still stand at the many gates of the city(e.g. Porta Garibaldi, Porta Vittoria, Porta Volta, etc.) and thus form a kind of “gateway” to the coming Expo.
Within, the Expo Gate will be host, from time to time, to images, information panels and projections that will alternate and which will be there right from the start of the Expo, on the 1st of May, 2015.

Furthermore, we can’t wait for the pedestrianisation of Piazza Castello: the many vehicles that currently pass through will disappear, leaving an area for living, welcoming both Milanese and the many visitors who will be arriving from all over the world. And all this is happening right outside our own offices.
Wherever you are, if you’re thinking of a flying visit to Milan for the Expo, come and see us at 19, Piazza Castello: we’ll be glad to see you!
