Today's protagonists: young, at the head of brands that are renewing the fields in which they are already leaders
They came up with Pantamolle for fun. A bet that the Sigalini brothers are winning by churning out ever new ideas.
The fragrance is that common to so many other similar stories that the Italian province often churns out (thank goodness), made by mixing sincerity, creativity, good cheer and vision.
