  • Crucial words for a sustainable future 

    Rimini, Ecomondo 2015. 

    The stand of Gruppo Fiori is an event that cannot be missed at this expo dedicated to circular economies. For the 2015 edition we invited our guests to come and play with us:

    Between a mysterious vowel and a difficult consonant to find, there were also many familiar words, from everyday life, placed in the grid to help or mislead participants...

    300 words, 300 definitions, a maxi-crossword puzzle 10 meters long.

  • Sharing, teamwork, conviviality.

    Everyone knows it as a solitary pastime: our crossword was a convivial game, to be completed together, uniting strengths and ideas. Hidden among the everyday words, precious words were discovered, words that describe virtuous acts. Words and objects that contain human and material stories, that explain why scraps are not useless, and how it is that the sites of Gruppo Fiori are like modern mines: because here metals are reborn, day after day. Playing the game meant having the pleasure of finding "crucial words": those able to be transformed into actions.

    A special thanks goes to the middle and high school students and their teachers who participated in great number.   

    Check out the social networks as well: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
