La Rivista del Colore celebrated its 50th birthday and took stock of the next 50 years of industrial coating together with industry experts in the relevant fields of activity: manufacturing, economics, design, education and surface treatment.

It was a day of celebration to reflect on the past, present and future of industrial coatings, and to become more aware of the concept of sustainability. Supported by first-hand experience, entrepreneurs and professionals shared their individual visions and encounters with those present.

What has changed over the years in the world of industrial coatings?

Arsonsisi tells the tale of its 100 years in the volume dedicated to the coating of metal and plastic in La Rivista del Colore’s “Storia della verniciatura industriale in Italia” book.

The answer can be found in the book “Storia della verniciatura industriale in Italia” (History of Industrial Coatings in Italy).

La Rivista del Colore traces its long journey in the pages of its magazines. They scan time and narrate the story of industrial coating from the 1960s to the present day, enriched by the tales of those companies that have been the protagonists of these years of change.

And among these entrepreneurial organisations, with the company celebrating 100 years of business last year, Arsonsisi’s contribution could not go amiss.
