Italian and English text

This discourse reconstructs more than eight decades of work in Florence by the faucet factory "Signorini", which left a strong and significant impression on the industrial history and culture of the city. The volume is organized into three parts. L’evoluzione di un’impresa storica fiorentina (Evolution of an Historical Florentine Company) by Angelo Nesti outlines the evolution of society from 1923 to today; La fabbrica ricordata (Remembering the Factory) edited by Sandro Nannucci recounts the memories of five people who worked at the Signorini factory - Giovanna Betti, Mauro Del Conte, Paolo Falsetti, Alessandro Luciani, and Raffaello Pesci; finally there is La fabbrica immaginata (The portrait of a factory), full of striking black and white photographs by Massimo D’Amato.
