Grazie alla determinazione ed al gusto estetico di mia madre, uniti all'estro creativo ed alla curiosità intellettuale di mio padre, sul finire degli anni Cinquanta nasce l'azienda Morandi. Dapprima a Castelvetro piacentino ed a Cattoloca in estate, poi a Crema con l' immediato successo legato alla qualited alla forza espressiva dei pezzi proposti, sia di antica che di vecchia e recente manifattura.
Thanks to the determination and aesthetic taste of my mother, together with the creative talent and intellectual curiosity of my father, the Morandi firm was founded in the Fifties in Castelvetro Piacentino and in Cattolica, then in Crema, with prompt success thanks to the quality and the great expressive power of the offered pieces of antique, old and new manifacture.
Alessandro and Andrea are in bed, I've just smoked the last damned cigarette and I'm going on switching nervously on the remote-control: Maurizio Costanzo, an old football match, a noisy television film, a black and white movie....oof.

What a nice colour after all those years, maybe it looks nicer to me because I'm fond of it. I still remember when I bought it from my mother paying it with all my savings at that time. It cost me like my car; I was eighteen, twenty five year has gone, I've changed nine cars, but He's still there, nicer than ever. We've passed twentyfive years together: in winter here in Castelvetro and in summer in Cattolica, then in Crema.
Do you remember when I rescued you from the flood? It was the 1974 : the rivers Conca and Ventena overflowed their banks, and you were the first one to be brought to safety to the second floor. I've been a good boy, I've never sold you, in spite of all the favourable offers. I hear something from the bed-room:" Dad, do you come to sleep, didn't you ?"- says Alessandro-, "I'm coming!". I go to sleep now, because tomorrow morning I've to bustle about downstairs in the shop to sell the other carpets; I hope they will find an owner as loving as me.
