The relationship between Edra and the world of sport is once again strengthened. The company is indeed Official Supplier Casa Italia Collection – FISI in the World Alpine Ski Championship that will take place in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, from February 7th to 21st, 2021. The new format of “Casa Italia Collection – FISI” is born with Cortina 2021 thanks to the collaboration between the FSI (Winter Sport Federation), CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee) and Sport e Salute spa, to show the Italian excellences, from sport to Made in Italy.
Edra was founded in Perignano, Tuscany, in 1987, and is now famous all over the world for the excellent quality of its residential interior design solutions, which are a perfect combination of artistic tradition, technological research, valuable materials and craftsmanship. Over these years of constant roduct development, Edra has managed to build a clear corporate identity based on its vision: combining beauty with personal comfort.
Edra confirms the path undertaken years ago with CONI. Since the first Casa Italia in the Olympics Games, the Sports Organizations have decided to focus on designing and setting up the spaces dedicated to hospitality.
“We recognize in sport the strong values that animate our company for over thirty years. Passion first of all, but also the daily discipline in doing our job and the ability to dare. For this reason, Edra is once again the witness, with its collection, of the excellence that comes from the desire to go further and further, in a healthy global competition”. Monica Mazzei, Vice President of Edra.
Edra shares these values with sport: dedication to research, the desire to always undertake new challenges, the expression of beauty in movement, in the play of forms and in technical perfection.
In the past, the company contributed to some important installations of Casa Italia for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2016, and for the winter ones in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018; it took part in the latest editions of the International BNL of Tennis at the Foro Italico in Rome and in the CSIO, Official Equestrian Competition "Piazza di Siena”, in Rome.
For Casa Italia Collection - FISI in Cortina 2021, Edra Collection furnishes a typical stube, where the project, curated by Claudia Pignatale and Beatrice Bertini, transforms the 5 Torri Restaurant into a place of Italian excellence, celebrated in every detail. On The Rocks sofa, Grinza and Favela armchairs welcome the guests in a lounge area located on the veranda, Margherita armchairs and Gina chairs furnish the stube. Hanging on the walls, the "Italiette Pret’a Porter" and the "Hearts" by Marco Bernardi, together with the work by Massimo Uberti "Spazio Amato" give a unique sense of welcome to the place and represent Italy itself.
“A loved space is something different for each of us, but always a safe haven. In the context of Casa Italia Collection - FISI, it underlines that wherever Casa Italia is in the world, when you enter it, you are at Home, in the place where you are welcomed. Also in this circumstance, the beloved space is Italy itself, where we find ourselves and where we can support our athletes." Claudia Pignatale and Beatrice Bertini.
Italy must be told through these stories, where the works of art and furniture describe the emotions and the beauty of our country.
“Casa Italia Collection - FISI” will officially open on February 7th with a virtual meeting to present the FISI Top athletes, together with FISI President Flavio Roda, CONI President Giovanni Malagò and Sport e Salute President Vito Cozzoli.
