For the first time in 60 years, Carvico S.p.A. hosted the children from the Maria Bambina nursery school for a day of exploration, discovery, and a glimpse into the future.

This initiative was a collaboration between two local entities in Carvico's community.

On May 2, 2023, for the first time in its 60-year history, Carvico welcomed 80 children from the Maria Bambina nursery school in Carvico. It was an afternoon filled with discovery, experimentation, and play. The day began with a warm welcome between Sister Angelica and the President of the Group, Laura Colnaghi Calissoni. Following a brief introductory speech and a heartfelt appeal for the children’s entrepreneurship and future, there was an exchange of floral gifts to mark the start of the day. With the help of educators, the children were divided into subgroups to provide a more immersive and personalized experience during the three stages of the day.

First Stage – A Bit of History…
in Cartoons Who is Carvico? – A brief introduction, presented in a cartoon style, about the history and values of the company, narrated by the bunny character James and his… colleagues! It was a colorful and captivating video that engaged the children’s senses and sparked their curiosity about a world that, while geographically close, seemed vast, unexplored, and unknown to them.

Second Stage – Weaving and Performance
It was finally time to delve into Carvico’s production process with Ilaria from the Research and Development (R&D) department, who guided the children through a world of multicolored fabrics. They witnessed the operation of a loom. Along with some historical information and a small quiz, a green button was pressed suddenly, setting off a real-time magical demonstration. To conclude this stage, a small experiment compared hydrophilic and hydrophobic fabrics: a few drops of water sprayed here and there provided both fun and awareness of the difference between two crucial fabric performances in the world of Carvico textiles.

Third Stage – Finishing, Printing, and Quality Testing Touch to Believe!
The senses were stimulated by the results of fabric processing and printing, as Beatrice from the Research & Development department explained key concepts behind other essential phases of Carvico’s production process in clear and simple terms. With the help of laboratory machines in the R&D department, the children witnessed a demonstration of fabric calendering, followed by a demonstration of how the chlorine resistance test machine works. Finally, there was a transfer printing of the Carvico logo combined with that of the Maria Bambina school, marking the final seal of this twinning day.

At the end of the tour, a delightful moment of sharing concluded this extraordinary afternoon, filled with inspiration, smiles, and sweet conversations, always looking toward the future.
