In collaboration with local organisations, such as Plastic Bank, the waste will be collected and reintroduced into the global manufacturing supply chain, thus encouraging the development of a local circular economy.

TITICI and Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli joined this project motivated by their sensitivity towards the serious problem of plastic litter. Plastic pollution is unfortunately present in all the seas of the world, it closely affects the activities of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli and the Italian group Trerè Innovation, owner of the TITICI brand. For years Trerè Innovation has been promoting a sustainable production system that respects the seas and the environment.

Coronavirus emergency: Trerè Innovation donates 8000 masks to the Asola community

Coronavirus emergency: Trerè Innovation donates 8000 masks to the Asola community

Local community is the lifeblood a company. The Trerè Innovation Group has grown over the years to take on its current international dimension, but we have remained proud of our roots in the Asola (Mantua) area and have always identified contributing to improving the lives of the area’s citizens as our mission. At this time of emergency, the company has chosen to do our bit by taking very special initiatives. The manufacturing department has been converted – in record time – to be able to produce washable and reusable fabric face masks. The first 8000 were donated to the Asola community, to help fight the spread of Covid-19.

The masks come in adult and kids sizes and were delivered by CEO Marco Redini to Asola’s Civil Protection Service, which was then able to distribute them to inhabitants. Trerè Innovation’s experience and nature led us to create a high-quality product. It’s made using breathable, hypoallergenic 3D fabric, which can be washed at 60° to remove pathogens.

Redini: “Our mask is the product of our local community’s creativity and professionalism”

“Masks have become a part of daily life,” said CEO Redini. “They’re an indispensable way of limiting the spread of coronavirus but also for regaining confidence in our relations with those around us.” In just three weeks, we have been able to design, test and produce a completely new product. Our mask is the product of the skill and professionalism of everyone working at Trerè Innovation, from designers to manufacturing engineers, who mostly come from Asola and the neighbouring areas. If you look at it that way, the mask represents the creativity of the area and we couldn’t but donate the first models produced to the community that brought them to life.”

Local charitable organisations receive support from the Redini family

At times when the pandemic was at its worst, the Trerè Innovation Group rolled out other initiatives for tackling the emergency. The company contributed to the purchase of a ventilator for the hospital in Asola, equipment that has helped treat Covid-19 patients and save human lives. Alongside the “Il Ponte della solidarietà” (or Solidarity Bridge) Foundation, the Redini family donated funds to the Asola Care Home, as well as 400 masks to the Shalom Community in Palazzolo sull’Oglio (Brescia). They provided funds for local charity projects and supported missionary initiatives in Malawi, Ethiopia, Burundi, Ghana and Cambodia, in communities struck by the coronavirus. The support given totalled around 60,000 euros.
