How did that old song go? To make a table you need wood, to make wood you need a tree. And of course - in order to make a table, a table-football table, a guitar or an organ - or even a work of architecture, a kitchen, or even a yacht - you need wood. But wood alone is not enough. Behind each of these objects is the invisible hand of technology, translating ideas into action and reinventing matter. Someone who knows a bit about this is Giancarlo Selci, the great captain of industry, who started out in Pesaro in the sixties and went on to win the trust of the world. Biesse Group, his creation, produces and supplies extraordinary technologies for machining wood, glass, stone and plastic, for a number of leading international brands.
This book tells his story, and in turn, his story communicates the true beauty of Italy.
