The donation ceremony was held on Saturday 20 July in the Dolceacqua castle at the presence of the Mayor Fulvio Gazzola.

In Dolceacqua and Bordighera, from 29 April to 18 August 2019, three paintings by Claude Monet, painted by him at Dolceacqua, Bordighera and Roquebrune, Monaco, are on display.

Corporate social responsibility or if you prefer "give back", i.e., the act of giving back to the community, to the territory where you do business, part of what you get from it.

It is in this spirit that F.lli Razeto & Casareto, a manufacturer of handles and locks for the nautical and naval sectors, following an invitation from the PerMare Group, the main sponsor of the event, joined the project promoted by Fulvio Gazzola, Mayor of the Municipality of Dolceacqua, entitled "Monet, l'emozione del ritorno" (Monet, the excitement of the return) - an exhibition open from 29 April to 18 August 2019 - which displays three works by Claude Monet in the places where they were painted by him in 1884: Dolceacqua and Bordighera.

A cultural journey combined with the history of the towns of Dolceacqua and Bordighera, where two works can be admired, painted by the father of Impressionism, both lent by the Musée Marmottan in Paris: Vallée de Sasso. Effet de soleil ("Valley of Sasso. Effect of the sun") exhibited in Bordighera, and Le Château de Dolceacqua ("The Castle of Dolceacqua") exhibited in the Doria Castle of Dolceaqua. Along with the latter, there will also be Monaco, vu de Roquebrune ("Monaco, view of Roquebrune"), the third important painting on display, loaned by the private collection of H.S.H. Prince Albert of Monaco, who will be taking part in the inauguration.

To support this innovative project, which aims at promoting the area through art, F.lli Razeto & Casareto, a company from Sori, in partnership with Vigo Mosaici, from Campo Ligure, Genoa, decided to donate to the town of Imperia one of its handles, the first of the “Radici” line, specially "remixed" by the Masters of Vigo Mosaici with an ancient technique, which originated in the region and which still today is of great appeal. Le Château de Dolceacqua – as the handle has been named as a tribute to Monet’s painting - has been enhanced and made unique like a real piece of art, using a mosaic covering in "seminato genovese", a special kind of grit, a poor material representing the waste from the working of local stones and marbles, used by the Genoese at the beginning of the last century to create floors, which have today become precious. A handle will thus be created which represents the best of Made in Liguria technology and creativity, able to emphasize the strong bond that both companies have with their surrounding district, paying tribute to both Claude Monet and the Doria family which, in addition to making Genoa famous, built the Castle of Dolceacqua, now the venue of the exhibition.

This handle is the first of the Radici line created by Vigo Mosaici specifically for F.lli Razeto e Casareto as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Sori company, a major event to be celebrated in 2020.

Returning to "Monet, the excitement of the return", please remember that the exhibition will be open until 14 June, every day from 10.30 am to 6 pm, and from 15 June to 18 August, every day from 10.30 am to 7.30 pm (opening hours for both locations).
