It was a warm and sunny day in July when Goretti opened the company doors to host the experimental Luxury Packaging workshop organized in partnership with l’altra fedora Festival. After these two days, the finished products were displayed on our premises: 11 luxury packaging prototypes.
Why are we telling you this again? Because for some of the participants, the experience at Goretti continues: meet selected by the company to continue their work with a paid internship: Caterina and Gianpiero.
