Encounter an ancient art, recognise it by its scent
Metropolitan rhythms, speed, lights and sounds. But wandering among the narrow streets of the old quarter, everything becomes more calm and collected. Travelling to Milan one happens to encounter secluded and quiet spaces. Laboratories where for centuries the art of cabinetmaking has been cultivated at its highest levels. You first notice it in the scent of beeswax with which the cabinetmaker caresses the wood until it gleams. In the subtle and penetrating aromas of ebony and other precious woods that are skilfully inlaid with each other. Sensory atmospheres that tell the stories of masterpieces of Italian art and craftsmanship. Travel notes enclosed in Colonia Ebano.
