I wanted to draw on the optimism of the Regatta to create a manifesto that spoke to our human nature and expressed the importance of impressing human touch, respect and empathy in our world. and spontaneity. The imprint on the illy cup that I drew 30 years ago carries a simple message: we leave a positive impression on the world “, explained Matteo Thun.

The CEO of illycaffè, Cristina Scocchia, recalling the “strong common root” that binds the company to the territory just like Barcolana, explained that Thun has chosen “the metaphor of a fingerprint: a flow in which parallel lines flow, which at sometimes they are interrupted, forming a design that recalls the sea currents, capable of transmitting positive emotions and celebrating the importance of connections “.
