Two veterans of the Italian editorial and fashion system joined Eco-Age Italia: Massimo Leonardelli as Public Relations and Cristina Pezzini as Partnerships. Valentina Fragomeni joined the company as Head of Events.

Alessio P. Lucattelli and Martina Lucattelli, the brother and sister duo behind San Papiers - Biere de l'Air, kindly supplied their beautiful venue Gesto for the evening alongside the duo's eco-sustainable beer. The launch event also announced San Papiers as Eco-Age’s latest client. In keeping with the Eco-Age ethos, the mission of San Papiers is to use water extracted directly from the humidity of the air, through a machine powered by renewable energies, creating, the world's first totally eco-sustainable beer.

“When I had the idea for Eco-Age I had just graduated from university and looked at England as the country to start this adventure," said Nicola. "I am very excited to now start the expansions of our offices globally, starting from the country I am from.”

“We are so excited to open Eco-Age Italia – and to bring home all the expertise acquired throughout the years," added Livia. "We look forward to start working in our native country more and more as so much is happening there in the sustainability space.”
