Here are the stories of some of the projects developed by Coranto.
Yes, stories. Because behind every project there are events, vicissitudes, relations with people, problems to be addressed and resolved.
At the end of a project, nothing is as before: those who took care of the project and those who requested it are changed; all are enriched with experiences and skills.
Relations between people: this is our way to mean projects.
