We are a group of young artisans and creatives. In 2017 we created an inclusive and sustainable social lab, trying to improve our own lives and those of others. We wanted to spend our time and skills doing what we loved and creating a positive social, environmental, and economic impact. We tried to change the world, starting from ourselves. Today, we employ more than ten people. We have created not only a social enterprise but a lab of good practices.
To create our products, we use craftsmanship and as many recycled materials as possible. We believe that giving new life to an object is a revolutionary, creative, and necessary act. We recover fabrics, leather, bicycles, and wood thanks to donations from companies, citizens, and public bodies.
We believe that every company must put social impact before profit. We do it every day, favoring the social and work inclusion of foreign, vulnerable, and marginalized people, creating a welcoming and protected environment where they can build a new future.
When you walk into Parallelo you do not feel like you are setting foot in a company, but in the home of a family made up of colleagues, customers, and neighbors. We are proud to work in a space seized from organized crime: we want to play a role in rewriting its history by generating fertile ties with locals and new energies in the territory.
Travelers and locals, far and near, young and not so young. Visionary, passionate, creative, extraordinary people. From each latitude, from each parallel.
