CREATING VALUE FOR THE TERRITORY AT 360 DEGREES

Our 3500 sq. m. headquarters is located in the inland Marche region, at the foot of the Sibillini Mountains, or Monti Azzurri, as Feel Blue puts it, outside the major industrial centers, in an area that is defined as suburban

These lands of ours are not suburbs in the city sense of the word. They are productive suburbs: few businesses, few jobs, few services, which in the long run (but not so much) means depopulation. If you then add that here, in 2016, there was a devastating earthquake, you understand that an alarming scenario opens up of whole families leaving. We chose to establish our headquarters here not only to create jobs, but to show that working here is possible and desirable. And we hope that others will follow our example. We know, however, that this is not enough. That is why we are committed to supporting local social, sports and cultural initiatives.

2017

We support as an official sponsor the children's sports activities of the S.S. Vigor Tre Torri Society of Sarnano

2018

We support the Macerata Opera Festival side event program by bringing cultural events for children to Sarnano

2019

We were the sole sponsor of the August 18, 2019 Stabat Mater concert at St. Nikolaj Park in Loro Piceno. In the picturesque location at the foot of the castle, the Chamber Orchestra, Soprano Alessia Cingolani and Contralto Edy Bigotto, conducted by Maestro Licio Cernetti, performed Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto in A Major for Strings and basso continuo and Giovan Battista Pergolesi's Stabat Mater

2020

We inaugurated the Feel Blue Tailoring Centrer, the workshop created with our contribution by Please Sound Onlus, in the Tamil Nadu region of India. The center has 16 sewing machines and enables many women to leave the grueling work in the fields to take up a more dignified and remunerative trade. That of sewing, in fact, is a great need in these areas where, due to extreme poverty, clothes are often adapted to be reused by more people. With this project we broaden our commitment to social sustainability to an international dimension, with the aim of making our contribution to the labor emancipation of women around the world.

Why Feel Blue supports Stefano Monti's short film Third Half
2021

We supported in an important artistic project: "Terzo Tempo," a short film by director Stefano Monti produced by the Marche company YUK! film with the support of Marche Film Commission - Fondazione Marche Cultura. It is a story inspired by an event that really happened in the town of Sarnano in 1944: a tale that, starting from a particular episode, touches universal chords by enhancing the territory and its experience. Also in 2021, we supported the project L'Onda che Verrà, a show with Sergio Múñiz, directed by Francesco Facciolli, written four hands by performer and director and produced by Vincenzo Fazio and Arturo Morano for Art Show. The show also received the support of UNESCO, which included it as part of the Decade of Marine Sciences for Sustainable Development, a global initiative promoted by all member states of the United Nations to involve the entire civil society in the search for solutions to protect the oceans and, in general, for a more sustainable future.

Why Feel Blue supports FuoriMano Festival
2022

We supported FuoriMano, a cultural festival and literary prize organized in Sarnano by APS Circolo di Piazza Alta from July 23-30, 2022. The theme they propose is particularly close to our hearts: the province, understood not only as a geographical dimension, but above all as an existential one. Around this topic, the organizers offer appointments with writers, filmmakers, artists, musicians and have launched a literary contest from which an anthology of short stories was born in which one of our contributions is also included, a reflection on what it means to do business off the beaten path. Also in 2022, we also gave our support to Ginesio Fest, an Actor's Art Festival organized in San Ginesio, where our office is also located. Ginesio Fest is a very prestigious initiative dedicated to theater in all its forms. We chose to contribute to one of the creative workshops for the little ones: "Naughty Hats," a hands-on workshop of creative decoration of hats created with recycled materials. Of course, the hats were taken care of by us.

Why Feel Blue supports Stefano Monti's short film "Third Time"

2021

Abbiamo sostenuto in un importante progetto artistico: “Terzo Tempo”, un cortometraggio del regista Stefano Monti prodotto dalla società marchigiana YUK! film con il sostegno di Marche Film Commission – Fondazione Marche Cultura. Si tratta di una storia ispirata a un fatto realmente accaduto nel Comune di Sarnano nel 1944: un racconto che, partendo da un episodio particolare, tocca corde universali valorizzando il territorio e il suo vissuto. Sempre nel 2021 abbiamo supportato il progetto L’Onda che Verrà, uno spettacolo con Sergio Múñiz, regia di Francesco Facciolli, scritto a quattro mani da interprete e regista e prodotto da Vincenzo Fazio e Arturo Morano per Art Show. Lo spettacolo ha ricevuto anche il supporto di UNESCO che lo ha inserito nell’ambito del Decennio delle Scienze del Mare per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile, un’iniziativa globale promossa da tutti gli Stati membri delle Nazioni Unite per coinvolgere l’intera società civile nella ricerca di soluzioni per la tutela degli oceani e, in generale, per un futuro più sostenibile.

2022

Abbiamo supportato FuoriMano, un Festival culturale e un premio letterario organizzato a Sarnano dall’APS Circolo di Piazza Alta dal 23 al 30 luglio 2022. Il tema che propongono ci sta particolarmente a cuore: la provincia, intesa non solo come dimensione geografica, ma soprattutto esistenziale. Intorno a questo argomento, gli organizzatori propongono appuntamenti con scrittori, cineasti, artisti, musicisti e hanno indetto un concorso letterario da cui è nata un’antologia di racconti in cui è inserito anche un nostro contributo, una riflessione su cosa significhi fare impresa fuori mano. Sempre nel 2022, abbiamo dato il nostro sostegno anche Ginesio Fest, Festival dell’Arte dell’Attore organizzato a San Ginesio, dove si trova anche la nostra sede. Il Ginesio Fest è un’iniziativa di grandissimo prestigio dedicata al teatro in ogni sua forma. Noi abbiamo scelto di contribuire a uno dei laboratori creativi per i più piccoli: “Cappelli birichini”, un laboratorio manuale di decorazione creativa di cappellini creati con materiale di recupero. Naturalmente, ai cappelli abbiamo pensato noi.
