Two young talents in discussion. This is the content behind the whole project launched by BKT and DAZN “Growing Together”, the TV format which, episode by episode, provides a unique portrait of Italian provinces, those unexpected cradles of enormous energy and brilliant ideas. Because, for BKT, discussion, like sharing, is the only way to grow.
In the fourth episode, shot in the wonderful “Rocca del Cidneo”, Brescia’s medieval castle in north Italy, two pure talents, each of them outstanding in their chosen field, get to meet: 18-year old Andrea Papetti, a central defender from the local football team and 29-years old Alessandro Taini, co-founder of Test1, one of the most brilliant Italian start-ups.
A simple and humble sponge is the precious object which Test1 has patented in order to clean the seas of oily substances – that huge polluting scourge which can currently only be dealt with by using chemical substances which are equally damaging for marine flora and fauna.
One of the founders of the start-up is Alessandro Taini: “We revisited the project of an historic Italian chemist, who is now in his 80s and who had proposed a solution to clean the canals of Venice by creating a sponge. Having refined the original idea, we have now patented the first sponge in the world that can absorb oils and hydrocarbons, and which can be reused up to 200 times. We want to expand worldwide. We are starting with Italian ports and from there we hope to work increasingly at international level.”
The ambition is to grow, but to grow by sharing with others, by continuous discussion, and by showing determination.
BKT supports all this because a company can never be detached and distant from common life, where the challenge is like testing a new tire and sharing is the energy which helps you grow (together) with your team, partners, as well as with all the fans of Serie BKT.
