The tradition that links Listone Giordano to the culture of wood is established in the forests of Burgundy, in France, where the best raw materials have been selected for many years. The forestry management in this area embraces an integrated cycle of more than 180 years: every tree is registered, numbered and monitored in order to guarantee a gradual increase in the woodland heritage.
Listone Giordano long ago began moving in the direction of the responsible use of natural resources, checking the origins of the raw materials and ensuring traceability throughout the entire production process. This approach continues today, with a renewed committee on an international level, applying these principles also to tropical woods in order to guarantee eco-sustainable products.
It was 1984 when Prof. Guglielmo Giordano ingeniously conceived a hardwood flooring of groundbreaking characteristics that improved the limits of traditional hardwood flooring and inaugurated a new era. Stability, precision, reliability, beauty, long-life and respect for the environment are still the keywords to this huge success. The technological heart of Listone Giordano lies in the special multilayer birch support, which, together with the transversal incisions and micrometric joints make the hardwood floor stable over time and keep it from ever warping.
A unique product characterized by values ranging from the selecting of the finest raw materials directly in the forest to the special sawing techniques, the marine adhesives, the ecological finish treatments, the precision machining, the sophisticated selection criteria, and the most advanced frontiers of the new shapes and surfaces of contemporary design.
The spirit of research behind Listone Giordano led to the creation in the year 2000 of the Guglielmo Giordano Foundation. Dedicated to the memory of Guglielmo Giordano, the foundation was established with the specific aim of promoting work in the same fields in which the renowned Italian wood expert carried out his scientific research and cultural interests.
Therefore the Foundation promotes historical and technological studies and research on wood, and at the same time interacting with the art world, supporting seminars, conventions, large exhibitions, events and publications.
The Foundation aims at creating an ambitious research program on the use of wood within three specific fields of study: the environment, focusing on wood as a raw material and forestry resource to be protected in relation to the environment, the region and the landscape; science and technology, focusing on the study of wooden structures, especially in architecture; and the arts, researching the use of wood in the visual arts, such as painting and design.
Thanks to its commitment, the Giordano Foundation has had the honor to sponsor and be actively involved in the organization of some of the most important exhibitions devoted to Italian Renaissance masters such as Michelangelo and Raphael.
