Listone Giordano

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.

Cultura

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.
