Different realities that share, support and promote values such as ethic, sustainability and beauty.

The diversity of the Italian territories is among the most diverse in the world. For this reason, each area should be trated specifically, with respect and emphasising local peculiarities.

Social boinds and trades, passed down in the years creating an intimate relationship with their territory, which is reflected in the traditions that need to be sheltered and valued.

We promote culture, ethic and design that must bound together. And we believe that knowledge is the key factor to design following the slow philosophy of the respect for the present and the future.



Lucia Rosin is a professional with more than 25 years of experience in the world of fashion. She collected the passion for travelling, photography and gardening and poured everything in her job. Sustainability drives all of her choices. An objective that she always tried to pursue in every project from the start of her career.

In 2004 she founded MEIDEA, a qualified group of professionals that delivers its know-how in the fashion and textile industry throughout the world.

July 2016 saw the launch of the new “Meidea Atelier” in the historic town centre of Castelfranco Veneto.   An onld industrial building transformed into an operational and exhibiting space.

Their primary objective, in addition to the counselling for many companies, is to create a development and research space, by means of artistic installations, events and conventions.

“My professional life in these years has always put me in front of crossroads. Your career, following traditional tracks, or taking an alternative route, with a greater freedom in your choices but at the same time with a much greater effort to carry them forward.“




In 2008, upon the initiative of the Lago family and the dearest friends and colleagues of Giorgio, the Associazione Amici di Giorgio Lago is created.

A private, non-profit association with the sole purpose of promoting initiatives to remember the cultural and civil work of Giorgio. Later on, the association establishes the Centro Studi Interdipartimentale Giorgio Lago at the University of Padova.

The project is based on the idea of providing his rich cultural heritage to the community.

Strongly endorsed by the Deputy Vice Chancellor Giuseppe Zaccaria  which shared with Lago ideals and battles. The centre has been run by Prof. Gianni Riccamboni and it’s currently directed by Prof.ssa Patrizia Messina. The aim is to track the evolution of the northeast, with a particular focus on the involvement of young students.
