Site down due to hosting provider issue

Today this site has been unavailable due to a fire in the hosting provider's (Aruba) UPS facility that prompted a safety shutdown of servers. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Sandon Utensileria 75th anniversary

On April 10th, 2011, Sandon Utensileria, the company established by my grandfather, Francesco Sandon, and his brother Luigi (later joined by the other two brothers, Felice and Fausto), celebrates its 75th anniversary of uninterrupted activity, even when WWII swept across Milano the warehouse was moved in a hayloft outside the city, and orders were dispatched via sidecars to the workshops that were still operative.
