The new laboratory, which will give a second chance to Evolution, Dalla Corte espresso machine classic model, has been inaugurated inside Bollate Penitentiary (Milan-Italy). A project launched together with the cooperative Bee.4 Altre Menti, already involved in finding job opportunities for inmates.
Manual labour jobs increase self-esteem, teach self-discipline, order and patience. This idea has a bigger value if addressed to people living in penitentiary. A job will help them to spend their time by learning new skills and be ready to be part of the society again.
Dalla Corte, leading producer of espresso machines based in Baranzate (Milan), believes in the possibility to give everyone a second chance. For this reason, decided to cooperate with Bee.4 Altre Menti.
“I met Francesco Bernasconi sales manager at Bee.4 Altre Menti, and Second Chance Project executive manager, and when I realized that also our company could have given a contribution, I joined in with enthusiasm,” states Paolo Dalla Corte, CEO of the company together with his sister Elsa. Our restyled machine will have a great human content, not just a secondhand product inspected with professionalism.”
With the Second Chance Project started a working activity including check, spare parts replacement with lead free components, and final test of the espresso machine Evolution. “A machine that, launched ten years ago on the market, has still today great performances and surpasses 90% of the espresso machines in the coffee shops” highlights Paolo Dalla Corte. “In this way, we give the opportunity to many baristas to buy and work with a performing machine. Moreover, we recover a machine, updating it to current regulations, safeguarding the environment.”
Paolo Dalla Corte personally selected the inmates taking part to the project. In the first phase, they will work under the supervision of a professional Dalla Corte team, helping them to restyle our Evolution marked with the logo “Second Chance Project” by Dalla Corte.
