The Lagalene universe is made up of unique men and women, perfect in their imperfection, special. We are looking for the well-being of the body, of course, but above all of the mind. Those who embrace the Lagalene universe will never abandon it. It is not just a product line, it is a lifestyle, an acquired awareness. Strength, well-being, beauty…These are the cornerstones of our products and our philosophy. Today we are meeting Esther Piazzolla, our client and investor, who tells us why she decided to believe in the Lagalene project.
Esther let’s get to know each other better, what do you do on a daily basis? Your passions?
I lived in Holland for many years where I contributed to the opening of several Italian restaurants.
In one of these I decided to invest personally and I gained direct contact with a highly sought after and culturally differentiated clientele.
I recently embarked on an executive consulting path with a strong focus on internationality and foreign countries, from Holland to Albania, countries that resemble each other only for the growth of gross domestic product, but which, as opposites attract me immeasurably .
Likewise, my children, so beautiful and different from each other, exert a great influence on me in their development and in supporting their growth path, as well as in the organization of my daily life.
But my heart in the attic is divided between them, my partner and my absolute four-legged loves. “
How did you become aware of the Lagalene reality?
“I would say simply from an advertisement. I was struck by some of the elements reported, the ear of corn in particular. I looked up online and discovered that it was an innovative start-up in the world of cosmetics, which is inflated by products of the highest quality but with very little attention to the sustainability and naturalness of raw materials. At the same time, the message of the product was positive, brilliant, it did not have an exaggeratedly green dimension and as a consumer of vegan products, I always wonder why some products necessarily have to cover such an unattractive image … “
What is the importance of a sustainable economy, green impact and mental and physical well-being for you?
“The economy today cannot fail to be. It is not a choice, but a direction we are forced to aim for.
Unregulated capitalism is on the downward stretch. The environment, nature, and respect for the other beings who live on our planet, will be the economic and commercial paradigm of the new brands as well as the most famous ones.
Mental and physical well-being is a declination that derives from consuming, producing and thinking about products that have the drivers described above. Giving something to nature and dedicating a product to it makes you feel better about yourself “
Why did you decide to join the Lagalene crowdfunding campaign?
“The Lagalene mission corresponds to my world and my vision of seeing things.
I would talk for a long time, but mostly it really corresponds to the thought of its founder with whom I shared in a few moments his project and the modus with which he set up the business.
Omnia tempus habent…. This is Lagalene’s time! “
What do you think are the goals of the project?
“I have full confidence in the profiling that Francesco Arculeo has already given to the brand. However, being present in some particularly attentive markets will activate an increasingly transversal and innovative research process “.
For a multifaceted woman like you, what does it mean to be in balance with yourself?
“In my opinion, a true equilibrium is never reached, it is better to know that you never know enough.
Strength is not in balance but in knowing how to read in time the forces that can compromise your well-being and have the ability to immunize yourself, get up, react and remodel your strengths.
Balance is the change shared, appreciated, loved, by yourself, first of all. “
What does beauty mean to you?
“Beauty is not a canon, it is not a representable image.
We want to represent it at all costs, with a painting, a statue, we pretend to see it of exceptionally beautiful men and women. An inhuman effort, wanting to represent it at all costs and enclose it in a human, almost Babelic manifestation.
I believe that beauty stops when you find it. It is the path that seeks it, that desires it, that represents it, not that which is finally represented.
It is research and not its result. “
A wish for the future Lagalene?
“I wish its founder and its supporting members a future of beauty, of the elegant joy of doing business and of always bringing fractions of their sensitivity back into an entrepreneurial project that can teach something to the generations that populate our planet.”
