“Nothing is more serious and more engaging than a child at play. And while playing, his seriousness is very similar to an artist intent on his work. Like an artist, the child also transforms reality, reinvents and symbolically represents his fantasies and desires.” Silvia Veggetti Finzi “A Piccoli Passi”
A passion with origins in the past.
As a child, Giacomo Zanellati loved to create imaginative uniforms from scraps of leather for his entire legions of toy soldiers, giving rise to an outlet for an innate creativity.
And it was from there that Giacomo, second generation in the art of leather work, started with MA.GI srl, a family business founded in the ‘70s and based in Ravenna.
What began as a game was transformed into the creation of leather garments for himself and soon, and in a completely natural way, became the subject of the future business with the establishment in 1998 of the brand SWORD 6.6.44.
