A name that finds its origin in a far away time, in a man that dedicated all his life to research, studies and the spread of Latin and Greek beauty and philosophy. Even after five hundred years his innovations in the field of classical antiquity publications are a distinguished encyclopedia of humanistic knowledge. The passion for Romanity, stated also in the bronze engravings with Italic type, lead Aldus to choose an image engraved on an ancient roman coin as trademark and “Festina Lente” as motto, translated as “hurry slowly” and meaning “think about it and then react”. With the same passion for Romanity, its history and culture, Aldus today interprets in the shapes and the materials the rigour, the character and the solidity of the history from which Aldus takes inspiration. In this way, Rome and its atmosphere become reinterpreted through shapes and materials in the hands of skillful craftsmen. The philosophy of Aldus is to enclose in matter and form objects between modernity and timeless elegance.
QUOD NOS SUMUS SEMPER. HABITUS AUTEM NON EST ACTUS VIRTUTIS
If in the shape Aldus objects find a common style identity, it is with the choice of materials that they reveal their affinity to a personal taste, unmistakable and unique. Bronze, glass and wood are worked by our craftsmen to confer an elegant patina upon the objects in a contemporary and unique timeless way. It is the excellence of Italian craftsmanship, with its ancient expertise, who translates a complex project into an object of simple shapes, essential and pure.
