We like keeping up with times and staying updated on what’s happening around us.
Our desktops are always a disaster, but that’s where our best ideas were born!
We are committed every day to promote a change of course towards a more sustainable reality for our planet.
We are Italian (and most of all Tuscanian), so our love for good food is not a surprise!
Who we are
Niccolò never stops, he always works: occasionally he even falls asleep in the office or he stares into space, his favourite painting.
Sometimes he doesn’t listen to you, he gets lost in his thoughts, where may he be? You call him again and again and he doesn’t answer or worse: he answers “yes” but he wasn’t listening.
His biggest passion is cinema, he never stops watching movies or mentioning them. Another of his passion is walking in the woods: his father Dante transmitted it to him since he was a kid, when they went together seeking for mushrooms and asparagus.
Niccolò firmly believes that everyone can make a difference, step by step.
Daniele once stepped by accident on Camilla’s foot. She immediately asked: “What’s your sign? Are you a Pisces?”.
She was totally right!
Daniele believes he is lucky: he managed to work with people he like doing a job he loves.
Unfortunately this makes time run faster… but surely he doesn’t get bored while seeking for new fabrics or way to produce new clothes.
He always tries to do what he loves, with the purpose to build something.
Daniele thinks that creating is the best way to change things with the will to improve them.
Serial “to do list” compiler, infusios lover, meditative and nostalgic since she was born.
In life, just like in what she does at work, she loves to be in a “team” because that gives her the self-confidence that isn’t part of her personality.
While everyone’s dream is a vacation on a Caribbean beach, her secret wish is to see the Northern lights. Her favourite season is, in fact, winter.
Her biggest passion is photography. She loves pressing the camera button and moving around the subject to change points of view.
She likes stopping by to observing details that no one ever notice. She hates, instead, being on the other side of the camera.
She is curious and stubborn, there is no getting away from her when she sets her mind to trying something. She once tried five times in a row to make mayonnaise, and finally succeeded.
She likes walking in nature, Asian cuisine and vintage in all its forms.
And of course writing, her main task for Rifò, with a guiding conviction: the means is the message, but the means without the message is like an empty box.
Back in Florence after a few years in Barcelona, where she has focused her interest in sustainable fashion, Bianca is the new entry in Rifò's communication team.
Neatfreak or chronic mess maker? She is still trying to figure it out, but in the meantime she practices therapeutic decluttering throughout the office.
From an early age she played with the first videocameras, which probably only recorded in black and white. One day she would like to merge all the most important frames of her life into one video.
And... the most important thing: the videos cannot be edited without a little chocolate treat after lunch. No chocolate, no concentration.
Always positive and cheerful, as much as she's creative and full of ideas. Just as Greek mythology tells, Gaia is the primordial goddess of Earth, and indeed, caring for the planet is one of her greatest passions.
Moreover, Gaia Artemisia is an art enthusiast, almost as if she carries the name of paintress Artemisia Gentileschi herself. She adores spending time in nature and is a curious wanderer.
Claudia is our engineer. Heading every report, she measures environmental and social impacts down to the last detail—she's practically a scale herself, which explains quite a bit about her.
Passionate and determined, if you ask her, she can always provide you with sound advice... she's already calculated every conceivable variable!
If there is a problem to be managed or a solution to be found, Andrea is there. He gets into the Rifò van and rushes to our craftsmen to understand what's going on, making sure that everything goes in the right direction.
Tempted by Trello, but old school in the soul: without his handwritten notes and physical folders he is lost. In fact, everyone in the office covets them and punctually goes to get and mess them up.
If you find him on the street singing on the phone don't worry, he is a singer and he is probably recording some music notes to write his next song.
He sees his life as a magnificent "mid-air flight" and through his music he can say what he often does not express otherwise.
Chiara is our designer. Finally a vegetarian in the group! p>
She lives with her head in the clouds: every single detail that she notices in the world around her can set her off on a journey to unknown worlds. When this happens, she keeps her gazer fixed: it may look like she's eyeballing you, but actually she is not even seeing you.
When she doesn't draw she gets lost in many other projects: one day it is photography, another day it's cooking, then gardening, writing...
Whenever she gets the chance, she goes to the seaside, she dives into the water, rearranges her ideas and then lets her fantasy go. She thinks she was a fish in a previous life. Probably she really was.
Her motto? Grace and kindness will save the world.
Margherita, one third Ligurian, one third Bergamasque and now one third Tuscan!
Her crazy love for fashion and vintage, eclectic and sometimes bizarre clothes has given her a superpower... Her hands are like magnets: everything she finds, even in a tiny village shop, sticks to her. An explosive volcano of emotions, words and ideas. She pays attention to the smallest detail and nothing gets past her: going to a museum with her is dangerous... 24 hours may not be enough.
Cheerful, always willing to lend a hand and find solutions that can bring everyone together to solve even the most difficult problems! All this, of course, only after drinking coffee... no sugar, please!
A lioness in both spirit and demeanor; she rules with organization and precision.
A true "Yes woman," she can conquer a day of vendor-hopping, set a table, and handle spats with "Gianni" all in one stride.
The youngest of the pack, yet with an old soul. She's a constant presence whenever help is needed, ensuring everyone stays on track.
She entertains her colleagues by involving them in the search for the perfect outfits for her countless gala events.
In the grand theater of our team, Sofia, our Marshal, orchestrates with finesse and fortitude.
If our office were a hotel, Andrea would be the concierge.
He knows every corner of the warehouse and can effortlessly reel off the names of all the Rifò garments - past, present, and future - backward.
To fall asleep, Andrea counts our beanies Marcello. Energetic and tireless problem solver, on Sundays he rests by cycling across Monte Amiata.
Calm, dedicated to duty, and always willing to help others.
He is the organizer of the company's logistic life. He's constantly in motion, like a ping-pong ball, between the office and the warehouse, always sorting orders and looking for spaces for our items even when spaces seem to be lacking.
It's no coincidence that he's nicknamed the "Magician"; he has the power to turn the impossible into possible, and there's no clear answer to how he does it...
A bit like answering the question: What's a Livornese doing in Prato?
Clinton has also joined the family of Tuscan tortelli, despite his attachment to his Nigerian roots and cuisine.
He meticulously packs our e-commerce parcels, paying the utmost attention to detail.
Clinton knows the entire Rifò warehouse like the back of his hand and maneuvers through the myriad names of products effortlessly.
The colleagues from the communication team might have added a bit of complexity to his life with all the naming, but he manages to navigate through the tricky pitfalls of nearly identical garment names.
Sweet on the outside and resolute within, just like chocolate, which she can't live without. She adores art in all its forms and is always ready to accompany you to the most diverse exhibitions.
Often lost in thought among the clouds, yet always grounded: pragmatic advice is her forte. She loves to contemplate thoughtfully before making any decision, whether it's about important matters or the dessert on the menu.
Sicily is her homeland, sunny and welcoming, just like her. Her adventures have taken her all around Europe, but Paris has captured her heart, along with pain au chocolat and the French language.
Precise and kind, she guides customers and supports them with a certain savoir-faire.
She's captivated by foreign languages and cultures, creating the perfect recipe for an outstanding salesperson.
Her heart is filled with wanderlust, and she's open to the idea of embarking on an intergalactic journey!
The other side of her passions is belly dancing, an art that has enriched her life in countless ways.
The world is her home, leading her to advocate that each of us should contribute to its improvement, day by day.
With a strong spirit and ideas as clear as her skin type, Sara's only fear is overexposure to ultraviolet rays.
She brings the second floor of Rifò to life with her wild playlists, earning her the crown of DJ.
The spotlight is the perfect stage for this young rising star in the sales field.
She loves to sing in the hallways and immerse herself in Russian literary epics.
Her defining words are minimalism, simplicity, and authenticity.
A scout at heart, she loves being in nature, practicing meditation, and doing yoga. There's nothing better for her than a good book in a mountain meadow.
Forever committed to literally crunching... numbers, her one true passion! Precision is her mantra; everything must be exact, arranged, and organized according to her standards, even though Rifò is sparking a revolution even within her.
With excellent organizational skills, she pours her heart and expertise into everything she does, and giving up is simply not in her vocabulary. She won't rest until she finds the solution, no matter how long it takes.
She adores the culinary world but despises cooking; she's in love with art but lacks the knack for creativity. She's a travel enthusiast, but if you happen to hop on the subway with her, make sure to double-check the direction... she's probably chosen the wrong one!
