KME has an ongoing commitment to the environment : not only has it instituted environmental policies for the group as a whole and its individual plants which are fully compliant with EU standards, but in recent years it has launched a number of concrete initiatives.
Certified quality management systems have been implemented in all KME Group companies with the aim of maximising customer satisfaction.
KME supports and hosts on its own property the first Italian branch of the international association Hole in the Wall Camps, which organises summer camps for children affected by serious and chronic illnesses.
KME and art
... a relationship that goes a long way back in time: over the years our group has sponsored the restoration of important works of art such as the equestrian statue of Cosimo I de’ Medici (piazza della Signoria, Florence), the bronze sculpture of the Dancing Satyr attributed to Praxiteles, the statue of the Capitoline Wolf (in Rome),
the Gilded Bronzes from Cartoceto of Pergola (including the production of two exact copies of the equestrian statue of Nero Caesar) and Casa Zuccari, which houses the Deutsche Kunst Institut in Florence.
Also this year KME is sponsoring the exhibition of sculpture and painting by the Florentine artist Alessandro Reggioli, that will be held at the Teatro Romano di Fiesole (Florence) from September 20 to November 2, 2008.
The sculptures were created using KME brass sheets produced at Fornaci di Barga, supplied to the artist for his works.
