New Concession in Carpi

On November 9, Barbara B started, with great satisfaction, an important new contract – it is the management by five-year concession of the cemetery areas of the City of Carpi (Modena).

A flower to not forget

A FLOWER TO NOT FORGET is a new project that is seeing Barbara B as one of the major promoters, also being the larger shareholder in the Piacenza Servizi Cimiteriali joint venture. This project has also the full support of Gruppo Fioristi Confcommercio Piacenza. The idea behind the project comes from the fact that more than 300 tombs in the urban cemeteries of Piacenza are currently abandoned having no more relatives to take care of them. Nevertheless, a community has the duty of remember even those who have no family to commemorate any more. For this reason, we decided to take action and to lay a flower on each and every unattended tomb to pay our respect. Gruppo Fioristi Confcommercio Piacenza immediately joined Piacenza Servizi Cimiteriali in this project and they provided it with a donation of 300 plants.

Watch out! Bees at work!

Bumping into a honeycomb in a cemetery it’s not unusual – if that’s the case we’ve got to action promptly for the safety of the visitors, the staff and…the bees themselves! Here’s how we do it: we contact a local professional beekeeper; they’ll remove the honeycomb that can be later placed into a beehive granting survival to the bees and fresh honey to all of us!
