Why Marsala Red?
The Pantone Color Institute researches for the needs of people around the world. What are the environmental needs? The social economic factors? The influences all around us for the next year..Most important, they make a prediction of which color gives the reflection of what people are looking for and what they feel.
According Pantone’s research, there will be a strong need for nurturing, and things that feeds ourselves, our mind and body. What color than a red tone can represent better the earthiness, red wine, rich meals and rusty winebarrels? That’s why ‘Marsala Red’ fits right for these needs.
