The old man was climbing up the steps of the old cable railway track. One step at the time he was coming up, carefully checking if everything was properly working. He couldn't remember when he started this job. It looked like he had always been there, every morning up and down of that staircase to ensure the quality of the service and the safety of the people.
"I'm getting too old", he thought, as he painted, stopping almost on top of the scala.
A chilly breeze made him turn toward the lake, where the view was stunning. The sun was coming up from behind the mountains and his light was uncovering the multitude of colors of the leaves of the trees preparing for the winter. It was an explosion of oranges, yellows and greens, made perfect from the chilly air of the sunrise.
Down, on the lake, the mist was still escaping the light hovering above the lake and on the valley where Como, the famous lakeside Italian city, was still sleeping.
He looked at the marvel in front of his eyes, and took a deep breath with all his lungs of the perfect air of that moment.
"I couldn't do anything else", he thought, before turning again and climbing back to the top.
250 milliliters of Pure Air from the Sunset of the 2017 first day of Autumn on Lake Como enclosed into a sealed characteristic glass bottle whose shape remembers the round edges of a smooth stone of the lake.
Every bottle shows the location of the Air, the day it has been collected, the number of the bottle and it has been personally signed by the collector that sealed the air. He is the guarantee of the quality and the perfection of the air inside the bottle.
The seal is handmade with italian satin ribbon and high quality red sealing wax.
Put it on your desk at work, expose it in your living room, show it as a unique piece of art and open it for the great occasions.
Remember, what's in there could never be recovered. That's the ultimate uniqueness in your hand.
Note: In order to properly maintain the feeling and the emotions bottled with the air, this air is purely as it was and it's not filtered. We find the purest places to bottle our air but exactly because of this it may contain particles, flower aromas and smells that were present at the bottling location that may cause temporary discomfort to extremely sensitive people.
