Overview

Magari is an Italian word with several meanings: if only, would that it were true, perhaps. It was chosen because it contains a touch of irony, putting a smile on one’s face and helping to create a good mood. While hard work and great determination have been dedicated to the Ca’Marcanda project, the name Magari reflects the Piedmontese way of not trumpeting one’s accomplishments.
