TECHNICAL INFO The parasol is entirely handcrafted and realized in the Poggesi headquarters in Figline Valdarno (Florence). The structure is made of stainless steel and aluminium (varnished with polyester-based thermosetting powders coats) to ensure the highest resistance to corrosion; plus it’s equipped with a side winch to open and close the cloth and a posterior winch to pull up and down the arm of the parasol, unlike the traditional cantilever umbrellas that come with both the winches on the lateral side.

As much as the other cantilever umbrellas, it’s always possible to adjust the cloth, which is entirely sewn with cotton thread by the craftsmen of the company to ensure the highest waterproofing, by using the handle on the sliding rail and direct the arm by rotating it of 365°. Once closed it’s perfectly vertical placed, reducing the overall dimensions to the minimum.
