COLOSSO is a new innovative company that specializes in the design, analysis and physical testing of high-tech materials and structures. We combine a solid understanding of mechanics and material science, with state-of-the art simulation and non-destructive testing capabilities.
Our company name reflects our strategy. Il colosso di Rodi was a statue of the Greek titan Helios erected around 300 BC. With its 30 meters of height it was one of the tallest structures at its time. What was remarkable about the statue is that its two legs were placed on opposite sides of the entrance of the harbor on two solid foundations. Similarly our company is based on two solid foundations, applied research and engineering. We believe knowledge is the key driver for our company. Therefore we keep investing in new technologies and we spend a significant amount of time studying new materials, unconventional structures and physical and non-destructive testing techniques As soon as the knowledge obtained in this way is mature, it is applied to our engineering processes.
