SF4T Surface Finishing for Target is a digital platform, entirely in English, dedicated to surface treatment. Its organization is based on the symbiosis between two interactive and complementary realities, the Editor and ITS – International Technical Supervisor:

The EDITOR or editorial curator, is represented by the company La De.sign (www.ladesign.it) which has always dealt wif Funnel Marketing, Study of Digital Marketing Strategies, Social Media Marketing, Digital Platforms. The Editor’s contact details, shown in the footer, include a specific e-mail address for the activities of the digital platform: editor@surfacefinishing4t.com – the Editor deals with the administrative, functional and operational aspects of the platform, managing the billing of customer services. 

The contacts planned with the Editor will therefore concern the administrative and functional issues of the platform.
