In this world in crisis, Galiatea would like to thank the heroes that surrounds us, those on the front lines: the nurses, the doctors, the police, as well as the truckers, the grocers…and so many fighting to help us overcome this terrible pandemic. Unfortunately, no one is safe …not even our humble artisans working daily to survive. Thank you for remembering them all: from the heroes to the artisans and their families.
