From Rome to Broughty Ferry

31st January 2024

t’s 1,673 miles from Blue2 developer Emanuele Brignone’s home in Nettuno, near Rome and our office in Broughty Ferry.
However, distance has proved no barrier for the talented Italian in his impressive development work on a number of eye-catching client websites over the last few years.
Emanuele, who is celebrating his fourth year with us, began his Blue2 career in Broughty Ferry in 2020. After a year of working in Scotland, Emanuele went back home as soon as Covid lockdown restrictions eased off but that was not the end of Emanuele’s Blue2 journey and he has remained an integral part of our team for the last three years.
This week, we said ‘buongiorno’ again to Emanuele for the first time in three years, as he came ‘back home’, making a flying visit to Scotland to meet a number of key clients and enjoy a post-work meal at Pizza Revolution - Broughty Ferry with his colleagues.
Emanuele said: “I work from my home in Italy for Blue2 but while I live so far away, I never feel alone.
“I really appreciate the fact that they wanted to keep me on as an employee when I moved back to Italy and I always feel like I’m part of one big, friendly team. They include me in everything they do - I even celebrated my Christmas lunch with everyone from ALTAR Group on a video call.
“But there’s something special about seeing people again in person and reconnecting beyond the computer so it’s great to be back in Scotland for a visit.”
