Alfredo loved the Swiss tradition, although he found this custom a bit odd without snow in the middle of summer in Argentina. In the revelation of his childhood memories, he tried to compile the most important symbols for the Georg Jensen series which he associates with Christmas. These were a star, a glass ball, the Three Kings, Santa Claus, and angels which have always fascinated him as a child.
