Daniele from Piumini Danesi shares, “We are all caught up with the bustling of work, family, and city life, hence we often tend to forget to take care of ourselves and we underestimate the importance of recharging our own batteries with simple natural sleep. And this is so important for the game of chess where concentration and mental strength is required.”
The company Piumini Danesi is full of chess culture. They literally eat and sleep chess – the game is part of every lunch or coffee break, they follow every big international tournament, and they are proud owners of beautiful chess sets.
Chessdom: Hello Daniele and thank you for this interview. There is an expression that if you want to improve your game you have to “eat, sleep, and breathe” chess. It is very interesting to know more about how Piumini Danesi looks into this.
Piumini Danesi: For now we are concentrated on the sleeping part:) It is hard to realize how important a good night relaxation can affect your daily performance. And chess is a perfect research method for this field.
We all know the brain works exhaustively during a chess game. Being fully relaxed helps you in multiple ways. You definitely get a boost of concentration. This further enhances your calculation power and subsequent variation searches. As a secondary effect this leads to better time management and we know how important this is in nowadays chess.
However, for the past year we are looking at yet another spectrum of the chess game. Recent studies have shown that chess is not only mental sport, but it is also physically exhausting. In competitive games players can lose up to a few kilograms due to the efforts on the board. Having a prepared, relaxed, and regenerated organism before a match is essential and we are looking now more deeply into this effects.
Chessdom: Interesting, is this why Magnus Carlsen practically slept through a few moves of the recent FIDE World Championship?
Piumini Danesi: It is very possible that Carlsen has found his own method of fast mind and body relaxation. He drinks his famous juice, he brings his own chef for the food, he sits in strange ways on his chair during games.
But most of us are not Carlsen, we are ordinary people having our daily routines. We mainly concentrate on our jobs during the day. The night is the time when we relax and providing the comfort for our mind and body during that time is important.
Chessdom: You seem to have been following Carlsen closely
Piumini Danesi: Of course, chess is part of our every day life in Piumini Danesi. and following the World Championship was high quality fun.
Chessdom: Probably as an Italian company you are following Fabiano Caruana too?
Piumini Danesi: Sure we follow him! In the recent months his game has gone to a whole new level. He crossed 2800 ELO last June, then had stellar rise to 2850+, as he made a miracle streak at the Sinquefield Cup.
Ok, this year he had slightly worse performance in Grenke and Zurich, but still he is playing beautiful chess. That is why in the mindset of many people here at Piumini Danesi, and I suppose around the world, Caruana is one of the most natural contenders for the World Chess Champion title which currently is a possession of Magnus Carlsen.
