The group released the following statement: “The entire Ferretti Group team, chairman Norberto Ferretti, the board of directors and the executive
committee, deeply shaken by his premature death, share the sorrow that Mrs Basile and family bear. He will always be remembered for the great love he had for his work, his strategic vision and strong, sensitive personality, qualities he managed to convey instantly to all group employees, with enthusiasm, motivation and strength.”
