The highlight, wrote the Florence-based newspaper, will be on the 10 of October: a round table that, in addition to Nardella, will convene the president of Confindustria Firenze Maurizio Bigazzi, the president of the Fondazione CR Firenze Luigi Salvadori, the president of the Chamber of Commerce Leonardo Bassilichi, the president of Confcommercio Firenze Aldo Cursano, the superintendent of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Alexander Pereira, Giorgia Giovannetti from the University of Florence, the CEO and president of Gucci, Marco Bizzarri. Attending through a video conference connection from Florence will be the director of the Gallerie degli Uffizi Eike Schmidt and Andrea Bocelli, president of his namesake Foundation.
At the close of the round table – La Nazione reports – there will be the presentation of the companies participating in the institutional mission to the United Arab Emirates, which were selected also based on their capacity for innovation. “It will be an opportunity not only to display the beauty of our artistic heritage through the genius of our David by Michelangelo, but above all to give visibility to the creative, entrepreneurial, and programming capacity of our city. We will show the world the Made-in-Italy production chain capable of putting its stakes on quality and innovation,” concluded Mayor Nardella.
