The entrepreneur Tripi pointed out how we Italians “know how to react like no one else in the world. Thanks in part to teamwork: team sports help us understand what it means to work with others, in a company and in institutions.”
“We need to think about new growth models, thanks to innovation, sustainability and new technologies with a medium and long term approach to look to the future more optimistically”, Benetton added. “In order to take a turn at top speed, you have to look as far forward as possible, as Schumacher can teach us. The world championships are an opportunity, the great event for renewal, an occasion for the relaunch that will have a structured coronation with the 2026 Olympics.”
“The entrepreneur’s approach is always optimistic and this time I am very optimistic”, AlmavivA’s CEO, Tripi, stated.
“In Italy, we have proven to be skilled in the digital field and the world championship ecosystem is an example of this. With Fondazione Cortina, Anas, CAV and Veneto Strade we are creating a standard-setting experience on the European stage with smart roads and the control and monitoring center for safe mobility of people and vehicles”, Tripi added, “and the dramatic emergency that we are in has also taught us that technology is not an enemy. It is a resource, a friend, a companion.”
