“The figure of Diana Bracco, entrepreneur and patron, was decisive in making Torviscosa an exemplary case of osmosis between production, development, preservation of memory and cultural relaunch of the territory and the community”. With this motivation, unanimously, the Municipality of Torviscosa, in the province of Udine, awarded Diana Bracco honorary citizenship. The ceremony during the conference ‘Sustainability, growth, employment: the Torviscosa model’, organized as part of the XXII Confindustria Business Culture Weekwhich was also attended by the president of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region, Massimiliano Fedriga.
In its Torviscosa plant, the Bracco group plans new expansions of production capacity to meet the growing demand for X-ray contrast agents. And for this reason he announced that he will make new hires. “The decision to award me honorary citizenship really moved me – said Diana Bracco upon receiving the recognition -. Thank you very much also for the beautiful words used in the motivation”. Moreover, she added, “as you know I have a very strong emotional bond with this Region, given the origins of my family and I am proud to have believed in the industrial potential of this territory which is an essential part of Italian manufacturing”.
Here in Torviscosa, he continued, “I have many unforgettable memories. In 2017, for example, we celebrated the ninetieth anniversary of our group, organizing a magnificent concert by the Accademia della Scala in the square in front of the Cid”. On that occasion “we also started a restoration work on the large sculptures by Leone Lodi dedicated to agriculture ‘The continuity of the lineage in work’ and to industry ‘Synthesis of Strength, Reason and Faith’. These and other projects, such as the digitization of the Snia archive, we supported them because we are truly convinced that production, sustainable development, preservation of memory and cultural relaunch of the territory and the community are parts of the same coin”.
