Genoa – Alessandro Benetton, newly elected president of Edition, the group that includes all the companies of the Benetton family, published a video on Youtube in which he illustrated the group’s strategy and apologized for the tragedy of the collapse of the Morandi bridge.
“The fundamental point is, probably, that when I was offered this possibility, I decided not to stay on the bench but to get involved, together with my cousins, with the aim of bringing Edition back to what it has always been over the years. : an Italian reference point in the world ”, reads a note accompanying the video. As part of this new commitment, Alessandro Benetton wanted to underline a distance from the “errors“Made in the past. And in this context he cited the tragedy of Morandi, “A tragic consequence that will weigh forever”.
On social media, responding to a user, Alessandro Benetton returned to the topic: “Ponte Morandi is a story that will weigh on my family forever and I will never stop renewing my closeness to the families of the victims. We should have immediately apologized, apart from the fact that Edizione held only a little over 30% of Atlantia on whose Board – consisting mostly of independent directors – only one Benetton sat. Today, my cousins and I want to represent that discontinuity that allows the group to return to reason and operate as it once did, but with a new North Star: that of sustainability, understood in the broad concept of the term, sociae and global “.
