“We will continue to partner with the other organizations in our industry, following the guidelines mapped out by Vitrum president Dino Zandonella Necca and by Gimav president Cinzia Schiatti, consistent with what has been done to date,” says Biason. “We already have many future projects in the works, proof of the vitality of this Italian industry that manages to achieve state-of-the-art qualitative and technological advances acknowledged around the world.”
