A grand event to celebrate its 125 years of activity
The event took place in the evening at the Cardinal’s Gallery of Palazzo Colonna, dedicated to the festivities of the company’s 125 years of activity and organized in occasion of the release of the book Biscotti P. Gentilini – 125 Years of Goodness (1890 – 2015).
Journalist Maria Grazia Mattei led the festivities, which saw President Paolo Gentilini as the first to welcome the guests, who with much enthusiasm retraced the company’s most important sequence of events and of his family from its origins to the affirmation of the national and international confectionary panorama.
Afterward, the author of the book, Daniela Brignone, explained the historical reconstruction work carried out over the past few years, starting with the spoken sources, the recounts by the family and the epistolary correspondences, to the historical documents in the archives in Rome, not only the company’s documents. The words of esteem and affection addressed by the other illustrious guests such as Nicola Zingaretti, President of the Latium Region, Paolo Barilla, President of Aidepi (Association of Italian Confectionery and Pastry Industries) and Pietro La Bruna, Head of the Italian Postal Philately, were also much appreciated.
