Amatrice’s new Multi-school Campus named in honour of Sergio Marchionne
Amatrice’s new Istituto Onnicomprensivo Multi-school Campus, which was built in the aftermath of the earthquake that devastated Central Italy in 2016, was officially named in honour of the late Sergio Marchionne yesterday.
The ceremony was attended by representatives of the various authorities and institutions that have worked on rebuilding the town. Also taking part in the ceremony was Ferrari Chairman John Elkann, in a clear demonstration of the solidarity shown by the Marque. In fact, its work and close collaboration with many different entities from the locality was fundamental to the completion of the project.
It was Mr Marchionne, in fact, who, in August 2016, announced Ferrari’s decision to help the communities affected by the earthquake by auctioning the 500th LaFerrari. The 6.5 million euro raised by the auction was poured into the multi-school campus in Amatrice.
The event took place inside a now-completed building being used on a daily basis by the students to whom the day was dedicated.
During his address, Mr Elkann announced that Ferrari will be continuing its relationship with the Istituto Sergio Marchionne. In fact, it will be offering top students an educational experience in Maranello with the most talented being given opportunity to get to know the company at first-hand.
A connection sealed with the gift of an engine which, as all Ferraristi are well aware, is one of the most significant symbols of company and the heart of every single Prancing Horse car.
