Bologna –

Virtus Segafredo Bologna, Italian Champion Club 2020/2021, and Poggipolini S.p.A. announced today in a press conference the new commercial partnership. The Hi-Tech company, one of the ten players in the world in the segment of hot forging of hi-tech “screws”, will be at the side of the V Nere, as Official Sponsor, for the next three seasons.

“The message that Poggipolini Spa wants to send – says Michele Poggipolini, C.E.O. of the family company – with its entry into Virtus Pallacanestro is strongly linked to the interest in future generations, especially in this particular moment. The global pandemic that is still going on has greatly changed our lives, it has forced us into long periods of social isolation, but those who have been most affected are the young, from childhood to adolescence, those forced into DAD, those who have not been able for two very long years to play sports, see friends, simply be in the company of others to cheer on their favorite team, at home or in a sports hall. It is for this reason that Poggipolini spa – continues the national member of the General Council of Confindustria – is honored to become part of the great Virtus family, one of the most titled and successful clubs in Italy as well as an example of how sport is healthy, constructive and able to help grow in an integrated educational path. Moreover, because we believe in and share President Zanetti’s entrepreneurial and sports project, challenging and ambitious. We are doing this together with Virtus, right at the moment in which Poggipolini is launching Speed Up Lab, a house-laboratory of innovation, a center of development of excellence where we will collaborate in partnership with young startups, suppliers, clients and universities with the vision of creating a new technological chain that points to the sectors of aeronautics, space and that is already working on new propulsive energies, from electric to hydrogen, high professional training of new skills and academic research. Thinking of young people – concludes the President of the Group of Young Entrepreneurs of Confindustria Emilia – their future, both in sport and in real life, this is the time for an entrepreneurial ruling class worthy of the name, able to commit themselves by building concrete things. Not just words: we have always invested heavily in the future, confident in a history that has taught us to travel through time. We do it again today, because we believe in it”.

“We are proud to welcome Poggipolini as our new partner – comments Luca Baraldi, CEO of Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna – as a Company we are always very attentive and proactive towards new technologies and innovation. This new sponsorship agreement makes us proud for several reasons: first of all, it is a three-year partnership with a leading international company in its sector, led by a young entrepreneur, Michele Poggipolini, who like us has strongly expressed interest in the future generations. The agreement reflects Virtus Segafredo’s desire to aim more and more for excellence, – continues the manager of the V Nere – moreover, Poggipollini S.p.A. is the bearer of fundamental values that we fully share such as innovation and change. I hope that this new collaboration will lead both companies towards a future full of satisfaction.”
