Commented Alberto Franchi, President and CEO of Franchi Umberto Marmi. “With the Franchi Academy we are committed to creating an environment where,
we don’t exclusively focus on teaching the technical skills needed to work Carrara’s marble, but we also aim to educate young talents about the culture surrounding our industry.

“Congratulations to Franchi Umberto Marmi for this important recognition,” said Ernesto Lanzillo, Deloitte Partner and Deloitte Private Leader, and Andrea Restelli, Deloitte Partner and BMC Manager for Italy. “This edition, like the one in 2021, took place in a difficult context, marked not only by the continuing effects of the pandemic, but also by the eruption of a war scenario that has had serious repercussions on companies: from
supply chain disruptions to the price of raw materials, from the energy crisis to the food crisis, with inflation rates reaching record levels. Even in this challenging context, the award-winning companies have shown the ability to adapt, have innovated and have continued to be a flagship of excellence, demonstrating the strength and great potential of Made in Italy entrepreneurship”.
