Opto Engineering chose to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a private event attended by Italian customers, local authorities, as well as national and local media.
There could have been no better opportunity than Opto Engineering’s 20th anniversary to partner with Festivaletteratura, and select an exceptional venue together: the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua, which hosted the event on September 7.
During the afternoon celebration, a roundtable discussion, excellently moderated by Luca De Biase, was held on the topic of innovation and the future of the Italian technology industry. Among the speakers were prominent guests from academia and industry such as: Claudio Sedazzari, CEO and President of Opto Engineering; Francesco Morace, sociologist and founder of the Future Concept Lab; Marko Bertogna, Professor at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and director of the High-Performance Real-Time Laboratory (HiPeRT-Lab); Rita Cucchiara, Professor at the Enzo Ferrari Department of Engineering at UNIMORE; Maurizio Migliarotti, General Manager at Confindustria Mantova; Gianluigi Viscardi, President of Cosberg Spa, the Italian Technology Cluster Fabbrica Intelligente and the Digital Innovation Hub Lombardia; Maurizio Ferraris, Italian Philosopher and author of the book “Documanità”.
At the conclusion of the proceedings, guests were treated to a performance by an Ensemble of the Mantua Chamber Orchestra performing “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” by W. A. Mozart.
The following day, Opto Engineering and Confindustria Mantova met again for the presentation of the book “L’Alfabeto della Rinascita” (The Alphabet of Rebirth) – 26 stories of excellence Made in Italy) to share their experience and be an example not only for the Mantuan community, but for all entrepreneurs.
