Giovanni Vitaloni Named New MIDO and ANFAO President
The Associazione Nazionale Fabbricanti Articoli Ottici (ANFAO) has elected the senior figures who will lead the Confindustria association for the next four years: at the General Meeting held in Belluno, Giovanni Vitaloni was chosen as the new President, also taking on the Presidency of MIDO. The new Presidency Board, which will support him in his role, was also chosen: Paolo Pettazzoni, Renato Sopracolle, Lorraine Berton, Nicola Del Din (Vice Presidents) and Cirillo Marcolin (Past President). The new Vice Presidents will be supported by delegates for specific activities: Callisto Fedon for relationships with Certottica, Enrico Tormen for the Technical Commission and Nadia Zampol for internationalisation.
Giovanni Vitaloni, formerly Vice President of the association and delegate for MIDO, comes from a family of Turin industrialists and is the founder and director of Nico-design. He boasts over thirty years’ experience in the industry. The new President takes over from Cirillo Marcolin.
The new President’s first challenge will be the debut in Florence (September 23-25) of DaTe, the event dedicated to the most innovative eyewear, which in 2016 at The Mall (Milan) attracted over 2,300 individual visitors and over 100 exhibitors from across the whole world. There will then be the 2018 edition of MIDO (Milan, February 24-26).
