Renato Vito Bocca,
Founder of Li.Bo:
"We all know that doing business requires certain conditions, such as infrastructure, easy access to credit, certain regulations and fast justice, sustainable level of taxation and, last but not least, domestic demand. We also know that these elements are often missing or lacking, especially in the South. But determination and passion for one's work are able to overcome the obstacles that entrepreneurs find in their path, enabling them to do good business. I am pleased to have grown Li.Bo along this long path, to have evolved it from a local to a national and, in recent years, international offering, involving my children in this entrepreneurial and growth path, who represent the generational change of Li.Bo."
, Head of Practice "Southern Scenario," The European House - Ambrosetti:
"Those who are familiar with our projects and the method we have chosen to apply in Basilicata know how much we believe in the possibility that dialogue and collaboration between businesses and institutions, but also between local and central institutions, will be increasingly strengthened in this region. In fact, in addition to quality investments, it is dialogue and collaboration that can trigger change, promoting innovation and sustainable economic and social development in the medium and long term. We are very happy to be at Li.Bo's side on this anniversary that reminds us not only how small and medium-sized enterprises are the backbone that keeps Italy on its feet but also how much it matters, in the evolutionary path of a territory, to have confidence in the future and to take advantage of crises to trigger or accelerate transformative paths. Renato Bocca and the story of Li.bo remind us that Lucanians are tireless and silent workers but also that giving up, in today's complex scenario, is not an option for those who love their homeland. That's why this Forum calls not only for a time of "celebration" but also for a time of responsibility, of all institutions, to accompany their companies on a path of growth, as modern and visionary as possible."
