Bonfiglioli and Virtus

The Bonfiglioli Group is the new official sponsor of Virtus Basketball.
To celebrate this union between two historically excellent Bologna “teams”, the name of Bonfiglioli Riduttori will appear on the competition strip of Virtus Basketball’s first team for the entire 2011 season and will also accompany the “Black Vs” in numerous promotional and communication events until the end of the 2012/13 season.

“We are enthusiastic about this new agreement”, commented Sonia Bonfiglioli, CEO and Managing Director of the Bonfiglioli Group. “This is a great opportunity for us to link our professionalism with the sporting skills of Virtus. This home-grown Bolognese sponsorship deal shows clearly that hard work, dedication and new ideas can give excellent results in industry and sport alike.”

Her words were echoed by Claudio Sabatini: “We are delighted that this fantastic project has got under way. Bonfiglioli Riduttori and the Sabatini Group have enjoyed mutually profitable relations for many years. Now, in the light of Bonfiglioli Riduttori’s being awarded the Leonardo Prize by President Napolitano as standard-bearers for Italian quality abroad, I can only be proud of the faith that the Bonfiglioli family is showing in us and in Virtus. I am confident that this new sponsorship deal will prove a good move for both parties."
