• The First Foundation For Business People That Helps Young People And Children In Difficulty Through Work And Education

Remembering Angelo

You always pushed us to bring out our best, to improve ourselves to be more useful to the company. You taught us to be good humored, the joy of living and the simplicity to enjoy the little things: love and dedication to family, work and devotion to Madonna S.S. Assunta who is venerated just two steps from the house where you were born.”
– Mariangela, Antonio and Giovanni Affinita, children

“f we stop for a second, we can still hear your voice repeating, ‘I’m an optimist but also a realist’. A phrase that captured who he was and his personality: a positive outlook at life but aware of its difficulties, ready to confront them with the grit of a lion. The door to your office was always open, a welcoming sign for any of those who wanted to stop and talk or just have your opinion”.
– Employees

“n a land so desperate for work like southern Italy, he always relentlessly defended his employees’ jobs. He always worked for work in the south, always had a business ethic and a way of doing business.  His way of doing things carried the imprints of goodness, both in his profession and privately; he was involved in numerous charities, for example his support of “Casa do Menor” in Brasile, long distance adoptions to save children from death and slavery. What’s more, he transmitted the desire for his employees to emulate him.”
– Eng. Angelo Maria Campione,  friend

“His sensitivity, the attention he gave to every person he had in front of him and his generosity are all stamped in my heart. The work done in his business provided employment for many people and those he employed became like family, creating relationships that go well beyond work. Work and faith: two words that define his life.”
Teresa and Emilio Nuzzo, grandchildren Angelo Affinita

“He was a loving husband, a responsible and present father, a generous and caring employer. I visited his factory and I found a family atmosphere. He was able to involve his workers and many friends to be part of a network of solidarity to save many children and young people who were not loved in Brazile in “Casa do Menor” He pushes us to honor his memory continuing to be like he was and do what he did: good for others.”
