The magic of words
On the occasion of the competition “The Magic of Words”, the participants wrote memories inspired by the life of Angelo Affinita.
“The Lord has wrapped in you all the virtues, making you a extraordinary person in everyday ordinariness.”
“Simplicity, modesty, reflection; you could talk to us irritated, with a thousand business and human issues. It was the soul of your acting, in the difficult and turbulent world of industrial civilization. You won soberly, without emphasis. You still win today along with all of us.”

“In 2005 I met a little big man who could see farther than anyone else. Although he was the shortest, he was able to accumulate more experience, because he faced more problems than anybody else.He was wiser than everyone because he was the leader of everybody.”

“Do not close yourself inside your convictions. Learn to listen to others, nothing is obvious, everything is always at stake. Seek the truth always, even when it’s inconvenient: be sincere and never betray trust. Love life, your family, engage yourself in your job but do not take everything too seriously,learn to have fun in what you do as well. Forgive and let yourself be forgiven, be magnanimous and you’ll see that your time will not expire: somebody else, with friends, at work or on other occasions will remember you and will tell many episodes and enterprises in which you were the protagonist.”

It is the man to make the difference!
Losing a father is always distressing, but the heritage my father Angelo left me, inspires me every single day of my life.
It is my and my family’s duty to honor his memory, sharing with other entrepreneurs and professionals his example.
My father was used to say: “It’s man to make the difference”.
Do we want to try – together – to make the difference?
