Bertazzoni S.p.A. president, Paolo Bertazzoni has been recognised with the title of Cavaliere del Lavoro by the president of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella.

This prestigious accolade acknowledges Paolo’s commitment, dedication, and visionary leadership, which have propelled Bertazzoni S.p.A. and firmly established its presence in the global market.

The honour of Cavaliere del Lavoro was established in 1901 by King Vittorio Emanuele III of Italy, with the aim of recognising and rewarding entrepreneurs who have distinguished themselves through their contributions to the economic and social progress of the country.

Initially conceived to honour achievements in the agricultural sector, the honour was later extended to include other categories of productive activities such as industry, commerce, craftsmanship, and financial services.

Each year, the President of the Republic appoints a maximum of 25 Cavalieri del Lavoro, representing the pinnacle of Italian entrepreneurship. They also become members of the Order of Merit for Labour, which promotes the values of work, innovation and progress.
