At the age of 82 years old, in 2010, Giannino Marzotto together with his three daughters founded Associazione Progetto Marzotto and championed Premio Gaetano Marzotto, an award for the new Italian entrepeneurship system.
As SANTEX RIMAR GROUP main shareholders, Giannino Marzotto’s family members are today proud to pursue the family effort in sustaining young entrepreneurs.
The goal of Associazione Progetto Marzotto is to award, above all among the younger generations, those persons who are making a concrete attempt to transform ideas into actions, for those who distinguish themselves for their courage and intelligence, and to give them a backing – even a financial one.
Premio Gaetano Marzotto was inspired by the figure of Giannino’s father, Gaetano Marzotto, a reference point for twentieth century business who was able to unite business and society, culture and the territory. The Association aim is to recognize and award those whose vocation is to undertake, directly or indirectly, what Count Gaetano Marzotto exemplified during his life.
