Florence, 18 July 2018 - A warm summer evening, one of the most beautiful views in the world, overlooking the lights of the city of Florence lit up at sunset. It is in the breathtaking setting of Piazzale Michelangelo that, this evening, Menarini will welcome the winners of the XXIInd edition of the Fair Play-Menarini Award.
A gala dinner to celebrate those champions who, relying on just their sporting talent, have distinguished themselves on the playing field by strictly following the rules, respecting their opponents, and fully represent the values of Fair Play.
"For a company like Menarini, committed day in, day out to the research of new treatments, it is necessary to have fair play in your DNA - said Ennio Troiano, Corporate Director of Human Resources of the Menarini Group. For the sixth consecutive year Menarini will be paying homage to those sporting champions who personify the true value of Fair Play, in life and in sport, and are positive example for generations to come all around the world".
