"Support our companies by buying Italian products".

This is the appeal of Maria Cristina Piovesana, president of Assindustria Venetocentro and vice-president of Confindustria, host of Itlas live.

For a couple of weeks now, the new president of Confindustria , Carlo Bonomi, has wanted her on his team. Maria Cristina Piovesana - the entrepreneur at the head of Assindustria Venetocentro, the association that brings together entrepreneurs from Padua and Treviso with around 3,500 members and the representation of 180,000 workers - has been appointed vice-president of the Italian industrialists with a delegation for the Environment and Sustainability. At her side is another woman, also from Veneto: Barbara Beltrame Giacomello, delegate for internationalisation. Piovesana was the guest on the fourth live Instagram episode of the weekly column created by Itlas and led by company founder Patrizio Dei Tos.

She talked about the lockdown of these months of the coronavirus epidemic and recounted the difficulties she encountered both as a businesswoman and as category president. "We experienced it right from the start, with Saturday and Sunday evenings closed in the association waiting for the decrees and figuring out and deciding what should be done on Monday morning, in total confusion," she confessed. "The Italians, - said the newly appointed vice-president of Confindustria - were very good in phase 1, but in phase 2 we are all very worried. Because we need certainty and speed. And instead we find ourselves faced with filth such as the work accident if someone gets sick with coronavirus".

She recounted the lockdown of these months of the coronavirus epidemic and recounted the difficulties she encountered both as a businesswoman and as a trade president. "We experienced it right from the start, with Saturday and Sunday evenings closed in the association waiting for the decrees and figuring out and deciding what should be done on Monday morning, in total confusion," she confessed. 'The Italians,' said the new vice-president of Confindustria, 'were very good in phase 1, but in phase 2 we are all very worried. Because we need certainty and speed. And instead we find ourselves faced with filth such as the work accident if someone gets sick with a coronavirus'.

Maria Cristina Piovesana's reading of the measures taken in recent months by the Italian government is of an anti-industrial and anti-business climate. "This happens because it is probably a reality that is not known. Welfarism does not belong to our DNA. Italian entrepreneurs need to be put in a position to create new jobs, without which it is impossible to think of creating new families'. He adds: 'Let us remember that if before young people could go abroad to look for work, today with Schengen closed there is not even this possibility'.

Chairman of the board of directors of Alf Uno di Gaiarine, a family-run Treviso-based company and leader in the furniture industry, Piovesana reads enthusiasm and a great desire to start again in the business world of the Northeast. "But it will take patience, cold blood, taking things slowly. It will take time to return to a new normality". To succeed, however, there is a need for the cooperation of an entire nation: "There is a need for greater patriotism and support for jobs in our community. That is why I appeal to the Italians:

Support our companies by buying our products. Which then means buying quality products".
