Chianti Economic Forum 2019: “Human Resources and Local Development – Skills for the Future of Work”.

After the first edition – that addressed innovation and internationalisation, export and business 4.0 – the second edition of the Chianti Economic Forum (on Friday November 15th, at the Cantine Antinori in the Chianti Classico) will be dedicated to: “Human Resources and Local Development – Skills for the Future of Work” .

“We’ve chosen to examine the job market in the Chianti region – the organising committee explains – to underline the relevance of human resources and new skills in the context of drawing up a strategy for local development. The quality of the workforce is a vital element when it comes to the development of a territory. And this is an issue that cannot be taken on by companies alone, but requires a deep intervention involving the whole system”.

From 4pm Sara Mariani, journalist of Agorà (Rai3) will present the Forum. Among the speakers will be:

  • Sandro Sartor, Managing Director of Ruffino and EMEA Managing Director for Constellation Brands
  • Silvia Donnini, Human Resources Director of Carapelli Firenze and President of Confindustria Firenze Sud Chianti
  • Renzo Cotarella, CEO of Marchesi Antinori S.p.A.
  • Alessandro Sordi, Founder and CEO of Nana Bianca business accelerator in Florence
  • Diego Ciulli, Public Policy Manager, Google Italy
  • Fabrizio Landi, President of Fondazione Toscana Life Sciences
  • Chiara Mancini, Expert of Business 4.0, Centro Studi CGIL
  • Cristiano Iacopozzi, President of ChiantiBanca

The event on November 15th will also be the opportunity to award the #ChiantiTesi prize for the best Master’s Degree thesis on Local Economy, promoted by ChiantiBanca and Chianti Economic Forum, and to present the Chianti Economic Report #2, which collects some data on the job market in the Chianti region.

“The objective of the Forum – the organising committee continues – is to facilitate reflection and dialogue between the various economic, private and public, entities on the subject of local development. It aims at keeping focus on the challenges of a changing job market.

Many partners support this initiative, sponsored by the Unione Comunale del Chianti Fiorentino and the Department of Economics and Business Sciences of the University of Florence. The Forum is also supported by ChiantiBanca, Antinori in the Chianti Classico , Ruffino, Lippert Components, CoMETA, WeChianti, ErreEnergie, ISOSPA, as well as from Confindustria Firenze, CNA Firenze Metropolitana and IRPET”.

Participation in the Chianti Economic Forum is free, subject to availability, but registration is required on the website

At the end of the event – that will take place from 4pm to 7pm – participants will be able to visit the Antinori winery in the Chianti Classico area, and will be invited to a buffet aperitif-dinner offered by the Rotary Club San Casciano Chianti at the Rinuccio Restaurant 1180.
