Angelo Lovati particularly distinguished himself for his active role in GIMAV as a member of the Board of Directors and President, as a representative for various years in the FEDERMACCHINE General Council, and for his contribution to VITRUM as a member of the Board of Directors.
Mr. Lovati was the CEO of Lovati Fratelli, well-known the world over for the construction of shaped-glass processing-, grinders and CNC machinery, and was one of the pioneers of the Italian mechanical industry for glass processing. He was valued by all for his professionalism, honesty and fairness, and was dedicated to work but also strongly linked to his family.
The glass sector has lost an important protagonist who was part of the success of the Italian at international and global level. He was, in fact, one of the first to open a direct branch in the US, together with his close friend Annibale Besana, and was also one of the first to believe in CNC machines.
He worked within the Association with a united and compact spirit for the benefit of all protagonists of the Italian glass sector.
He will be deeply missed, but his teachings will remain a treasure and a heritage for us all.
Our condolences go to his wife and the whole family.
