Cheers to 50 Years!


Volpe family raises a toast to tradition.

Members of the Volpe family, (l-r) Matteo, Giuseppe, Maria, Lucia and (little) Giuseppe, welcomed approximately 600 guests to their 50th-anniversary soiree at company headquarters in Vignate, Italy, recently (see story, p. 86). The event included a Champagne toast and the cutting of a raspberry-topped cake big enough for all the guests. Watch a video of the party action at, as well as a colorful description of the company’s history by both the eldest and youngest Volpes, who have their own distinct thoughts and opinions about the elevator industry, careers and a certain family member’s dietary habits!
