Garrone: “For the good of Confindustria I’m taking a step back”


For “a strong Confindustria, it is necessary first of all to put a candidate in a position to be able to choose his own team and his own structure freely, without any conditioning and negotiation that would make him weak and sanction his failure from the beginning”. With a long letter, “moved and excited”, Edoardo Garrone announces: “The choice to put the purpose before the person therefore requires me to take a step back and allow Emanuele Orsini to find the ideal conditions to lead Confindustria without conditioning, and to be able to do it with a great sense of responsibility, in the name of a collective goal that is much more important than us as individuals”.

The excluded Antonio Gozzi, president of Duferco and Federacciai, a few days ago, had indicated Orsini to his supporters as the candidate to support. Shifting a significant package of votes towards the Emilian. at least fifteen preferences, over one of Carlo Bonomi’s deputies, with responsibility for Finance, Credit and Taxation, who left months ago to win the post-Bonomi presidency. On the eve of a match that promised to be uncertain, even if Orsini’s entourage has been considering for days that victory is within reach, Garrone’s move to avoid reaching a count and, perhaps, his defeat. Also a way to prevent the Orsini-Gozzi axis from being welded, perhaps leading to a more collegial and open management of Confindustria after Bonomi.

From this comparison, if Garrone’s sideways step is confirmed, the fact emerges that the small and medium enterprise model, that of Emilia and the North-East, takes the reins of Confindustria, overtaking the large enterprise of the North, between Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria, which failed to express a single strong candidate, but was divided between two Ligurians: Garrone on one side and Gozzi on the other. A situation that then favored Orsini’s climb.
