With the initiative promoted by the Fondazione Symbola, Confartigianato e Coldiretti as part of the Manifesto di Assisi, this year the traditional nativity scene is enriched with a new character: the figurine for 2021 is the entrepreneur who uses technology, to highlight the role of the company that faces new challenges for the economic and social growth of the country; symbol of the entrepreneur who has faced the difficulties of the pandemic by continuing to guarantee services and products to citizens, despite limitations and lockdowns.
Made of papier-mâché by the Lecce master craftsman Claudio Riso, it is the emblem of men and women of good will committed, with their companies, to building a new future, under the banner of innovation and sustainability.
