"Dear All, 

thank you for the support and the trust demonstrated throughout the 2-year mandate. It has been a great journey, during which I have learned from each of you and at the same time did my best to address the needs of all Committee Members.

This was a difficult year, but on a positive note, it showed us how platforms of discussions like this Committee could be useful to exchange information and gather different perspectives.

I would like to thank Stefano Passarello who has been the promoter of the rebranding process of the Retail Committee and a mentor to me.

I am happy to welcome Filippo Gori as Vice- Chairman for the coming 2 years. This rewards his continuous engagement in the  Retail Committee and Chamber's activities.

Thank you also to the fantastic team of the Chamber. 

Warm regards,
