He continued the company founded by his grandfather Luigi. He was awarded in November by Mattarella, and was also the head of the basketball team
Manzano. Its name is closely related to the modern history of Manzano and the “Chair Triangle”. Alvis Bassoni, owner of the monolithic company based in the Brava industrial area of San Giovanni al Nazioni, died on Saturday at the age of 68, but he was born in the capital of the See in 1948. The disease he contracted has exacerbated his conditions in recent days, until the sad end .
The family’s history stems from the initiative of Luigi Passoni, the predecessor who opened the first laboratory in the village of Kiss. Then the baton passed to his son Ermano, and then to his nephew Alves, who, in turn, worked alongside his son Tommaso for several years. The news of the disappearance was a severe blow to everyone who knew the entrepreneur, as dozens and dozens of messages of condolence had been sent to the family in the past few hours. “He was very respected in the area – says his son Tommaso – and was always very well liked and respected by everyone.” His joining the family business dates back to the late 1970s, and in that capacity, “has lived for over 40 years at Salone del mobile, collaborating with designers from all over the world”. Also known internationally, he has led the company to become a quality brand. “Someone in the past was called a chair by Walt Disney – Tommaso Passoni remembers fondly – and I like to remember him like that.” During his career, he has received many awards on behalf of the brand, including the last one in November directly from the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, as Italian Excellence with the Innovation Awards.
In addition to his work, Elvis Bassoni has also been very active in the social field, serving as the head of the youth division of Centrosedia basketball between the 1990s and early 2000s. A passion for football was born in the wedges by accompanying his son to matches: “He always tried to give his contribution. He was a fan of the mountains and that is why he was among the first members of the Cai di Manzano,” adds his son. The businessman also had a great passion for model aircraft, so much so that he created a small airport in Ulysses. “We often fly our planes together – comments the mayor, Piero Forlani – we have known each other since we were children. We grew up together.” Elvis Bassoni’s funeral will be held on Tuesday, June 22nd at 5 p.m. in the Chapel of Manzano.
