On the 19th of December 2006, Fassa Bortolo, a leader in construction, became the first company to join the prestigious “Amici di Venezia” club, a kind of super committee, inspired by Mayor Cacciari. This club is formed of top-rate companies which, by means of a three-years partnership, link their name to Venice.

Fassa Bortolo not only became the sponsor of the main events, but it also allowed the city to use its own laboratories for testing new building products which might be employed in Venice central area.
