19 Jan 2024 Ognibene Power: the ambulance in memory of Olmes Ognibene
On the occasion of Family Day, held on September 16th, 2023, Ognibene Power donated an ambulance to the Italian Red Cross of Bagnolo in Piano in memory of our founder, Olmes Ognibene.
In fact, 2023 was a particularly significant year for us: we celebrated both the 70 years of history of the company but also the 100 years since the birth of Olmes. We remember him as an extremely determined man in the pursuit of his objectives and attentive towards his collaborators. For this reason, we decided to commemorate him by supporting our local community.
On September 16th, after an emotional speech held by Irene Ognibene, granddaughter of Olmes and daughter of Claudio Ognibene, the actual donation of the ambulance was held in the presence of the Ognibene family, Stefano Maramotti, president of the CRI of Bagnolo in Piano , some CRI volunteers, and all those present at the Family Day.
However, the celebrations do not end here. The inauguration took place on September 23rd in Piazza Garibaldi, in Bagnolo in Piano. Among those present, there was the mayor of the town, Gianluca Paoli.
To conclude, we report below some precious words from a dear colleague of ours:
“November 6th, 12.30 pm, immersed in city traffic on the green wave.
An ambulance drives in the fast lane.
But it is the ambulance dedicated to Olmes Ognibene and donated to the Red Cross on the occasion of the company’s 70th anniversary!
A feeling of emotion mixes with the pride of having known a great man and, lastly, the happiness of knowing that we will often find him next to us on the streets of our city.”
