In a podcast in front of GIFA I was talking with Riccardo Ferrario, President of Italian AMAFOND and General Manager of IDRA about the Italian foundry industry, the challenges, and the chances. Riccardo carries out that there is a lot of work to be done and many changes to be made.


So he calls for more investment in talents and competence. Italy was a foundry Disneyland for classic castings for the automotive industry and now they must find alternatives.

GIFA is the right time for exchange and face to face meetings and the Italian supplier industry is expecting and hosting visitors at GIFA in hall 11 and 16 at the Piazza Italia.

Get an impression of Italian competence and hospitality and listen to the exciting podcast with Riccardo Ferrario (11 min.), about the foundry industry and also about the future of giga castings.
