Elevatori Magazine’s Technical Committee grows

 In News

New entries in the Technical Committee of Elevatori Magazine, which has always been a great support to the editorial staff by proposing technical and regulatory
contributions, food for thought or opinions on articles to be published. And it does so thanks to the commitment of the many experts in the vertical transport sector who are on board, each with their own specialisations, great experience and professionalism developed over many years of work and study in the sector.

We are very pleased to announce that, starting from this issue, the Technical Committee will be enriched by four very valuable figures coming both from the world of companies and associations, and from the academic and university world: Angelo Fumagalli, Alessandro Greco, Raffaella Lione and Fabio Minutoli.

They are all names already known to our readership for the interesting articles they wrote for Elevatori Magazine even before joining our Technical Committee.
Founder and Chairman Giuseppe Volpe, Publisher Matteo Volpe, the entire editorial staff and the experts already on the Technical Committee of Elevatori Magazine are pleased to welcome the new members who, with their knowledge and commitment, will contribute to increasing the knowledge of the vertical
transport sector and spreading its culture through the activities of one of the most important and long-lived magazines in the lift sector, which is distributed worldwide.
