April 2003


One soccer match, against a team from South America, where Marco and his companions, still kids, were literally torn apart (14-0 being the final result). Yet, as recounted by their coach after the game, the only one that tried to turn the situation around until the last moment and never got discouraged was Marco Chiancianesi. Soccer brings out a character, competitiveness and teamwork. Traits that have proved to be fundamental in his life. Marco is considered as “the one who never gives up and fights ‘till the end”, in all fields. It wasn’t chance that his coaches, when it came to winning, always put Marco in the middle of everything, for his leadership qualities. This same approach is reflected in business: “You believe, until the end. There is no time to weep for small losses but to win big.”
