Condolences pour in from across the region, with Sassuolo Mayor Gian Francesco Menani remembering Mussini as “an extraordinary person,” while Fiorano Mayor Francesco Tosi praises him for harmonizing family love with entrepreneurial endeavors.

Legacy of Panariagroup

Panariagroup Industrie Ceramiche, founded by Mussini in 1974, stands as a testament to his vision and leadership.
