In Memoriam: Gianni Radici (1924-2005)

Gianni Radici, honorary president of Italy-based RadiciGroup S.p.A., died Oct. 5, 2005, in Leffe, Italy, at the age of 81.


Radici inherited the RadiciGroup — which began as a home textiles manufacturer — in the 1940s from his father, Pietro Radici, and was its president and CEO until the mid-1990s. He expanded the company internationally and led its growth into the fabrics, plastics, engineering, chemicals, packaging and textile machinery sectors.

Radici’s sons — Angelo, Maurizio and Paolo — now lead the group, which has 49 global production units and employs about 5,600 associates.
