On Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at the Cesena Fair, the “Excelsa 2019 Confindustria Romagna Award” ceremony was held, where every year the most excellent entrepreneurial initiatives in Romagna are recognized. Therefore, have been rewarded that by applying for one of the six categories of environment and security, communication and marketing, innovation, internationalization and human resources, have contributed to the economic and social development of the territory. At the end of the ceremony were awarded companies that took part in the special social-cultural category.
In this occasion, the Dosi Group, represented by the owner Mr . Alberto Dosi, has been recognized as the winner of the prestigious “social-cultural” category, presenting the Air Finders “humanitarian history” museum.
The Air Finders “humanitarian history” museum is the headquarters of the association Raf – Romagna Air Finders, formed by a group of people moved by a common spirit of volunteering, for research and recovery of World War II airplanes and human compassion of their pilots and crews. From that first and unforgettable find on August 13th 1998, the association brought to light 18 shot down planes, and the bodies of 8 pilots: three Germans, two British, one Brazilian and two Italians, to whom the funeral services were celebrated with military and civil honors.
Thanks to the hospitality of the Dosi family, the Romagna Air Finders Museum was able to find its perfect location in Fusignano, giving new life to what once was the workshop of Angelo Dosi, grandfather and predecessor of the current CEO of Dosi Srl, Mr. Alberto Dosi. Mr. Dosi is really proud of this iniziative and said “There is no better result, than to be able to see a place of my childhood, loved by me as much as the man who created it, my grandfather, who gave me the passion for this work and the company values that have always guided me “. Through this donation therefore, not only the association Raf can continue to carry on its commendable cause, but the whole territory benefits from the presence of a unique museum of its kind, which combines the recovery of finds and heroes landed on our territory with the ethical, social and human value. A work that enriches the cultural heritage of this region.
