Stefania Bartolini drives her truck in the family business, which she opened with her husband, and which deals with transport for the agricultural and ceramics sectors. A career, that of the “Truck Driver of the Year 2020”, which began at a young age and which saw her grow with willpower and tenacity. “I started driving trucks when I was 19 – says Stefania Bartolini – when I asked if I could try to transport the fruit to the warehouse where I had been working as a forklift driver for a couple of years. I took my driving license C and got on the truck I never got off – Bartolini jokes -. For me it is really a great passion. When I’m behind the wheel of my truck, I feel good. It’s a job that makes me feel free and strong ”.
