Her name is Stefania Bartolini, and she lives in Imola in the province of Bologna, the winner of the eleventh edition of the Sabo Rosa prize, dedicated, on the occasion of the 8th of March, to women who work in the heavy transport chain: from driving to logistics, for workshops and spare parts dealers.

The winner was chosen by a jury made up of employees of our Group on the basis of the applications received via the Web and following an online vote. The numerous employees were present at the award ceremony, which took place in our headquarters in Castel Guelfo di Bologna, together with Elisabetta Nuti, financial director of the Group and president of the jury.

“This year the online vote and the jury agreed to award the Sabo Rosa to Stefania Bartolini to celebrate a career that is born from passion and grows with the recognition of a job well done – said Elisabetta Nuti -. Thanks to the eleventh edition of Sabo Rosa, we met a tenacious and energetic woman who, from a very young age, followed the words of her father who always advised her to listen to her heart. Stefania Bartolini is an example to follow in a world, that of freight transport, which still has a long way to go towards gender equality ”.

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 ”.
