Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic
In 2015 Massimo Malpighi, president guiding Acetaia Malpighi, received from the Prefect of Modena Michele Di Bari the honour for the activity carried out in the economic field: he was appointed Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
Massimo Malpighi, businessman and fifth generation of a family that has been producing the real Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena since 1850, was awarded the title of Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, the most important merit awarded in the professional field.
This appointment, signed by the president of the Italian Republic, was consigned on Monday the 21st December 2015 by the Prefect of Modena Michele Di Bari, confirming the prestige of a company that in the last few years has been able to export a product of excellence of the national and Emilian territory like the Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena on the markets all over the world.
The businessman, guiding the historic Modenese acetaia since 2005, thus officially enters in the group of the Knights of the Italian Republic, first among the national Orders, aimed to “reward merits acquired towards our Nation in the field of literature, arts, economy".
“I am proud of having received the Knight honour – Malpighi explains –. In these years I have worked really hard, together with my family and the precious staff of my company, to make people appreciate the quality of the Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena in Italy and abroad. This important title, that can be claimed also by the company, strengthens our role as global ambassadors of a product that is recognised everywhere as synonymous with Italian style, Emilian spirit, good food, excellence".
