They are not brothers, nor are they completely related, yet Claudio and Stefano Domenicali, respectively CEO of Ducati and Lamborghini, have taken the same decision: to close down for the Coronavirus emergency.
Ducati will remain closed until at least the beginning of next week. These days, in fact, the Borgo Panigale-based company has been busy reorganizing its production lines to allow workers to maintain safety distances.
Even in the offices, about half of the employees are engaged in telework. A choice made in agreement with the unions, with the aim of gradually reopening some departments in the following days with reduced shifts, which, as we said, will be adapted to the safety regulations for the Coronavirus emergency. At this time Ducati was at the peak of production.
Even more draconian was the choice of Lamborghini, which in fact decided to close until March 25 more than 1800 people will stay at home.
"This measure is an act of social responsibility and great sensitivity towards our people, for the emergency situation that we are experiencing in Italy these days and which is also developing abroad - said Stefano Domenicali - As we have already done so far, we continue to monitor the situation in order to react quickly and effectively with the support of our staff and to be able to start again with energy at the right time".
Ferrari, in the words of CEO Louis Camilleri, said: "We have put in place extraordinary measures to ensure that everyone has working conditions that are better suited to the situation, without losing sight of the company's continuity. But I want to reassure you: if we need to do more, we will do it".
