From ACIMAC a Special Lifetime Achievement Award for Giuliano Mussini, founder of Panariagroup.


A prestigious and special Award was conferred by ACIMAC on the occasion of Tecna 2022, the famous International Exhibition of Technologies and Supplies for Surfaces (formerly Tecnargilla): Giuliano Mussini was awarded for “the unquestionable contribution made over 50 years of experience to the Italian ceramic industry”.



In line with the themes that characterised the 2022 Tecna edition – innovation, sustainability, and digitalisation – Mr. Giuliano Mussini was awarded for the exceptional results achieved by Panariagroup, his company, which has been able to keep alive the values and vision promoted by him since 1974.


Each year, the TecnAwards recognise the best technological investments made by international companies with a specific focus on the resilience demonstrated by companies in the post-pandemic period and intend to act as a bridge between the world of supply and that of ceramic production. The award, conceived by ACIMAC – Associazione Costruttori Italiani Macchine e Attrezzature per Ceramica (Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics) – wishes, in particular, to honor entrepreneurs and managers who, thanks to their work and ideas, have contributed to the development of the Italian manufacturing and ceramics market, promoting its growth in Italy and abroad.


The award, conferred to a ceramic pioneer like Giuliano Mussini, underlines the value of a family business that has always remained consistent with the values that founded it, with the territory from which it originated and propagated, and with the passion for the product, all of which are fundamental elements of the best Made in Italy.


This award to its founder’s capacity for innovation and investment confirms for Panariagroup the solid foundations that have determined its leadership on research and development as well as industrial and technological evolution and that have led it to be constantly at the forefront among ceramic companies.
