Federico Marchetti receives the “Premio America 2018” award

October 12, 2018

Today Federico Marchetti, founder and CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, received the Premio America 2018– a prize awarded by the Italy-USA Foundation which recognizes those who have achieved remarkable results in favor of relations between Italy and the United States.

The United States have always played an important role in Federico Marchetti’s personal and entrepreneurial path: from achieving an MBA to Columbia University, to landing YOOX in the USA in 2003 (which, to date, remains the first market for the Group).

The award ceremony was held today in the Chamber of Deputies, Parliamentary Assembly Hall, in Rome. Other Italian excellences were awarded along with Federico Marchetti, including fashion designer Alberta Ferretti, fencing champion Bebe Vio, entrepreneur Joe Bastianich and journalist Bruno Vespa.
