The Ceramic World Mourns Ivanno Ligabue

Founder and chairman of ACIMAC – Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics from 1996–2000, Ivanno Ligabue, who was also founder and guiding force of the company LB, was one of the most gifted and brilliant entrepreneurs in the Sassuolo ceramic district.

Ivanno Ligabue had the typical brilliance of a great generation of entrepreneurs coupled with a natural warmth and charisma that enabled him to build authentic human relationships based on respect and mutual esteem. And thanks to his charming, straightforward nature, he would frequently conclude a discussion or institutional event with a joke and a smile. Ivanno Ligabue, well-known entrepreneur from Sassuolo, died on 8 June 2016 at the age of 67 after a long illness. “Ivanno will be remembered for the enormous contribution he made to our industry’s world leadership position,” confirmed Fabio Tarozzi, ACIMAC’s Chairman. “We worked together for many years on the association’s executive boards, where he always enlivened discussions with his wit, intelligence and humour. He achieved great business success by being the first to understand that what our customers purchase is an idea for a finished product rather than just a machine. He helped the ceramic industry make a big step forward by focusing on constant innovation and the aesthetic value of products.”
