Derthona Basket and Riccoboni Holding, a Silver Sponsor in the 2022-2023 Serie A championship, both share a love and respect for the region and its outstanding aspects.
Riccoboni joined the great team at Derthona Basket in 2020 and ever since then it has been passionately following the Lions with great interest, both on and off the court.
In 2021, the company wanted to celebrate its first year sponsoring the black-and-whites with a tribute to the city of Tortona, by donating 34 trees, the equivalent of the team’s total points that season. These trees were then planted around the Dellepiane theatre and swimming pool, helping redevelop the area as part of the social responsibility project for the environment and local communities where Riccoboni works as a promoter.
“We are absolutely delighted to keep supporting Derthona Basket on their journey,” explained Angelo Riccoboni, the CEO of Riccoboni Holding. “The team and club are showing real determination, a spirit of sacrifice and the vision to help this squad fight in every match so they can achieve important goals. In Riccoboni, we recognise sport’s ability to convey positive values and to generate genuine passion, which the whole community can rally behind, and this is why we are renewing our support with conviction for the Lions.”
“Riccoboni,” explained Ferencz Bartocci, the GM of Derthona Basket, “represents the benchmark for us for the PiantiAMO il Futuro initiative: we are keeping a watchful eye over everything involving sustainability and schools. Thanks to this collaboration at he peatk of the pandemic, we were able to once again savour the joy of getting together after the period of enforced isolation.”
