The award is named in honour of the late engineer Egidio Capaccini, who was a prominent figure in Pieve Santo Stefano. After actively contributing to the post-war reconstruction of the town, which was destroyed by the mines of the retreating German army, Capaccini emigrated to Argentina in the late 1940s. He returned to Italy in the 1960s and founded TRATOS CAVI, which has become one of the best and most innovative businesses in Italy and the UK. The company, which is a source of employment for many people in some of the most depressed areas of Italy and the UK, is a real treasure and a success story, thanks to the vision of President Ing Albano Bragagni and the dedication of Bragagni family members.
