Young successful entrepreneurs? This Town Award is for Antonio Moschetta, engineer, musician and entrepreneur from Andria, one of the most beautiful towns in Puglia.

Antonio was a model student but above all he managed to reconcile three mskill sets in a way that few can do. He is an engineer, but he is also a graduate of the conservatory and immediately started an entrepreneurial activity in music services and e gave demonstrations in the square.

But his curiosity led him to live some time in China and in Albania, where he lived with the eye of a researcher seeking opportunities. The filter with which he has always looked at situations abroad has led him to say:

“The real Albania and the real China are in Italy!”

With this phrase, Antonio Moschetta got ahead of  all his peers who were looking for fortune abroad because they could not see the opportunities that Italy offers.

Of course, if we look at the present situation with the lenses of our parents or with those of the generations that preceded us, we will not be able to understand what is happening.

All the directions are missing: what seemed like a stable situation then, today is a nightmare. We have lost the courage to try, to do something great.

And in the end the ventures present well the desire to do something big, something that breaks from the present situation to create something better. Obviously there are also companies of criminals, but of these we do not take care of ourselves and above all we do not take care of Antonio.

But back to Antonio Moschetta. I call him every time I want an injection of positivity, every time I look for ideas to change the route I’m navigating.

And Antonio continues to surprise me always, while in the meantime he has become a successful entrepreneur strongly rooted with his heart in his Puglia and especially in Andria.

The Prize to Antonio is a prize for young entrepreneurs and a recommendation to engage in the promotion of entrepreneurial culture among young people in order to create new businesses in Italy and not let the creativity of our young people go abroad.
