Luigi Barghini is 49 years old. He’s from a small town in the north of Italy and lives with his wife, Sofia, in a beautiful villa outside Verona. He has a lot of money because he owns a big factory that supplies car seats to Fiat in Turin. Luigi is the chairman of the company, but his daughter, Ana, is the managing director. She takes care of the day-to-day business, while Luigi spends a lot of his time visiting different members of the Agnelli family that owns Fiat. He also spends a lot of time in Germany, because his company is negotiating with Mercedes Benz a big contract to supply car seats for the small models that Mercedes makes in Stuttgart. He is a very busy man, but he enjoys his work. When he’s at his villa near Verona, he always goes to the factory, 23 kilometers away, to see his daughter and to visit with the workers. He probably spends at least three hours on the floor of the factory talking with workers, inviting them to coffee, telling jokes, and having a good time. He likes the people in the north of Italy and really enjoys human contact. That’s probably the reason why his company is strong and healthy. He doesn’t consider that his work is a job. He considers it a game, something that he likes to play. Of course, he wants to win and he wins, but he has a good disposition all the time and he doesn’t like to take things too seriously. His daughter, Ana, is different, but she is a manager, not an owner.
