Luigi Barghini spent three days in Germany last week. He flew to Stuttgart with his daughter, Ana, the general manager of Luigi’s company. They stayed in the Regency Hotel. On the first day, they had a meeting in the morning with die chairman of Mercedes Benz. The meeting started at 11:00 a.m. and lasted 45 minutes. They spent a lot of the 45 minutes talking about the Agnelli family at Fiat. At 12:00 o’clock, Luigi and Ana had lunch with the chairman and with the managing director in the private dining room on the top floor. They talked about the market situation for luxury cars and about the competition from Japanese models. After lunch, Luigi and Ana went back to the hotel and spent two hours planning the three meetings for the next day. In the evening, they had dinner with the purchasing manager of Mercedes, Karl Polster. Karl knew Ana very well because the two companies were negotiating a contract for car seats. Karl was 34 years old and single and he liked Ana very much. He was in favor of working with Luigi’s company because he wanted to continue seeing Ana as much as possible. She was beautiful and rich. He knew that she was single but he didn’t know if she had a relationship with anyone in Italy. During the dinner, Luigi noticed that Karl was paying a lot of attention to Ana, but he didn’t say anything to his daughter later that night. He wanted to concentrate on the important meetings for the next day.
