COVID-19

The COVID-19 virus has practically spread all over the world and its growth curve is unfortunately still exponentially growing in many Countries. The "Club of Bologna" is a team of world experts in Agricultural Machinery and Mechanization, but first of all it is a group of people among whom a strong friendship has been established since a long time. So we really hope to find all the Members, their families, their friends, everbody in full health. We expect this situation will end soon and this terrible experience -that will have enormous economic, technical and social impacts all over the world- will serve as a warning for the future.

Due to the situation linked to the spread of Covid-19 in Italy, at the end of May-beginning of June we will send you both the Agenda of the 30th Members' Meeting (Nov 15-16, 2020), and the communication of the start of the online registration procedure to attend the meeting.
 
Stay safe, take care and stay at home.

The President, The Secretary General and FederUnacoma

Dr. Arne Møller

This morning we received the sad news that Dr. Arne Møller – Full Member of the “Club of Bologna” – died.
Arne always participated in Club’s meetings with enthusiasm offering us his valuable experience in the agricultural mechanization field. He always joined us with a smile becoming, even before a Colleague, a friend.

We will remember him. May his soul rest in peace.
