BOLOGNA, Italy — The Accademia del Profumo’s 24th annual fragrance awards were held on March 8 at the Teatro Auditorium Manzoni here, and the big winner of the night was the Trussardi My Land men’s fragrance, which went home with four awards.
More sober than in previous years, the ceremony opened with a panel discussion in which Il Sole 24 Ore journalist Paola Bottelli interviewed BolognaFiere president Duccio Campagnoli; Unipro president Fabio Rossello; Accademia president and Ferragamo Parfums chief executive officer Luciano Bertinelli; and Ermenegildo Zegna president Paolo Zegna, who is also on Confindustria’s technical committee for internationalization.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
