Sick for some time, the entrepreneur and artist died in his home in the hamlet of Godega di Sant ‘Urbano, this afternoon, on Saturday 8 February at around 18.30. His wife Adriana and children assist him.
Tomorrow, at 8 pm, the rosary will always be recited in the parish church of Bibano. And it is precisely in this church that a crucifix shows off itself and invites the faithful to pray. The work was sculpted by Bepi Da Re. Because he, in addition to being known worldwide for the Bibanesi, also cultivated a passion for art.
The news of his death spread immediately in the area and people were struck by it; indeed, the affection and esteem that many had towards him were great.
Born in 1943, Bepi was 76 years old. The family accompanied him in his work as an entrepreneur, starting with his wife Adriana. And today the children Francesca, Armando and Nicola continue the concreteness of an intuition that took off in 1987, with the production that wanted to bring the name of the country of origin to the world. It all began with a small family oven that was first transformed into a bakery and then into that company which over time has become “Venetian excellence”.
He has always repeated with pride that the Bibanesi, shaped like breadsticks but closer to bread as an idea, are handmade, one by one, thanks to the commitment of its employees.
In human relationships, friendliness has always combined sensitivity towards others, especially towards people in need. Because he believed sharing and the fact of circulating what was received, doing good to others, was important.
“Surely – says the mayor of Godega, Paola Guzzo, shortly after learning of the disappearance of Da Re – this is a news that saddens the whole community of Godega. Da Re was a very well-known person in our community for various reasons, starting with the important entrepreneurial path that led him to what is now the large company run by the family “.
“He was a person of great thickness from many points of view – continues Guzzo -. It is a loss for those who knew him. He was a loved and respected fellow citizen and many mourn his disappearance. An important personality is missing in this municipality for the professional and human profile, for his passions, starting with art and for the sensitivity he has always had towards society. His disappearance will also be deeply felt among fellow entrepreneurs who have had the opportunity to get to know him and appreciate his quality. The municipal administration expresses all its closeness to the family in this difficult and painful moment. A great reference point has failed “.
