My relationship with Ad Hoc coincided with my entry into politics and that experience would have been impossible without the professionalism of Ad Hoc. So, I want to send my good wishes to Mario Pellegatta the strategist, Giorgio Zambeletti the tactician and a long-time friend, Pietro Cavalletti who epitomises the certainty that Ad Hoc is always there when needed, Ivan Barbieri and all the staff. Hooray for 25 years and best wishes for many more years of success!
