FBT co-founder Bruno Baldoni passes away
WORLD: One of the co-founders of Italian loudspeaker manufacturer FBT, Bruno Baldoni, has passed away peacefully at the age of 88. Much loved and highly respected by all he knew, Mr Baldoni’s death comes just one month after his friend and business partner, Vinicio Tanoni.
Mr Tanoni and Mr Baldoni established FBT in 1963 and a statement from the company credits the pair with ‘helping to lay the foundations of the modern music and audio industries. Their partnership was one of mutual understanding – Mr Tanoni, the meticulous engineer, and Mr Baldoni, the passionate audio enthusiast who saw the future they would create together. Yet as strong as FBT grew, in his heart, Mr Baldoni was inspired simply by his love of music and sound. Today, it is our great honour to follow his example and continue the work of these two extraordinary men.’
