Andrea Riello, a well-known entrepreneur and president of the Italian company of Riello Industries, died suddenly on Tuesday, September 13 following a heart attack. He was 60 years old.

Andrea Riello, President and CEO of Riello Industries, a company with operations in Italy, America, China and Poland, specialising in the manufacture of components for burners, air conditioners, solar panels and boilers, passed away following a heart attack at the age of just 60.

According to reports coming out of Italy on Wednesday, September 14, he was in one of the company’s factories when he collapsed to the ground after suffering a heart attack.

Governor of the Veneto Region in Italy, Luca Zaia, paid tribute on social media.

“The news of Andrea Riello’s sudden death strikes me and grieves me deeply,” he said.

“He was a man and an entrepreneur of great value and vision, capable of creating a leading company in his sector.

“He was always with a smile.

“An enlightened and committed entrepreneur whom I got to know and appreciate, particularly when he took over the presidency of Confindustria Veneto.

“His passing, so unexpected, leaves a void that is difficult to fill.”

The death of Italian entrepreneur Andrea Riello comes after the mother of a young 18-year-old lifeguard from Italy’s San Benedetto del Tronto urgently requested an autopsy after her son died suddenly after feeling ill on Saturday, September 10.

According to reports on Monday, September 12, Lorenzo Squillace, who had recently celebrated his 18th birthday, said he felt ill while at home and died at a local hospital.
