On November 4, 2008 in Rome, Iveco delivered ten Massifs to Italy’s Civil Protection forces. The vehicles were handed over in a ceremony held in parallel with the press conference given by President of the Council of Ministers, Silvio Berlusconi, to present the programme for the G8 meeting to be held in Italy during the course of 2009. The ten Iveco Massifs will be used to provide logistic support for the meeting.
Also taking part in the press conference were Minister for Foreign Affairs Franco Frattini and Guido Bertolaso, head of the Department for Civil Protection and the man responsible for organising the G8 meeting. The 10 vehicles were handed over by Iveco CEO Paolo Monferino to Guido Bertolaso himself.
The Massif is the latest addition to the Iveco range and the company’s first real contribution to the lightweight off-road segment. The Massif is ideal for the challenges that our Civil Protection forces have to face on a daily basis. Designed and developed for the toughest missions and for professional off-road applications, the Massif is able to tackle even extreme off-road terrain with ease.
