The curretn Fiat and Ferrari president John Elkann, paid a fitting tribute to Marchionne following the Italian's death earlier today. He said: "What was being feared has now happened. Sergio, a great man and a great friend is gone.

"I think the best way to honor his memory is to take advantage of the example he left us, and to cultivate those values ​​of humanity, responsibility and open-mindedness of which he has always been the most convinced promoter. I and my family will always be grateful to him for what he has done and we are close to Manuela and his sons Alessio and Tyler. Condolences to Sergio's family ".

Napoli president Aurelio di Laurentiis said:  "Marchionne was probably the greatest Italian manager of the last twenty years. A great loss to the business world".
