Once Upon A Time In The East of Belgium. In 2014 the Ford Motor Company decided to shut down the plant in Genk. For a few Euros more the factory was moved to Spain in 2015. On December 18th 2014 the last car rolled off the conveyor. Toni Uranio and his orchestra wrote "Ciao Mondeo", a dramatic farewell song sung in Italian for the factory's flagship, the Ford Mondeo. Toni and his Orchestra recorded a live version of the song on the abandoned parking of the factory on September 29th 2015.
