General Manager of LUISS University of Rome.
I was born in Troia, in the province of Foggia, in 1970. A few months after completing the scientific high school, I won a scholarship to LUISS and graduated in Economics. After serving as an administrative official in the Army, I then worked in Bartolini as a branch manager, in the Italian Reinsurance Union and in Swiss Re, in the office of the CEO. In 2015 I was appointed independent Board member for doBank SpA. I am also a member of the Board of Administration for the magazines Internazionale and Formiche, the press agency Askanews, and the Foundations Gerardo Capriglione and Bruno Visentini. I am currently President of the Committee for Risks and Related Parts in doBank, Vice President of Pola Srl, Delegate Advisor for L.Campus SRL and CEO of L.Lab Srl.
On May 2018, I was appointed independent board member of Pirelli & C. S.p.A., member of the Committee for control, risk, sustainability and corporate governance and member of the Remuneration Committee.
I am also co-founder of the accelerator LuissEnlabs.
I have received the International Prize Icaro Daunia, the Prize Argos Hippium and the special Prize Nicola Zingarelli. I have recently received the solemn commend from the Frigento municipality and the Silver Rose from the Troia municipality.
I was declared Knight of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, and received the Prize Guido Carli, bestowed under the High Patronage of the President of the Republic.
I translated into Italian the book Jugaad Innovation in 2014, and Frugal Innovation in autumn 2016. Both books were published by Rubbettino Editore.
My book, Erostudente, published by Rubbettino Editore, will be available in stores from 25 May 2017.
