The Money
  • Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, the Italian state bank, has a new head, Dario Scannapieco.
  • CDP Venture Capital announced a €40m investment in the creation of RoboIT, a tech transfer park specialized in robotics. The project involves a network of universities (Università di Napoli Federico II, Università degli Studi di Verona, and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna di Pisa), the IIT, Leonardo SpA, and investors such as Pariter Partners, Cysero EuVeca, and Eureka!

Ending notes
The ENEA Tech drama that I spoke about in the last issue 🇮🇹unfolded during the week, as the proposal to pivot the foundation into investing in vaccine research was confirmed by the government. The official website already has a new “change in progress” landing page. Another proof of the inconsistency of our government that I would like not to witness anymore.
Have a great week, and keep pushing!
