Moreover, before joining Intesa Sanpaolo Group, he worked for UniCredit Group in the Corporate and Investment Banking Division. On the other hand, in March 2014 he was awarded a Ph.D. in Economic Sciences by the Polytechnic University of Marche (Faculty of Economics “Giorgio Fuà”, Ancona - Italy), with a specialization in empirical banking and finance.
