Project Management Report from Milan

Milan, Italy


The beginning of the new year has been full of initiatives and events. The grand opening of Expo is approaching, less than three months to the start of the world most attractive event of 2015. In February it took place the meeting Idee per Expo, an initiative that has raised more than 500 experts around the world, who have participated in 42 working tables about the main themes related to the international exibition.

If Expo is now the present, the future will see once again the possibility to have Italy as protagonist of another major event. Luca Cordero di Montezemolo will be the Chairman of the Organizing Committee for the candidature of Rome to the Olympic Games of 2024. This is a new challenge for the Italian manager who has always been involved in sport initiatives.

Within the main news we also report about the renewal of the national board of IPMA Italy. The election saw the appointment of new figures from real excellence of industry and academia that will surely give new luster to the association. Definitely a big thanks to the outgoing President Roberto Mori for the excellent work done over the years both nationally and internationally.

Inside you’ll find these and other news. Have a good time!!!
