From Seattle to Rome. Dinner Speech with Diego Piacentini

The Alumnus of the Year is Stefano Sassi, Valentino's CEO

The award goes to a "serial" Alumnus: he's a 1986 DES graduate and he also chose to attend an MBA at SDA Bocconi, graduating in 1990. For him, Bocconi has twice been the starting point of his career. Let's celebrate together on 21st October: registration for the gala dinner is open.
