Marco Fanno Association
The Marco Fanno Association was established in 1993, thirty years after Professor Giannino Parravicini, then Chairman of Mediocredito, started a scholarship programme of specialisation in economics and finance to study at the most prestigious foreign universities.
The general aim of the Association is to promote academic studies and scientific research in economics and finance, to maintain and promote contacts between members, to contribute to the development of cultural exchanges with institutions with similar purposes and to propose scientific and cultural initiatives in the field of economics and finance.
The Association brings together all those who, over the years, have won, a scholarship launched by Mediocredito Centrale. Among the ex-Fellows, the Association includes very important academics and finance managers, such as: Mario Draghi, Michele Salvati, Ignazio Visco, Alessandro Penati, Gabriele Galateri, Claudio Dematté, Giorgio Barba Navaretti, Pietro Modiano and many others.
On 18 July 2012, the Marco Fanno Association signed a collaboration agreement with UniCredit & Universities Foundation with the main purpose of continuing the long tradition of supporting the best students by launching scholarships named after distinguished economist Marco Fanno.
Thanks to this agreement, the Marco Fanno Association, can also meet among its Alumni all past winners of the scholarships and fellowships launched by UniCredit & Universities and now by UniCredit Foundation. The Association currently has around 380 members.
