A company’s dream. From Olivetti to Venture Capital: a life in Information Technology

Cod.: OLI0619

Fifty years of IT, telecommunications, and technological innovation: Elserino Piol, Italian technology guru and venture capital pioneer, recounts his 40 years of professional experience at Olivetti, the leading Italian IT company. From an insider’s point of view and thanks to an in-depth recollection, Piol reconstructs the history of Italy’s most distinctive industrial experience and paints a picture of the Italian IT sector, which is revealed to the reader as still inadequate and lagging behind. It is a testimonial that charts important chapters in the history of Italian industry and economy.
