The revolution also began in the CDP where, on June 1st, Dario Scannapieco took over from Fabrizio Palermo. The big games will likely take place in autumn, with the presentation of the industrial plan for the three-year period which will also determine any reorganization of the organization chart. But already in this first month after the changing of the guard, Via Goito has undertaken the transformation into a lever at the service of the NRP: more infrastructures, greater impetus for the digitization of the country and strategic support to its entrepreneurial fabric through the Relaunch or Destined Heritage. As for the first managerial lines, Scannapieco already has a box to fill: that of Vito Luca Lo Piccolo, former deputy general manager of Cdp Equity, who has joined Bank of America since the beginning of the month.
More specifically, on Friday the Relaunch Heritage became operational, a sort of sovereign fund launched in synergy with the NRP, fed by Treasury resources (the first contribution was 3 billion) and managed by Cdp, to intervene in support of the growth and capital strengthening of companies with a turnover of more than 50 million. The potentially interested companies would already be about a hundred.
The Autostrade per l’Italia dossier remains hot on Scannapieco’s desk: despite the fact that an agreement was reached with Atlantia in mid-June for the return to public ownership of the motorways, the concrete passage is about the beginning of 2022. And, in the in the meantime, with the start of the summer season, the construction site has returned, a matter that remains with the Benetton family holding company until closing. At the end of the month an app should be launched for reimbursements in case of inconvenience on the motorways. Certainly not a great comfort for those who, even this weekend, were found stuck on the Ligurian roads, for example.
Among the “problems” to be resolved there are also the game on Sace and the unresolved issue of the single network recently put on stand-by also by Vittorio Colao, Minister of Digital Transition, who was clear on the subject: “We must guarantee interest citizens, not specific companies “. As regards the credit insurance company of exporting companies, wholly controlled by Cdp and considered a pivot in the internationalization process of Italian companies, the return to the Treasury for 4.25 billion was expected (the reverse path had been carried out by Sace in 2011 for 3.72 billion). In theory, only a special decree from the Treasury is missing from March to complete the operation. There was talk of concerns raised by the Mef which, with 82% of the capital, controls the CDP. However, the release could be close, already by the summer.
If Cdp found itself putting the single network project on stand-by just as, ironically, it is preparing to rise to 60% of Open Fiber Cdp, with the PNRR the horizons of the cloud have opened. “At the moment there are working tables between Tim (9.81% owned by Cdp) and Open Fiber to understand if and how to carry out the project”, comments a source according to which Cdp is evaluating, always on the digital transition front , an alliance with Leonardo and Tim to manage the migration of PA data to the cloud. The structure of the agreement, also open to third parties (Fincantieri, another company controlled by Cdp was also interested in the cloud), would however be defined but the strategic issue with the NRP on the horizon is highly topical and profitable.
