The project of the Institute for Advanced Studies and Cooperation is being founded and inspired thanks to a group of incredible, altruistic, special people, and Miss Luana Codigoni is certainly one of them. She is a philanthrope and an entrepreneur, a woman of family with ideals, and vision. We can rightly call her a fundamental role model and motivation for our work and commitment. She is behind so many projects and is always pushing towards the next. Miss Codigoni now moves independently on the international scene, where she has built a strong diplomatic network, after more than forty years in the multinational oil company ENI, where she dealt with external relations at the highest levels. We at IASC are grateful for such friends.
