30 Experts to Develop National Blockchain Infrastructure in Italy

Italy has made a successful effort towards blockchain inclusion and with its recently published list of 30 high-level experts to manage the development of its blockchain industry, things are finally taking shape for the European nation.

The recruitment process for competent personnel to manage “the development of the national strategy on technologies based on distributed registers and blockchain” began in September, when the Ministry of Economic Development published its expression of interest.

Three months later, the MISE has finally come up with a list dubbed “members of the expert group”. These experts are Italy-based and have been drawn from different fields as per the criterion of the initial request put forth in September, to include business, research centers, and the consumer world – all with sufficient knowledge on blockchain technology. The group is headed by the Minister or his delegate.

Notable personalities on the team include Angiolini Giorgio who has over 20 years of telecom experience and currently is the head of marketing portfolio, Italtel; Atzori Marcella, a member of the Board of Directors of the Blockchain & Society Policy Research Lab of the University of Amsterdam; Monaco Marco, leader of the Blockchain Competence Center of PWC Italy and responsible for the DLT security and Cryptocurrencies areas of PwC Global.

Back in September, the MISE said its priority is for the country to “know, deepen and address the issue of distributed ledger technologies (DLT) and blockchain, as well as increase public and private investments.”

The Deputy Prime Minister of Italy and Minister of Economic Development, Labour and Social Policies Luigi Di Maio has high optimism for the use of blockchain. He said in September that “emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain are destined to radically change our lives, the society in which we live and the economic and productive fabric of the country.”

Italy is taking positive steps in solidifying its place in the blockchain industry relative to other EU countries. It has also taken steps to protect its citizens against fraudulent crypto-related practices with recent public warnings issued alongside cease and desist orders to defaulters.
