I developed several analyses on the Italian pension system, also in an international comparative perspective. By the methodological point of view, my contributions ever try to combine the normative and institutional approach with rigorous quantifications and simulations over the mid-long run. An other salient feature of my job regards the connections of pensions with the other parts of the welfare system, and in particular health care provisions for the elderly and long-term cares. Moreover, several works have been focused on the trade-off between adequacy of pensions and the sustainability of public finances. Combining these two goals requires to extend the analyses to labour market reforms and to the development of the multipillar pension system.

Beside this main duty, I was also involved, as assistant, in all the Initial Public Offerings that Mediobanca managed in that period (Telecom and Bnl were the biggest two).

The undergraduate thesis in "Bocconi" University regarded an estimation of fiscal facilities granted to Italian pension funds by the Law n. 124-1993. The Master thesis (Louvain-la-Neuve, Be) developed an overlapping generations model in which the presence and the structure of the pension system influence the endogenous accumulation of human capital and the dynamics of the entire economic system. This model has been further articulated in the Ph. D. (University of Sienna). Afterwards, pensions and the institutions of welfare systems have remained the main subjects I worked with. During my working experiences, since 1998, I have had the possibility to deal with pension issues under different point of views, all important to construct a wide and comprehensive vision. In Mediobanca S.p.A. (1998-1999) a was involved in offering consultancy to Italian pension funds about the normative and regulatory framework that the Covip (the Italian Pension Funds Authority) was at that time starting to design. In Isae (2000- 2001), my principal duties regarded impact evaluations of the process of reforms of the public and the private pension pillars. I was in charge of representing the Isae in the Bertlesmanns working group, e network that gathered several Centres of economic analyses to share information and data about welfare systems in Europe. During my collaboration with the Treasury (2001-2004, with some projected concluded in 2005), I was assistant in the works of the Ageing Working Group of EPC- ECOFIN,dealing with the evaluation of the impact of ageing on social expenditures, the projection of social expenditures in the mid-long run, and the incorporation of these projections in the judgement of public finances sustainability. For the Department of Treasury I performed an application of the so called "Gruber and Wise" methodology to the Italian pension system; this work was published as a chapter of the Dpef-2002 (under the supervision of Prof. Riccardo Faini). In CeRM (where I currently work) I am the person responsible for the analyses regarding pensions, health care and Ltc, and welfare system institutions. Among my recent works: (a) a proposal for accelerating the transition of the Italian pension system toward the full application of the notional capitalization rules (the so called "Dini" rules); (2) a simulation of the mid-long run effects of the over reliance on PYGO systems for financing pensions and health care provisions in Europe and Us (using the same methodology developed by Kotlikoff); (3) the proposal for a new instrument (we named it Welfare Fund), with many positive structural characteristics to play the role of providing at the same time complementary pensions and complementary health care covering. For this latter, an English version is available online to the following address: During almost ten years of works on pensions and welfare state themes, I matured attitudes to produce different types of documents: - creation and organization of datasets with underlining of stylized facts; - brief descriptions of data, also accompanied by tables and graphs; - analyses of data aiming at deriving policy implications; - overview of the structure of pensions systems and welfare systems, also in a evolutionary and a comparative perspective; - comparisons of best practices; - Country fiches with the descriptions of structure of welfare systems, the functioning of the various welfare institutions, the fiscal treatments, the source of financing ... - Country fiches with impact evaluations of reforms and changes in the legislative-normative framework; - position papers containing policy prescriptions; - slides and presentations for round tables; - collaboration to reports and books (as coauthor or as a contributor of a chapter, a paragraph or a box). 3
  4. 4. Other information Recently, I used regional data to compute regional per-capita profile of health care expenditure by sex and age. The goal was to select at most five Italian Regions that could provide standards of efficiency and adequacy to be applied to all other Regions. The paper, "Benchmarking between Regions using per-capita health care expenditure profiles", is downloadable at the following address: All computations have been developed using Excel routines. Analyses provided in the paper have been commissioned by the "Italian Commission for the implementation of Federalism" and offer the impact evaluation of the Decree n. 68-2011 (which aims at ruling the standardization of health care expenditure).Additional information :: WORKING PAPERS ::: "The Multipillar System for Health Care Financing:Thirteen Good Reasons for Open Capitalisation Funds, Covering both Pension and Health Care Provisions", CeRM position Paper available online (2011) “La nuova fiscalità della previdenza complementare per il lavoratore, l’impresa, l’Erario” (con F.
