And the reference shareholder is 50% owned by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance and 50% by Bpifrance Participations (management body of French state equity investments controlled by the French Deposits and Loans Fund).
WHAT REPORT SAYS
According to Report by Sigfrido Ranucci, in Catania in recent days behind the front row where the Minister of Enterprise and Made in Italy is seated, Adolfo Urso (Fratelli d'Italia), and the French administrator Jean-Marc Chery appears Carmen Zizza, manager and communicator, for weeks indicated as a sort of rising star in state subsidiaries.
THE FIRST NEWS ABOUT CARMEN ZIZZA ASTRO NASCENTE IN THE STATE SUBSIDIARIES
According to what both Corriere della sera and the Repubblica newspaper wrote last December, in a meeting convened by the government to agree on a solution for the Tim network, between the new consultants of the French group Vivendi – the largest shareholder of the Tim group – and of Rothschild there were Carmen Zizza and Daniele Ruvinetti ( the consultant's first moves do not seem to be having success on Palazzo Chigi ).
THE ROLES OF ZIZZA AND RUVINETTI
Start Magazine wrote months ago: "Carmen Zizza – as can be read on social media – is a "relationship at Eats" and a "relationship consultant at Medtronic", a company active "in technology, solutions and medical services". She is a consultant to Rothschild, in excellent relations with the investment banker Alessandro Daffina (number one of Rothschild Italy) and is considered close to the minister Adolfo Urso. Years ago Zizza was general manager of Asam (Environmental Services Company), a “holding company set up by the Province of Milan in 1995 and then passed under the control of the Lombardy Region with the closure of the institution”; assignment interrupted in a way told by an article in the Corriere della sera dated January 2015 still on the web ".
ZIZZA, DAFFINA AND STM
“StM – wrote Fatto Quotidiano today in a preview of the Rai3 broadcast – was convinced to write her a check for 6,000 euros a month on the advice of Alessandro Daffina of Rothschild (former Youth Front and old acquaintance of Urso) who he also signed a reference letter for Zizza.
MINISTER URSO'S REPLY TO REPORT
This is what Minister Urso (former president of Copasir) replied to the insistent and frantic solicitations of the correspondent of the Report transmission: “I'm not talking about the activity of Copasir. I'm not talking about what we have ascertained in the Committee. It is a bond of secrecy. What we have ascertained on Report in the Committee I am not talking about it. I'm not talking about what we've ascertained from the hearings we've held about Copasir, we're not talking about the Committee. I have already told you that I cannot speak about the activity of the Committee on Report , or rather the complaints made by a parliamentarian on Report ".
THE STM DOSSIER AND THE FACTIONS IN THE SERVICES
However, on Stm there is a delicate course that cuts through the economy, industry, technology and geopolitics. A dossier on which Service circles discuss and in part divide. The giant St Microelectronics – according to pro-US observers – is quite exposed to China, is worried about the worsening of relations between the West and China, and continues to forge agreements with Chinese customers.
STM'S CHINESE COLLABORATIONS
The latest agreement dates back to a few days ago, with the Chinese Chery: the Chinese automotive group Chery Group has in fact entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with STMicroelectronics: a technological cooperation aimed at the supply of semiconductors by the Italian-French group to improve performance of the cars of the Chinese manufacturer which has launched an expansion plan towards Europe with its own brands.
USA WIRE PUFFS ON STM
Among the Italian services sectors that are more pro-US and Japanese , one wonders : is it a good deal to field St Microelectronics? The question arises from what was reported in recent days by the Sole 24 Ore : “«Italy is ready to collaborate with Japan», Meloni allegedly assured Kishida. An Italian government delegation will arrive in Tokyo on May 24 to meet the Ministry of Industry and trade associations. The aim is to lay the foundations for a collaboration between the Italian center and Japanese companies”, wrote the Confindustria newspaper.
Certainly the St Microelectronics dossier will reserve other news, not just journalistic.
