Nobels ColloqueLogoConnecting brains that is the original and winning idea that our Founder and Chairman Giovanni Battista Vescovo has founded the success of PROMOSTUDIO and of its annual event Nobels Colloquia® on.

PROMOSTUDIO is the all Italian, „piccola ma bella“ (small but lean and nice), consulting company that was founded in 1985 in Venice, specialized in executive education, finance and economics.
PROMOSTUDIO delivers the most advanced and innovative management techniques, as well as the most fascinating thoughts of the best international economists to the professional and entrepreneurial worlds.
The idea was born of the fruitful encounter with MIT professor Franco Modigliani, the 1985 Nobel Laureate in Economics, whom Vescovo had a very close professional and personal collaboration with, until 2003.

Again, the idea of an international event that involves several Nobel Laureates in Economics as well as renown economists, was conceived together with Franco Modigliani, but also with Robert Solow and Amartya Sen: a venue where such minds can meet, debate, and exchange ideas on current topics. The idea took inspiration of Edgar Morin’s thought „Challenging Ideas for a Common Destiny“.
In 2001, on the occasion of the 100 years of the Nobel Foundation, PROMOSTUDIO organized the first edition of Nobels Colloquia® where 12 Nobel Laureates joined, flying in from directly from Stockholm.

Our partner for EC and middle east are the European Board of Trade (Brussles) and the Academic Institute, located in Salzburg.
