Governance System

To be truly efficient and ensure the absence of conflicts of interest or other risks, the governance system must be based on a governance structure that is able to ensure that the individual roles are clearly defined and kept separate.

In this perspective, our governance structure adopts a traditional system of administration and control based on the functional organisation of three independent bodies:

  • The Board of Directors
  • The Board of Auditors
  • A number of Internal Committees.
