  • Demetrio MiglioratiHead of Blockchain at Banca Mediolanum

    Demetrio is passionate about blockchain, innovation, change, startups, technologies, paradigms, paradoxes, languages, cultures and diversity. He built his experience starting from the information technology industry, converting to finance/insurance in one of the most dynamic and complex Italian banking and insurance groups. He is the classic “early adopter“ so it’s likely that he’s got already that “new weird thing“ that you saw the other day on a Chinese website. Serial innovator, he’s luckily left with that “sense of precariousness” typical of those who have worked with immature technologies for a long time, so he tends to test everything by himself before promoting a solution or a technology.
