With the resignation from the board of Assicurazioni Generali of the non-independent director, Francesco Gaetano Caltagirone, the risk is that a battle will start in Mediobanca. The economist Giulio Sapelli notes this. “The reasons for this gesture have not been made explicit so any allegation is arbitrary – Sapelli explains to AdnKronos – I must say, however, that it is a very extraordinary fact, because a shareholder who has 9%, who is leading a battle for the change of governance and business idea, strategy, is now resigning after not adding its objective … it seems to me that the part that emerges weakest from this decision is Mediobanca. “” At other times in its history – underlines Sapelli – Mediobanca has so that situations of this kind do not happen, it therefore seems to me that the question we must ask ourselves is not so much about Generali but about the role that Mediobanca is now able to play, which has always been one of the architraves of Italian capitalism. This is proof that it is no longer so, as we have known for a long time. “For Sapelli,” that such a thing happens is a serious matter, it means that there is no longer any possible mediation. Let’s say that if a capitalis if we are already weak and historically without capital, capitalism without interlocutors is added we become even poorer ”. In the immediate future, according to the economist, “a battle will certainly open up in Mediobanca”, because, he observes, “I believe that now, with the problems that have become manifest in Generali, it becomes impossible not to think that they do not also spill over into Mediobanca. The logical consequence should be this “. The resignation of Caltagirone for Sapelli “is a very very serious fact, especially for relations with foreign countries. Such news only adds to the fractal image of our capitalism, full of faults and divisions where people don’t talk. It is a very serious thing, especially in a situation like this, with the war and the post-pandemic “to face.
