"Behind the Screens" - Alberto Lanzavecchia

Current position: Researcher and Associate Professor


Institution: University of Padova (ITA)


Field of study and Research: Ethical finance, microfinance, small business finance.


Tell us a bit about yourself: After a career experience in corporate banking and

management consultancy, I decided to dedicate myself to teaching and research to unveil

harmful business practices and foster sustainability. I value the search for consciousness

and evidence-based action the basis of each educational project that I design or participate

in. My passions are traveling, hiking, and interact with new cultures to learn as much as I can from the different ways of living the world.


What do you like most about our field of practice: The intrinsic connection

between sustainability, human rights and innovative finance, to help me as a teacher

to learn more and transmit it to my students.


Favorite Quote: "And I will make public what little I have learned so that

someone, more experienced than myself, may suggest the truth, and with his

work prove and condemn my error. In this way, I will be able to rejoice, at least,

that I have been an instrument through which truth has come to light."

If you could be anyone from any time period who would it be and why: We are indeed many other living beings who lived in previous times: Nothing is created

nothing is destroyed everything is transformed!
