Casta Diva Group, the multinational active in the communication sector and listed on Italy’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM Italia), welcomes Massimiliano Prato to the team as Chief Operating Officer.

Born in Milan in 1975, Massimiliano Prato graduated in Communication and immediately began his career with a position at Clip Television (part of FilmMaster Group), moving on to Mediaset, DPR Events, Euphon, Poste Italiane, Jakala Events and Alessandro Rosso Group.

“Last year Casta Diva Group embarked on a period of major expansion, both nationally and internationally,” say Andrea De Micheli and Luca Oddo, respectively CEO and President of Casta Diva Group. “In 2016 we appointed Paolo Perrotta, with his long experience at Fox, as Chief Financial Officer, and today we complete the team with Massimiliano Prato as COO. Max has worked in video production, events management and venues both well established and new, with particular focus on the creation of new formats in the food and beverage sector. These are precisely the three areas at the heart of our Group, with Casta Diva Pictures and Anteprima Video on the one hand, and Egg Events and Blue Note Milano on the other. His appointment means we can now dedicate more time and energy to developing key clients and towards acquisitions, while Max will mainly concentrate on optimising procedures and on the efficiency of individual projects.”

“It’s really exciting to be part of Casta Diva Group at this particular time,” declared Massimiliano Prato, “when under the watchful guidance of Andrea De Micheli and Luca Oddo, younger managerial staff with already some solid experience behind them are being given opportunities to extend themselves. The company’s objective is to unearth new talent, and then stimulate and implement each person’s abilities in a culture of continual innovation in events and entertainment.”
