She was born near Cuneo in 1935. She graduated from the University in Turin with a degree Economics. Her adventure in the world of new technologies began with a job in the Electronics Division of Olivetti. She is immediately a well-respected manager at national and international level for his decision-making, ability and skills. She took very few years to achieve important professional challenges: In 1963 Olivetti decided to sell the electronic division to General Electric and she took care of the transaction. In 1979 she was appointed as Chairman of Olivetti Corporation of America. In 1981 she returned to Italy to take the reins of Italtel. In those years, Italtel was passing through a phase of acute recession: it was a colossal company housing over 30,000 employees and 30 electromechanical companies which were either obsolete and facing serious loss. As CEO, Marisa was obliged to make courageous difficult and farsighted choices. Marisa succeeded in the miracle of transforming a conglomerate of diverse and numerous plants into a modern, dynamic and innovative electronic company. It was a clear cut managerial success story which was written into the manuals of economics as an example of restructuring a public company. Her capabilities and accomplishments garnered the award for manager of the year in 1986. Hers is the first woman career, in our country, in the world of telecommunications and information technology.
