Metroweb president meets Vivendi chairman

Friday 10 July 2015 | 09:35 CET | News
The outgoing president of CDP and president of Metroweb, Franco Bassanini, met Vivendi chairman Arnaud de Puyfontaine, according to a tweet from the journalist Francesco Print Spini republished by Bassanini. The reporter asked if the meeting was the first step towards a partnership between Metroweb and Telecom Italia, given Vivendi's new role as the largest shareholder in TI. Bassanini is set to step down from the state lender CDP but will remain at the head of Metroweb. De Puyfontaine also met in Italy with government ministers to discuss Vivendi's plans for Telecom Italia.
