The Società Finanziaria Meccanica was established in 1948 by the Italian Institute for Industrial Reconstruction (IRI), with a mission to manage companies in the mechanic and building industry. While Finmeccanica changed organizationally several times in the course of time, it never betrayed its industrial vocation. Following a history of both successful and difficult moments, Finmeccanica is today focused on high technology: it has become the first Italian company with a global dimension in aerospace, defence and security sectors; it is one of the world leading operators in electronics for defence and helicopter industries; it is the European leader in satellite and space services, provided with consolidated energy and transport expertise.

The Fulbright Program was launched in 1946, in the aftermath of the Second World War, to promote peace through cultural exchanges between the U.S. and the other countries in the world. In Italy, the program was established two years later, in 1948; since then, over 7.000 scholars crossed the Ocean and succeeded with their work in the field of the Arts, Politics, Public Administration and Academia. The Program promotes study, research and teaching in the U.S. through the award of 130-140 scholarships every year.
