Originally from Italy, Antonio’s professional journey has taken him across diverse landscapes, having lived and worked in countries such as Holland, France, Finland, and Indonesia.

His well-rounded outlook, married to his flair for marrying technical expertise with business ambitions, is anticipated to be a linchpin in Advanced’s ongoing achievements.
