Galileo Advisory was born in 2013 on the initiative of a group of young professionals and managers who aimed for the creation of a new reality in consulting with particular regard to PPP projects (Public Private Partnership) and renewable energy.

Following a number of changes, the company has developed its character, on the one hand confirming his original hypothesis, and on the other, thanks to the addition of new skills, expanding its range of action to other sectors of the economy and of the finance business.

These days the company is present in many areas with its activities and it is extending its scope of intervention, thanks to the partnership and cooperation with external expertises, with a particular philosophy of action: competence and concreteness.
