Rodolfo joined Pirelli Real Estate in 2000 as Head of Office Asset Management in Italy for a portfolio of €3.7 billion acquired by Pirelli Real Estate in a JV with MSREF (Morgan Stanley Real Estate Funds). Between 2003 and 2007 he has contributed, before as the Director of Funds and after as the CEO, to the start up and the development of the new fund management business of Pirelli Real Estate with a total portfolio of €5 billion. Between 2007 and 2009 he decided to pursue an enterpreneurial activity by joining, as a Partner, Realty Partners, a "boutique" real estate company active in the fund and asset management businesses. In 2009 Rodolfo re-joined Prelios (former Pirelli Real Estate) as CEO and Member of the Board. He also served as a Member of the Executive Committee of Assogestioni (the Italian association of the fund/investment management industry).
