Senior Director @ EssilorLuxottica | Consigliere @ Cerved

Speaking Sessions


Born in 1976, Elvina Finzi holds a double degree with honors from  Polytechnic in Milan and from the ENSTA in Paris and a PhD in Nuclear Engineering, designing an innovative nuclear reactor solution for a future human base on Mars.

In the end she did not make it come true, but only for now: no one knows what the future will hold. After working on applied research and special projects for a leading global appliance industry, she currently works for the largest lens and eyewear manufacturer in the world. She understands the importance of striving for real gender equality.

She inherited from her mother, a scientist, the sense of challenge and an equally obstinate dedication to work. They published a book together, “Oltre le stelle più lontane”(Mondadori, 2021), to remind girls that STEM disciplines can offer them job opportunities that they won’t want to miss.
