Danilo Iervolino, 43, Neapolitan Entrepreneur, originally from Palma Campania (in the province of Naples) was the founder of the Pegaso telematic university, the online university that today has over 60 offices throughout Italy. It was established in 2006, based on the most modern and efficient technological standards in the field of e-learning, but the idea of building such a project matured two years earlier, in the United States with a precise idea: to spread knowledge breaking down “every type of barrier, place and time”. It is (also) in this way that he has managed to carve out an important space in the field of training, holding various institutional positions both at a regional and national level.
The new President of Salernitana held the shares until last September when he also sold the remaining 50% to the CVC Fund for the sum of 1 billion euros. A few months later, net of the rumors of his possible entry into the world of football, he acquired 51% of Bfc Media, a company that operates in the information sector.
Macte animo has been the motto of the US Salernitana Fans since the year of its foundation. Macte animo, is the Latin expression that is an exhortation to have courage. Courage to go on despite everything, despite the ‘perilous waters’ and the dangers of the ‘waves’ of life. It is from here that the newborn company starts again with the impossible mission of transforming into reality (the Permanence in Serie A) what is a very hard undertaking.
The new era of Salernitana officially began when the trustees – having received all the guarantees accompanying the proposal, starting with the payment of the deposit of 500 thousand euros – accepted the offer and transmitted to the FIGC the communication that Danilo Iervolino’s project is was considered the most congruous, solid, concrete for the future of the company. An initial investment of 10 million euros will be followed by another 20 for day-to-day management until the end of the season.
