Not to be outdone by the New York Stock Exchange, which has agreed to merge with pan-European exchange Euronext, Borsa Italiana has started to court merger partners, meeting with Euronext this week. Although often thought of as more low key than its rivals in the Italian market, Chiomenti Studio Legale has bagged the role of sole legal adviser to Borsa Italiana.
