Julian Stefenelli, born and raised in Germany, studied Law in Passau and in Milan. Since the beginning of his university studies he has been nourishing a great interest for Italy and the Italian Law and, due to this passion, he often has cooperated, also for longer periods, with Italian law offices. Before starting his working activities at Villa Vigoni in 2009, he was employed in a German-Italian commercial law office in Munich. At the same time, he did his PhD with a thesis on the creditors' protection system in the Italian Law (Gläubigerschutz im italienischen Recht, ed. Peter Lang, Frankfurt 2008).
The binational orientation which characterizes his work at Villa Vigoni offers him the opportunity to use his previous professional experiences to foster the German-Italian relationships. He is in charge of all legal questions regarding Villa Vigoni and is responsible for the property administration. In addition, he is also concerned with the organization and realization of meetings regarding legal aspects.
