 Sport – for passion, training, profession and assignments – is the constant fil rouge in Gian Luca Brasini’s career.


 Born in 1968, Gian Luca Brasini graduated from Bologna University with a degree in Trade and Economics, followed by a master in the Management of Sports Organisations. He now lives in Rimini with two children. Currently a member of the Board of Directors of Italian Exhibition Group Spa, quoted on the stock market, which includes sport among the pillars of its recently presented strategic plan.


As a sportsman, Brasini also wore the National Handball team’s blue jersey 45 times, a sport that, as a player, awarded him numerous titles including a championship and an Italian Cup.

 Currently the central manager of Maggioli Spa, Italy’s leading global service provider of application services and publishing solutions to local P.A. with a team of 2,600 people, 70 branches in Italy, 10 in Spain, and one each in Belgium, Greece and Colombia, Brasini held the position of councillor for the Municipality of Rimini between 2011 and 2021, with mandates for Human Resources, Financial Resources, Municipal Equity and Property, Investee Companies, Fundraising, and Sports Policies.

Brasini’s most recent assignments also include that of director at ATERSIR, Agency for the regulation of local environmental public services for the Emilia-Romagna region and that of chairman at ATEM (for which the Municipality of Rimini is contracting station, on behalf of 43 municipalities, for the licensing of the natural gas public distribution service).

Previous professional experiences have seen Brasini direct and expand an articulated multi-territorial DMC (Bologna, Ravenna and Florence), IF, which comprises 40 public and private partners, for which, among numerous other projects, Brasini developed the Tourism Hub at the ‘Enzo and Dino Ferrari’ motor racing circuit in Imola. These experiences also include the co-founding of “La terra dei Motori”, the only product club that deals exclusively with the tourist promotion and marketing of the most important places and events linked to the motoring tradition in Emilia-Romagna.

In the past, Brasini also worked with Ascom and accumulated extensive experience in marketing in the tourismhotel sector. However, his past also, and above all, includes a professional debut in the AC Club Fiorentina.


A past closely linked to the present: today, Gian Luca Brasini is marketing supervisor (advertising, sponsoring and TV broadcasting rights) of EHF Marketing GmbH, the company created specifically to manage the marketing rights of the Handball Champion’s League that is part of the Vienna-based EHF (European Handball Federation).
