The Establishment of IDA – Italian Datacenter Association
Studio Rock advised on the establishment of the Italian Datacenter Association (IDA), the first non-profit association in Italy that brings together data centre builders and operators.
IDA was founded in Milan in December 2022 by eight partners representing some of the main companies in the sector: Microsoft, Equinix, Rai Way, Data4, STACK EMEA Infrastructure, Digital Realty, Vantage Data Centers and CBRE Data Centers. IDA is well-placed to establish itself as the voice of Italian data centres at an institutional level.
Studio Rock’s third sector team advised on IDA’s establishment from beginning to end, led by equity partner Paola Favati and supported by associate Michele Guerrieri. The studio will continue to fill the role of tax and legal consultant for IDA moving forwards.
