A precursor: Telespazio
  • Perhaps the first historical example of public-private partnership in the modern telecommunication field
  • In Argentina,the news about the armistice at the end of the first world war reached our italian emigrants with delay, causing lot of disappointment
  • On the wave of that disappointment, in 1921 Giovanni Carosio, with a public subscription of the italianimmigrants in Argentina, founded the CompagniaItalianadeiCaviTelefoniciSottomarini
  • In 1961 the private Italcable decided to enter the satellite business even before the launch of the first telecomm satellite; to obtain the concession Italcable reached an agreement with the public RAI
  • The two enablers for the first time together: the ownership of the infrastructure and the permission to use it as a public resource

  • Trends:
    • Increasinglyused in infrastructuresectors
      • Governmentsrequire alternative forms of infrastructure service provision due to issuesinvolving public funding, operationalefficiency and risk
    • Some sectorsabroadnowmainlydriven by PPP models (road, utilities…)
    • Complexcontractmodelsrequiringsignificantcoordinationefforts
    • Some contractualmodels (e.g. BOOT – Build, Own, Operate and Transfer) havegained more interestthanothers and thusbecame standard models

ppp models 1
PPP models - 1

PPPs span a spectrum of models that progressively engage the expertise or capital of the private sector:

At one end, there is a straight contracting out as an alternative to traditionally delivered public services, based on direct execution or labour

At the other end, there are arrangements that are publicly administered but within a framework that allows for private finance, design, building, operation, maintenance and temporary ownership

PPP experiences in ASI- 1


The first PPP ASI program: itincludedtwo Ka telecommsats, launched in ‘91 and ‘96

The business model was a PPP precursor, implemented by both ASI and Telecom Italia

ASI wasresponsible for space & ground control segmentdevelopment, F1 manufacturing and launch, and F2 manufacturing

Telecom Italia wasresponsible of F2 launch and groundtrafficsegmentdevelopment

Operations and services marketing were under Telespazio / Telecom Italia responsibiity

Disasterrecovery in case of major outages of the fiber network

Redundancy for missioncriticaland life criticalservices

Theater telcos for peacekeepingand peaceenforcementmissions

perspectives for italian russian cooperation
Perspectives for Italian Russian cooperation
  • The PPP approach, demonstrating its effectiveness in the Italian and European space sector, can well be exploited for a Russian – Italian cooperation in the fields of telecom, Earth Observation and satellite navigation
  • ASI already started a number of discussions with its Russian counterparts, in the field of satellite projects, fostering a PPP approach (e.g. the Arctica system, oriented towards Arctic observation and mobile airplanes satcom on polar routes)
  • ASI, based on its mission in Italy, can channelize the italian industry and investors towards PPPs with Russian public and private space sector, and viceversa
