In tune with Stefan Milenkovic
In our podcast, the world-renowned violinist talks about his music, his collaborations – and fronting the new Banca Intesa ad campaign
By the time he was 14 he’d performed for a president and a pope. Since then he’s become an internationally sought-after soloist. Now Stefan Milenkovic, one of the foremost violinists of our era, features in Banca Intesa’s new multimedia advertising campaign.
“It is not something you choose to do, it really chooses you,” he says of his art on the latest Intesa Sanpaolo talks podcast. “I was born into a musical family. When I was three years old, I accepted the violin into my life and I have never stopped since.”
“When you embark on such a journey – and you are brave enough and creative enough to think about this kind of relationship – and it is a success, I feel we can absolutely boast about it.”

The multimedia campaign is the result of an inspired collaboration between the bank and the artist. In it, Stefan is featured showing the bank’s new technological innovations to customers.
He’s pleased with the results. “When you embark on such a journey – and you are brave enough and creative enough to think about this kind of relationship – and it is a success, I feel we can absolutely boast about it,” he says. “Because it’s not easy in any sense. These are two very different worlds that have managed to connect because they share similar values.”
“We share the same values – such as integrity, responsibility, transparency – that we found in Stefan. Our relationship is human”

Our relationship is human,” she says.
