The research aim is to investigate the relationship between financial literacy and behavior in the face of the growing challenge of Financial Technology. To do so, a financial education program for high school students called “Futuro Sicuro” was set-up to understand if it may change financial habits among millennials. This program provides two treatments at the class level, namely 1) a theoretical, rule-of-thumb based treatment with the presence of a financial advisor, and 2) a digitized treatment using an App and websites based on the learn-by-playing rule. The empirical research is carried out using data collected during the aforementioned program involving 650 students.
