Historically Italy has not only played a determining role in the development of the Mediterranean area, but has also founded a whole new way in which the West views the world and itself, giving birth to an essential cultural movement in Europe in the XV-XVI centuries: the “Rinascimento,” or Renaissance.
During that period, Italy and Europe, with the discovery of America, opened themselves to the “new world”. In doing so, they boosted their economies thanks to the intensification of international commercial trades.
This international trade has developed for centuries, thereby building a solid foundation in international commerce and positioning the nation as an elite competitor with first-class products.
Today Italy is also renowned in the world thanks to its brands, frequently ranked first in all the productive sectors.
The secondary Italian sector is dominated by a considerable number of small and medium enterprises, which guarantee the highest quality implied by the “made in Italy” brand.
