Commerce& Industry in Each Region

As small as the total land area in Italy is, compared to other countries, the individual regions vary greatly from region to region, in land form, soil structure and mountians. They were historically regionalized for this reason, due to their land formation and originally the individual states were ruled by counts, barons, princes and popes before unification in 1870.

Commerce and industry in the regions originated from agriculture and the artisan arts and crafts, foodstuffs, cheeses, salamis and many meat and smallgood products from the beef and milk industry. These food productions are also historically based due to many of the cheeses and dried meat products being produced to feed the people through the long cold winters when vegetables were not freely available.

With the onset of industrialization, areas in the north of italy succeeded more than their agriculture based southern counterparts for many reasons but the devastation and poverty generated by the two world wars and mass migration all played a huge factor in the economy and post war development in Italy.

The backbone of Italy's economy post war was the rise of family based companies, some of which went on to become multinational companies like Fiat and Pirelli, and Ansaldo. Many of the great Italian fashion houses and shoe companies have offices and stores now all over the world. In the past a lot of big companies were also government based but now there is a growing tendency for privatization like most countries around the world.

The small family based companies are still the majority in Italy but with the onset of the global village and huge competition with the Asian markets and cheap labour forces abroad, the smaller companies are facing stiff labour wages like the rest of the western world. The travel industry is Italy's life blood with tourism bring millions of Euro annually into Italy every year so the services, and hospitality industry is very large. However these are still usually family based.

Each region has its own unique characteristics and industries and to do business in Italy, one has to consider these local flavours so to find information about the local industries please read below to discover the regional differences.
