A country looking like a boot located by the Mediterranean Sea. Italy, the dream of hundreds of thousands of tourists, the birthplace of the most famous artists, couture fashion and pizza. It welcomes about 65 million tourists every year.However, it is known not only for its mild climate and warm sea.

Business tourism is also highly developed here - an opportunity not only to have a good time, but also to establish business relations. Italy attracts businessmen, first of all, with a developed infrastructure, rich cultural heritage, a large variety of conference centers and great investment opportunities. Mostly come here representatives of the fields of pharmaceuticals, banking, energy, cosmetology, telecommunications and insurance.

Italy is a suitable country for business tourism, because it can rightfully be considered the embodiment of an ideal balance between a rich culture and entrepreneurship. A large number of exhibitions, seminars, conferences and presentations are held here annually. Italy will be a discovery in the field of incredibly diverse national cuisine, dance, architecture and painting for a simple tourist. Here, you can fully feel the Italians' hot temperament, learn a lot about winemaking, sunbathe on sunny beaches with azure water, or go skiing from high mountains.

What is definitely worth doing while visiting this country? Surely a boat ride on a gondola along the Grand Canal of Venice immediately comes to mind under the watchful eye of a gondolier in a striped shirt and straw hat. Or creative photography with the leaning tower of Pisa. You were not in Italy if you did not freeze in admiration at the sight of the Cathedral of Milan, did not try to see the Pope in the Vatican, or did not overeat the most delicious pizza in Naples.

Entrepreneurship in the “land of wine and sun” is developing rapidly and very extensively. About 80% of enterprises are “family” businesses, which positively affects the fulfillment of tax obligations and the stable conduct of business, but interferes with the flexibility of the economy. The main volume of industrial production here is the extraction of minerals - mercury, silver, copper and iron ore. Italy occupies an important place in the global textile production market - about 4% of shoe exports are concentrated here.

It also holds a leading position among countries of the world in fishing and seafood, as well as their processing. This also includes the olive and grape industries, the cultivation of almonds and citrus fruits. Italy takes second place in the EU as a producer of ferrous metals, and in the world as a manufacturer of railway rolling stock, refrigerators, washing machines, furniture and garments. Italy is known to all as the birthplace of Ferrari and ranks third in the world in the production of racing cars.

Business Information

What can be an ordinary thing for us will turn out to be completely absurd for a resident of Italy - and we are talking about corruption now. Not a single Italian will take money from someone else - this is the mentality, which directly influences on the business culture. On the other hand, in Italy, it may be absolutely normal to manage a business due to relations, that are generally decisive here. Business is passed down through generations, from a father to a son, and therefore to advance a foreigner in the business field without any acquaintances can be a daunting task.

Not many people know, that the mentality of the locals extends to entrepreneurial activity. This means, that you need to be prepared for measured conversations, long delays and lazy talks about everyday things during business meetings. Since kinship and friendship relations lead here, the etiquette in business is quite open. It may be difficult for a foreigner to adapt promptly to a such culture, therefore, before starting a business, we advise you to live longer among the locals and absorb their habitual kind of life.

The Three Pillars of Economics
Trade, tourism and fashion - these are the three main components on which all of the peninsula rests. Namely these industries have become engines of the progress in Italy and remain to these days. And indeed - it is impossible to imagine this country without Fashion Week in Milan, without a bunch of hotels and wonderful entertainment for visitors and of course without unique Italian products.

Do you want to stand firmly on your feet in Italy? Develop your business in one of these fields - this is definitely a win-win option. Due to its favorable location, Italy receives excellent gifts from Mother Nature: olives, seafood, grapes and much more. By the way, in 2016, Italy took a leading position in the amount of produced olive oil and is also among the top ten countries in the catching and processing of fish.

Tourism also brings the lion's share of finance into the State's budget. Italy is one of the most visited countries in the world, that's why everything is done with comfort and love for a foreign tourist. There is even a special state organization ENIT, which actively promotes the development of tourism in all regions of the country.

Fashion is something, that is always alive and urgent. Italy has gathered all the most talented and successful designers, has raised and educated thousands of new ones and now is a real world giant in the field of style and beauty. The fashionable capitals of Italy are Milan, Florence and Rome. Here is the greatest concentration of fashion houses, boutiques, shopping galleries and vintage flea markets. For the connoisseurs of high fashion, there are lots of museums dedicated to style and mode, as well as various shows and refined exhibitions.

Immigration and starting a business
Opening a business somewhere abroad is no longer something unusual and unique - thousands of daredevils leave their home every year to move to hospitable Italy. By the way, today more than 400 thousand foreign entrepreneurs are registered in the “country of wine and sun”, and 3 million native Italians work for foreign business owners. 

So, what fields of activity should you focus on? In addition to the three main giants of the local economy, Italy is actively developing mining, mainly mercury, which could become a gold mine for an entrepreneurial foreigner. Also, an absolute option would be the development of alternative energy sources. Due to country’s rapid growth, Italy is experiencing a clear fuel and energy dependence, and 80% of all energy is imported from other countries. That’s why the state actively finances and supports projects devoted to alternative energy sources.

To sum up, we can surely say, that Italy is a country of prospects and incredible opportunities, it will become interesting to both  tourists and entrepreneurs  from various fields of activity…
