Navigation menu


For the past two years, Made in Italy has been working with its community of Italian entrepreneurs and companies, sharing success stories and innovation and organising events to foster dialogue between institutions and businesses. This work has been turned into the book Success Stories –Talent and Excellence of Italians.
The book collects the stories of resilient and innovative companies and courageous entrepreneurs who represent what in Italy works and the values behind Italian excellence.

It is a tribute to Made in Italy and an invitation to reflect on how Italy can significantly contribute to shaping a more sustainable, balanced, and inclusive global future.

In a world where international cooperation is vital, Italian success stories show how Italy can play a crucial role in facilitating the coordination of major global initiatives. From Artificial Intelligence to climate and food challenges, Made in Italy offers valuable lessons and innovative solutions that can contribute to the global debate.

All this takes on particular relevance in the year of Italy’s presidency of the G7, a period in which Italy has the responsibility of presiding over a restricted forum that, although not without its challenges, can influence and guide the global framework, both in the short term and in the medium and long term.

As a Made in Italy tribute for the Italian G7 Presidency, the book was chosen as an institutional gift for the Heads of State and Government attending the G7 Summit.

Twenty-three Italian companies have shared their stories and experiences in this first edition of the book: Avio, Dallara, InfoCert, Loccioni, Clementoni, Acetaia Malpighi, Acqua Smeraldina, Divella, Gentilini, Mutti, Rhea, Amaro Lucano, Nonino Distillatori, Marchesi Frescobaldi, BasicNet, E. Marinella, Original Marines, Falqui Prodotti Farmaceutici, Intercos, Recordati, Ludovico Martelli, Il San Pietro di Positano, Terme di Saturnia.

The book was made with the support of Challenge Network, eFM and Manpower Group with Associazione Marchi Storici d’Italia, Elis, Italiacamp, Maire, Sace, Simest, Willis Tower Watson and edited in collaboration with Agenzia ANSA.

The stories collected in the book revolve around nine thematic areas, even far away from each other. This demonstrates that the ingenuity, commitment, know-how, and creativity characterising Made in Italy are not limited to well-known segments such as fashion but extend to every sector.

Tradition and innovation are the fil rouge uniting Italy from north to south, from aerospace to agri-food, from pharmaceuticals to beauty, from craftsmanship to industry, from culture to technological innovation, from fashion to tourism.
