Confindustria is the main association representing manufacturing and service companies in Italy, with a voluntary membership of more than 150,000 companies of all sizes, employing a total of 5,440,125 people. The association’s activities are aimed at guaranteeing the central importance of companies, the drivers of Italy’s economic, social and civil development. By representing companies and their values at institutions of all levels, Confindustria contributes to social well-being and progress, and from this standpoint guarantees increasingly diversified, efficient and modern services. Confindustria’s added value stems from its network: a headquarters in Rome, 220 local and trade associations and since 1958 a delegation in Brussels, which has seen its strategic importance grow over the years and is now a benchmark for the entire Italian economic system at the European Union. 184 people work at the Rome headquarters and 13 at the Brussels delegation and have an average age of 42.
