The Business End
AS ITALY’S CAPITAL, Rome hosts all of the principal institutions of the nation, such as the Presidency of the Republic, the Government, Parliament, main judicial courts, and many international institutions.
It could be said that the economy of Rome is characterised by the absence of heavy industry, while being dominated by high-technology companies - such as IT, aerospace, defence and telecommunications - as well as research, construction and commercial activities. Tourism is of course incredibly
important to Rome’s economy and has become synonymous with the city, due predominantly to the endless array of incredible historic sights to see; with so much culture to discover it is hardly surprising the City is always bustling with life.
It could in fact be said that today Rome is one of the most important tourist destinations in the World, predominantly due to the enormous number of archaeological and historic treasures that the city holds. This combined with its charming and unique traditions, makes Rome the perfect place for a jam packed business trip, where you will be truly immersed in all the city has to offer.
Rome is also the hub of the Italian film industry, thanks predominantly to the Cinecitta studios which have been incredibly popular since opening in the 1930s, and supported by the success of national radio and television.
