      In 1946, Italy became a republic after the results of a popular referendum
    • LANGUAGE
      Italian is the official language of Italy, and 93% of population are native Italian speaker
      Around 50% of population speak a regional dialect as mother tongue
      Many dialects are mutually unintelligible and thus considered by linguists as separate languages, but are not officially recognised

      The President of the Chamber of Deputies
    • The Italian economy ranks as the world's sixth largest economy measured by GDP

      Key industries include automobiles, shipbuilding, chemicals, furniture, clothing and textiles, leather goods and footwear, food processing, ceramic products, components and machinery
    • PUBLIC HOLIDAYS
    • CONVENTIONS AND CUSTOMS
    • MEETING ETIQUETTE
      Greetings are enthusiastic yet rather formal
      The usual handshake with direct eye contact and a smile suffices between strangers!
      Italians are guided by first impressions, so it is important that you demonstrate propriety and respect when greeting people, especially when meeting them for the first time!
      Wait until invited to move to a first name basis!
    • GIFT GIVING ETIQUETTE
      •  Do not: give chrysanthemums as they are used at funerals,red flowers as they indicate secrecy,yellow flowers as they indicate jealousy 
      • If you bring wine, make sure it is a good vintage. Quality, rather than quantity, is important.
      • Do not wrap gifts in black, as is traditionally a mourning colour.
      • Do not wrap gifts in purple, as it is a symbol of bad luck.
      •  Gifts are usually opened when received.
    • DINING ETIQUETTE
      If you are invited to an Italian house: If an invitation says the dress is informal, wear stylish clothes that are still rather formal.
      Punctuality is not mandatory. You may arrive between 15 minutes late if invited to dinner and up to 30 minutes late if invited to a party.
       If you are invited to a meal, bring gift-wrapped!
    • TABLE MANNERS
      Remain standing until you are invited to sit down. You may be shown to a particular seat.
      Do not keep your hands in your lap during the meal; however, do not rest your elbows on the table either
      If you do not want more wine, leave your wineglass nearly full
    • RELATIONSHIPS AND COMMUNICATION
      Italians prefer to do business with people they know and trust
      they prefer face-to-face contact
      Italians judge people on appearances and the first impression you make,will be a lasting one
      Italians are extremely expressive communicators.
    • BUSINESS MEETING ETIQUETTE
      Appointments are mandatory and should be made in writing (in Italian) 2 to 3 weeks in advance
      Many companies are closed in August, so it is best not to try to schedule meetings then
      It is common to be interrupted while talking
      People often raise their voice to be heard over other speakers
    • BUSINESS NOGOTIATION
      In the north, people are direct, see time as money, and get down to business after only a brief period of social talk
      Never use high-pressure sales tactics
      Hierarchy is the cornerstone of Italian business. Italians respect power and age
      Decisions are often based more on how you are viewed by the other party than on concrete business objectives
    • DRESS ETIQUETTE
      Dressing well is a priority in Italy
      Men should wear dark coloured, conservative business suits
      Women should wear either business suits or conservative dresses
      Elegant accessories are equally important for men and women
