With nearly 65M people and 22M households, Italy shows
the eighth-highest quality of life index rating in the world.
Despite the current crisis period, Italy’s high tech market is still solid and characterised by a positive sign of growth (+1,7% overall, 3Q 2008).
The Italian market yields 2-3% of worldwide revenues, and 8-12% of Europe revenues.
