The shared heritage of Umbria's also represents the added value transpiring from industrial production that makes us competitive on difficult markets. The many centuries of constant development in our community is now our biggest advantage against the mediocrity and decline in standards brought by globalisation.
The shapes, colours, sounds and architectures that make our towns unique over time have moulded a style and enhanced civic pride, which is poured into many aspects of local everyday life and crafts. This style is the soul of many products, the result of that "natural genius" rooted in our history and which also contains the features of spirituality that the world knows and respects. Green Umbria, with its nature and landscapes, merges with a millenary stratification of human work in the towns, creating an integration that represents a shared value by which we feel bound. All this is interwoven with an economic fabric of SMEs and an entrepreneurial rate higher than the national average. Companies operating in the steel and chemical sectors, in food and confectionery, fashion and high technology, with a single common denominator: the search or innovation, scientific knowledge, the human expertise of our area. Agriculture for us is an opportunity for economic development and enhancement of the environment without exploitation of the territory, trade oriented to consumer health, with production of fine food and wine also targeting foreign markets. A notion that places the quality of the environment at the heart of our work, as a place for quality of life and community rapport. The territory as the essential nucleus for the effective implementation of the sustainability concept.
