Tourism, like in other Italian regions, is one of the primary activities, thanks to the presence of the different natural beauties (lakes, mountains) and cities of art, therefore, Lombardy manages to attract a significant number of people every year. Lombardy is one of the top five in Italy (with Veneto, Tuscany, Lazio and Campania) respect of number of tourists arriving every year, with one percentage of the total national 13%. The average stay in Lombardy is 2.79 days. This is due to the type of tourism in Lombardy primarily related to business.
In 2011 total arrivals were approx 6100000 Italians and 5100000 foreigners. The national tourism is growing less than the foreign tourism. 50% of domestic tourism is generated by lombard people. Milan remains the second most visited city in Italy, after Rome.
In the industrial sector, Lombardy is the most important region of Italy. Heavy industry produces steel, rods, tubes and heavy pieces for turbines and railway. But of course, exist also the so-called INDUCED, what is developed around the production of automobiles, trains, planes, helicopters, arms etc., which required a high specialization of entire sectors mechanical.
It is no coincidence that the most of „ shapes and tools „ is produced around Milan, in Bergamo, Brescia, Varese, Como, Lecco. Without shapes and tools you cannot produce anything. Metal or plastic, small or big objects, they must have they own „shapes and tools”
The shapes they must be fixed on „numerical control machines” better knows as „ Robots”, that are produced in this very creative region. The robot must be equipped with special drills that cut the various necessary parts for each type of machinery.
Of course the technologies that serve the fashion are very developed.
Before designing a dress, the designer must have a textile high quality, which can not give up a good spinning, and to the good spinning, there is need excellent and very complex weaving and spinning machinery/machines. Ergo, serving engines, transmissions, and components hardened in the factories of Lombardy, where whole sectors make heat treatments. But also the most famous factory in the world that makes pneumatic, has need specific/ special machines,, and all this forms a part of a chain, a cultural heritage and a tradition that characterizes , for long centuries, the mechanic production of Lombardy.
AIn Lombardy, arts and crafts have very profound traditions in common. It’s enough to think of the unique man, Leonardo da Vinci, who has worked in Lombardy, made a school, and left an indelible footprint, footmark in this region. Around Milan, there is a little village – Lissone – where the entire population is a carpenter. But even the textiles, the ceramics, forged iron are typical products of Lombardy. Great designers are born and grow up in Lombardy.
Castigloni, Sottsas, Mendini, Bellini, Matteo Thun are designers and artists, who still have they atelier, workshop in Milan.
Lombardy of course has its own typical dishes such as “osso buco” , “cassora” , or rise with saffron. But Lombardy is also a real melting pot of dishes that are taken by immigrants from South. In the moment of the big industrial development, thousands of sicilians, apulians, calabrians, who was cooking their flavors, made them popular also in North. Hand in hand they are integrated, they married with the lombards, and kitchens and restaurants flourished, first in Milan, but also in other cities of Lombardy. But the great gourmets of Lombardy attracted even the best chefs from Tuscany, Umbria, Emiglia Romagna, and Liguria. You already know, if you would like to eat the beast and the most fresh seafood in Italy, you don’t need to go to the beach, but in Milan.
The ligurian fishermen just when arrive at the fishing port, at dawn, they start to sell their best goods for the agents of Milanese restaurants.

Russians, Ukrainians, Arabs, Jews, Indians, Thais, Serbs, Croats, Hungarians, Czechs, Turks, Romanians, Albanians, everyone has contributed to the internationalization of Lombard cuisine. Obviously, all of this must have a fantastic supplier of stores, fridges, kitchen equipments, pans made of iron, aluminum, and recently, of gold. The master chefs compete for coming in the restaurants Lombard from all around the world to present their „culinary arts”, in a place so refined.
What about architecture in a city like Milan, where the famous architect Gio Ponti built at the beginning of last the century, a building like the Pirelli Tower, a masterpiece/ main work of technology and design. Now the city in the vision of EXPO 2015, is outdoing itself, even in architecture. The Pirelli Tower became the number “0”, while skyscrapers are rising in the center of the city that will come to touch even 300 meters.
But the “style” Lombard in Milan shows a unique and traditional architectural imprint/ footprint, already at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The Fiera of Milan is the third in the World, ant the second in Europe, with the 400 000 square meters of soil to exposition. Hotels, Churches, Museums, the Meazza stadium, are one of the largest in Europe, well-known by fans in all around the world as San Siro.
Also the race racing of Monza is a myth! The first real races of Formula 1, took place in this unique area, where to win is a honor for any pilot.

The calm Po’ river unfolds in the Po plain, helping irrigate this land rich of food. Lombardy is not by accident considered like the barn/ granary of Italy. Rise is particularly recognized like a traditionally Lombard product. But also the whine is a strong pride. It’s enough to think of the Franciacorta, what is barely a mountain, but it is famous all around the world. Very developed also the breeding of cattle. Monday morning, there is a traditional market in Rovato, near Brescia.

ICT has increased the number of students and operates, who are studying communications in the most popular Milanese universities in Italy and in Europe.
Design is a discipline that has to put in the highlight the benefits of a product. There is not a field/area where design is not present.
Machinery, furniture, objects, packaging, logo, are subjects of this particular art-engineering. Milan has a tradition of industrial design.
In fact the city is full of artists, architects and designers who are settled masters in this sector.
In case of a region that has more than 9,000,000 inhabitants, with a four-lane highways, an own railway network, the most excellent hospitals in Europe, with immense amount of manufactures and services, it’s impossible to not think to create/ form trainers and managers.

These serve not just the private companies but also the huge administrative apparatus of Milan that, altogether, has nearly 4,000,000 inhabitants. And the provinces is the same region, are the same “thing”. Master’s degree, short courses of specialization, is local “product” for many foreigners.

Lombardia’s capital is Milan, an ancient city with a history, which goes back high in the Roman age. Its ancient name is Mediolanum, indicating it being the “centre” of this industrially and agriculturally rich region. The city’s peculiarity is that it lies 70 meters below sea level, and owing to this speciality all of the region’s rivers lead to the city, which contributed to the construction of a Europe-wide well-recognized canal system which was designed by the all time genius, Leonardo da Vinci, and which original sluicing is still in function. Leonardo did his service at the Sforza family as an architect, fortification designer and military technician, which contributed to the city’s continuous development (evolvo!) from the beginnings to the very present. Even today, Milan is being counted as Italy’s “Capital of Virtue and Moral”.
Lombardia is the heart of Italian industry. 60% of the country’s GDP is produced in this well-developed, highly industrialized province, which is also the reason of choosing it as the central base of our organization. However, Lombardia is a rich agricultural territory as well since Po plain is the most suitable territory for supplying Italy’s food industry.
